Practical Advice on Choosing a Cosmetic Doctor: Dr Lycka & Dr Kress

Two Best Selling Authors Highlight The Importance Of Wisely Choosing A Cosmetic Doctor


Edmonton, AB -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/10/2016 -- Choosing a cosmetic doctor is not, by any means, an easy thing to do. In fact, it can be rather overwhelming for a prospective cosmetic surgery patient to even know where to start. Do they start with websites, social media ads, billboards, or where? The practical advice is not to start with any of those things, but instead start by checking out appropriate board certifications, other relevant credentials, and local regulatory authorities. Then there is the initial consultation to prepare for. It might seem like a lot of hard work and inconvenience, but a poor choice of cosmetic doctor will create poor levels of results, unexpected expense, and often injury & tissue damage that cannot be repaired.

This week (09May16) on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today, show host Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka talks with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr Donald Kress, from his practice in Frederick, Maryland. Both doctors are passionate about helping people to wisely chose their cosmetic doctor, and both have written best-selling books on this subject.

In this in-depth interview, Dr Lycka & Dr Kress begin with a discussion around the quote from Dr Kress that "When you choose your cosmetic doctor, you are choosing your cosmetic surgery results." They talk about the meaning of Board Certification and what to look out for, particularly if the doctor's certification is actually relevant to the proposed cosmetic surgery procedure. Dr Kress shares some 'horror stories' which highlight the importance of checking with local regulatory authorities regarding disciplinary action & complaints. Both doctors then move on to share their opinions and advice on how to prepare for an initial consultation, including many 'red flags' to take notice of whilst at the doctor's office or facility, and when talking with the staff and the doctor during the consultation.
