The liposuction surgeon is a medically certified and licensed doctor who is authorized by both the State and the hospital he is in to perform liposuction. Even the more recent ways of doing a liposuction, which do not need to make incisions in the body, a licensed liposuction surgeon or doctor should be the one to perform this. There is actually a vast role that the liposuction surgeon plays in the procedure and it is not limited to being the one who will handle the tumescent shaft during the procedure.
Choosing Your Liposuction Surgeon
First and foremost, before choosing a liposuction surgeon, you must get recommendations from credible doctors and also experienced friends. The importance of getting recommendations from other doctors is that you can also get the recommending doctor’s opinions regarding the one he recommends. You can also look up government or state databases regarding a professional liposuction surgeon and their background via the internet. One can also see which part of the anatomy a certain doctor prefers to do, like a thigh liposuction or a tummy liposuction.
Other points to keep in mind when choosing your liposuction surgeon are the residency training of the liposuction surgeon as well as the school he studied in. Things to look out for with these points are exotic places (out of the country) where the doctor (who is supposed to be an American citizen) studied the liposuction procedure. This does not necessarily mean that the liposuction surgeon is a bad one or that the school he trained in is but there should be something fishy about studying for something that one can easily do stateside.
Taking note of some of the hobbies and interest of the possible liposuction surgeon can give you an insight with his level of skill. Although, this method is not entirely a surefire one, you can get the gist of his skill by looking into his artistic side as well as what sports he plays. A liposuction surgeon who does not take good care of his hands can be someone who is not as gentle with the procedure as you would like him to be. Some surgeons are even artists who delight in displaying their works of art in their clinics. This means that they have delicate and skillful hands which can perform wonders. The sports angle can also indicate the possible hand to eye coordination of the liposuction surgeon. Sports which require this can show an inkling of how well coordinate the surgeon is.
