Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/09/2013 -- Choosing a plastic surgeon may seem like a straightforward and common sense process, but many people make mistakes and make a poor choice – a choice which can injure them.

This week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today, on webtalkradio.net, practical wise advice on the things to check for when choosing a plastic surgeon is discussed by show host, Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka, and his guest, Dr Donald Kress, board certified plastic surgeon from Frederick, Maryland. Both Dr Kress and Dr Lycka have published recent books on this subject – both written because they wanted to share advice, educate the public on the process and pitfalls on choosing a cosmetic doctor, and to prevent people from being harmed and injured by poor choices and poor surgery.

In this in-depth interview, the two doctors begin by discussing the problems they see when people make poor choices about plastic & cosmetic surgery. Dr Kress shares practical advice on how the initial consultation with a prospective surgeon should proceed, and the strange things that can happen when seeking advice and referrals from close friends and family members. Both doctors explain the importance of understanding exactly what Board Certification really means and additional ways to check out the credentials of a surgeon. They consider the strange world of celebrity cosmetic surgery, and finish their discussions with thoughts and advice of how to deal with results that are maybe not what a patient had expected from their surgery.

Dr Lycka and Dr Kress also share many interesting anecdotes and examples to illustrate the dangers of making a mistake when choosing a plastic surgeon.
