Selecting from the Best Beverly Hills-based Cosmetic Surgeons

Posted on May 06, 2013 at

Everyone who gets cosmetic surgery done does so for their own unique reasons and so, for the most part, they all have a different idea of what qualities make the best cosmetic surgeon. Beverly Hills is home to many of the world’s best cosmetic surgeons. Beverly Hills is also home to a large number of cosmetic surgery patients, but how did they choose the surgeon that was right for them, and how can you do the same?

At a bare minimum, look for a surgeon who is board certified. That means certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and not just by the AMA. Any doctor can legally claim to be a plastic surgeon, even if they don’t specialize in cosmetic surgery procedures. Although board certification is no absolute guarantee of quality, if your surgeon is not board certified you can be sure he’s not the best cosmetic surgeon. Beverly Hills has no shortage of certified surgeons, so there is no reason to choose one who is not.

For some people “the best” is the same as saying “the cheapest”. This is not a great way to think about cosmetic surgery, as you often get what you pay for. When you consider the potential for both positive, or negative change as result of most cosmetic surgery procedures, is this really an aspect of your life where you want to go bargain hunting? When or anywhere else, the cheapest is very seldom the best choice.

For other people, “the best” means a surgeon who specializes in whatever procedure the patient wants to have done. This isn’t as obviously a bad idea as looking for the cheapest option, but it does carry with it some hidden dangers. Some cosmetic surgeons are specialized in one or two procedures to such degree that those procedures are the only ones they perform. Then, in much the same way that everything looks like a nail to a man with a hammer, the temptation with these surgeons can be to try and solve every problem using the same procedure. Over-specialization is not a quality possessed by the best cosmetic surgeon.

Beverly Hills, thankfully, has no shortage of talented, qualified cosmetic surgeons who offer a wide variety of procedures, and who are willing to spend the time to consult carefully with their patients in order to determine which procedure is best suited for them on a case-by-case basis. Surgeons like Dr. Perry Liu, who performs both surgical and nonsurgical procedures, including cutting edge treatments like stem cell therapy.

Dr. Liu`s wealth of experience and training, as well as his dedication to providing his patients with the most aesthetically pleasing results possible, using the most appropriate treatments available, are what makes him possibly the best cosmetic surgeon Beverly Hills has to offer. Unlike the man with a hammer, Dr. Liu has a whole toolbox and is very aware that every one of his patients is unique, and therefore requires unique treatment.
