Plastic surgery is an important decision that can change your life. Therefore, selecting the right plastic surgeon is a critical part of the process. With so many options available, it can be challenging to decide on the right surgeon to perform your cosmetic procedure. In this blog post, we will outline the key factors to consider when choosing a plastic surgeon.

Board Certification 

The first step in selecting the right plastic surgeon is to look for board certification in plastic surgery. Ensure that the surgeon is board-certified by a reputable board of plastic surgery. This certification is essential because it ensures that the surgeon has completed rigorous training and passed the necessary exams to become a qualified plastic surgeon. Therefore, always choose a board-certified surgeon to ensure you receive the best possible care.

Style and Approach 

It’s essential to study the surgeon’s style and approach to make sure it aligns with your expectations. Always check the surgeon’s expertise and experience in the specific procedure you require. The right surgeon should be able to explain the process and expected outcomes.

Operating Facility

Vet the facility where your procedure will take place. Find out whether the surgeon’s operating facility is accredited and whether the operating facility is of high quality. Ensure that the facility has the necessary equipment and personnel to provide optimal care during and after the procedure.

Choose Someone You Trust 

Choosing a plastic surgeon is a personal decision, and you must feel comfortable around the surgeon you choose. Look for honesty and pay attention to how the surgeon and staff make you feel. You should relate to and feel comfortable with your surgeon and his team, as they will be guiding you through your journey.

Customer Service Matters

Customer service is another essential factor to consider. The right surgeon and staff should be friendly, courteous, and accommodating. They should answer your questions and provide you with the necessary information to make an informed decision.

Ask for Referrals

Ask for referrals and testimonials from satisfied patients. Referrals from friends, family, or other healthcare professionals can be valuable resources. Testimonials and reviews from previous patients can provide insight into the surgeon’s skills, bedside manner, and overall experience.

Insurance Coverage 

Understand the coverage of your insurance. Some procedures may be covered by insurance, and it’s important to know the limits and restrictions of your coverage.


Book a consultation with the surgeon you are considering. During this consultation, you should have the opportunity to ask questions, discuss your goals, and learn about the surgical process. Use this time to get to know the surgeon and assess whether they are the right fit for you.

In conclusion, selecting the right plastic surgeon is essential to ensure the best possible outcome for your procedure. Consider board certification, the surgeon’s style and approach, the operating facility, customer service, referrals, insurance coverage, and the consultation process when making your decision. With the right surgeon, you can achieve the results you desire and enjoy the benefits of plastic/ aesthetic and reconstructive surgery.

How to Choose the Right Plastic Surgeon?


Aesthetic face and breast expert Dr. Ghofrani, talking about eyelid surgery on men.

So the most common request from men is rejuvenation of the eyelids and eyebrows. And the reason is that many men develop saggy, lower eyelids and eyebags when they get older, and the best way to remove the eye bags and rejuvenate the lower eyelid is a procedure which we call the lower eyelid lift, and the ibec removal is also accomplished in the same procedure.

Very often we also have to address the upper eyelids because they are droopy as well. When it comes to eye bag removal. I think it’s very crucial not to remove too much of the fat, because if you remove too much of the fat and the individual gets older, some of the remaining fat will atrophy, so it will become smaller. And this can result in a hollow eye.

And I’ve seen it many times in patients who approached me for corrective surgery that they’re complaining about hollow eyes. So in order to remove an eye bag and still keep the youthful look for many years to come, is to remove some of the fat but to preserve some of it and redistribute it over the bone and the other facial features to make a more smooth transition from the lower eyelid to the mid face area. For the upper eyelid. The surgery is pretty straightforward, and the scar will lie in the upper eyelid crease, which is basically invisible when the eyes are open.


Plastic/ aesthetic surgeon Dr. Ghofrani explains method and effect of botulinum toxin treatments

I would like to talk about botulinum toxin treatments. One of the brand names would be Botox. What does it do? There is a lot of misconception and a lot of false information on the internet. Because Botox is used to treat wrinkles, but what kind of wrinkles and what makes it different from fillers? I will talk about fillers in my next video.

Method & Effect Of Botulinum Toxin Treatments:

Botox is a drug that we administer to certain muscles. That paralyzes the muscle because it just interrupts the connection between the nerve impulse and the reaction. And this interruption lasts for a certain time. Not forever. Usually, after three to six months, this connection is reestablished and the muscle can move again. So, if you had a Botox treatment, and you liked the result, you will have to do it again. Roughly after six months.

There is a big variance in individuals how often they need to go for Botox treatments, but three to six months. That’s a good average to know.

What Kind Of Wrinkles & Areas Can Be Treated With Botox?

Forehead Area:

Now I want to show you this other graphic over here. So if you look at this graphic, the most common areas where we treat patients with Botox are the frontal areas of the forehead, to reduce the forehead lines so there are different points where we inject the Botox to weaken this muscle. So it won’t show the lines that much.

Frown Lines Area:

The second most common area is the frown lines, where we inject certain points to reduce the frown lines

Crow’s Feet Area:

The crow’s feet are at the lateral part of the eyes, where the orbicularis muscle is weakened in this lateral part to reduce the show of the crow’s feet wrinkles when you smile.

Nose Area Treatment:

But that’s not all. We can also use botox to reduce the activity of the muscle on the top of the back of your nose which will create many lines in some individuals.

Gummy Smile Treatment:

You can weaken this pair of muscles here to reduce the gummy smile, some people smile it shows a lot of gum in the upper teeth. And by weakening these muscles. The upper lip will not move up that much so you can reduce the gum smile.
