With all the choices of cosmetic medical and surgical treatments, it is important to make the right decision when considering cosmetic procedures. Unfortunately expensive and enticing marketing of cosmetic procedures is often more effective than the particular procedure. Non surgical and minimally invasive surgical procedures are advertised as being cheaper, easier, and better than more extensive surgical procedures.
How can one make a decision? A second opinion from a Surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery should be considered before spending the money and assuming the risk an advertised alternative treatment or procedure. The goal of our Dallas and Allen, TX, plastic surgeons is to inform their patients on the realistic expectations from cosmetic surgeries. In fact, we have an entire portion of our website devoted to this: we call it Plastic Surgery: Promises and Pitfalls.

We just added a new website page to our list of Cosmetic Surgery: Promises and Pitfalls – Patients Researching Cosmetic Surgery: Examine the doctor’s website.
When we want a specific cosmetic procedure our instinct is to begin with a search engine to get a list of web pages. Or, we’ll use a social networking website to ask friends: they’ll give us a list of doctors to consider.
Once we see a plastic surgeon’s website, then what? That’s when the confusion sets in. Here are ways to evaluate the doctor’s website so you can decide who’s the right choice for you.
A franchised and patented surgical technique, such as the widely advertised Lifestyle Lift, is actually purchased by a physician to sell to patients (customers).
These physicians may take an initial weekend course to learn how to do the procedure; however, once the procedure is performed at their practice there is little if any quality control by the franchising company. The physician may or may not be certified by an appropriate board or certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
It is our observation that the main service such a company provides is a slick marketing program. The consumer should read the fine print in the ads (very enlightening) and always get a second medical opinion.
