How to Choose a Plastic Surgeon

Are you wondering how to choose a plastic surgeon? Plastic surgery is a multi-specialty field, and surgeons are required to meet certain standards to perform these specialties. Dr. Demetri is a double board certified facial plastic surgeon who has a very specialized niche within plastic surgery. Facial plastic surgeons should be a member of The American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, as well as the The American Board of Plastic Surgery or The American Board of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery.

While certification from these medical organizations is an important factor, it is also important to look at other proof of competence, such as before/after photos of a plastic surgeon’s work. Here on our website you will find hundreds of before and after photos of our patients. This will allow you to make sure our natural yet noticeable aesthetic matches yours.

Hospital affiliations are also worth noting. If a surgeon is allowed to perform plastic surgery in accredited hospitals, this is a mark of credibility. Dr. Demetri has surgical privileges at Tampa’s best and most reputable hospital, Tampa General.

Once a plastic surgeon has caught your attention, scheduling for a consultation is the next step. A competent plastic surgeon should be able to answer all of your questions, make you feel comfortable, and lay out all the details regarding the procedure. This includes the risks and potential complications in addition to the benefits. At our office, the consultation is just the first step in your journey. Once your procedure is scheduled, we then have you return for a “preop” appointment where we again review the details of your procedure as well as all after-care. This appointment may take over an hour as we are extremely thorough at explaining everything to you again.

Any additional questions you may have will be handled by our Patient Care Coordinator. If you prefer, we could even help you get in touch with previous patients of ours to ask them about their experience.
