I am considering a facial plastic surgery- preferably a rhinoplasty and chin alteration.I am not certain if I have to go for either one of them.My aim is to improve my facial attractiveness.I need help in understanding which plastic surgeon to approach? what is it that i have to consider while choosing a right surgeon? how do i know that the surgeon I have opted is relaible and not fake?
Please help me with relevant answers ,as its got to do with my face and I want to choose a surgeon carefully.I stay in India.I would opt for a surgoen in here .I am even fine with travelling abroad;provided i find a right surgeon.Can someone help me with good references; in india or abroad?

Hi Anon,

Plastic Surgery is a BIG deal. It is important that you visit more than one doctor and ask as many questions as you need answers to.
I have done some research for you and have found three prominent plastic surgeons in India:

Like I said, visit them, ask questions, view their work, their credentials, etc. If you do not feel comfortable with them then keep looking.

Here are some important questions to ask them once you're in their office:

1. Are you board certified?
2. How long have you been performing this procedure?
3. Can I see "before" and "after" photos?
4. Can I speak to an actual patient who has had this procedure done?
5. Is the center where the procedure going to take place licensed and certified? Are you affilliated with any hospitals? If so, which ones?
6. Which type of anesthesia will be used and who will be administering it?
7. Who will perform the surgery and all of its postoperative care?

Feel free to add any other questions you may have to this list. Remember to interview several doctors and go with your instinct and do keep realistic expectations.

Celebrities in Hollywood tend to have their own plastic surgeon preference but many of them stick with California's top plastic surgeons which are located on Rodeo Drive. You don't have to go with one of these surgeons in order to get the results you desire.

Hope this helps and let us know if you have any other questions!

Good Luck!
