Getting the results you want from your cosmetic surgery means working with a cosmetic surgeon you trust, with whom you have a good rapport. Don’t be afraid to “shop around” and visit several surgeons’ offices before deciding which surgeon is a good fit for you.
An excellent place to begin your search is by getting referrals from friends or family who’ve had successful plastic surgery. If you have a friend or family member who has had cosmetic surgery and raves about her results, ask for a referral. Check online review sites as well, but be aware that not all review sites are created equal. Rely upon well-known review sites like Yelp for the most accurate reviews.
It’s important to work with a well-qualified surgeon. Don’t be shy about asking for their educational background and certifications. Ask how many times they’ve preformed the specific procedure you’re seeking, and ask to see before and after photos of past patients. Dr. Rast received his undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University, and went on to gain his medical degree from Southwestern Medical School at the University of Texas to become a cosmetic surgeon. He completed further training at the Louisiana State University Medical Center and at the Medical University of South Carolina.
Most importantly, you need to feel heard and respected by your plastic surgeon. Your goals, concerns, and needs are specific to your case, and no two bodies are alike. Your surgeon should take the time to discuss your goals and what you hope to get out of your procedure. He or she should help educate you on what to expect and the limitations and possibilities of the procedure you’re considering. Dr. Rast prides himself on surpassing the expectations of his patients and preforming the highest quality cosmetic surgery available in the Kansas City area. Call for your consultation today.
