Choosing Your Gynecomastia Surgeon by Reading Reviews
Finding the right cosmetic surgeon is a challenge, especially for men, who tend to be more private. Men who suffer from male breasts are not likely to ask friends for referrals for a gynecomastia specialist, so most will do an internet search in the privacy of their own home. Websites for plastic surgeons do give a lot of information and are a valuable tool. However, personal websites will be biased in favor of the doctor, and that should not be a surprise, so what do you do?
View before and after pictures of various surgeons’ patients, and pick a couple you like. Then, Miguel Delgado, M.D. recommends that you go to different websites that are dedicated to giving reviews of plastic surgeons. There are many websites available that do this, after checking them out you will probably get a good idea of the capabilities of the surgeon. Bear in mind that there will almost always be a couple of bad reviews, and don’t let that discourage you, there will always be people that have unrealistic expectations. Go with what the majority of reviews reflect for a reliable evaluation.
Some of the websites that give reviews will give lots of important information, and have patients answer questions such as;
1. Was it easy to make an appointment?
2. Was the receptionist friendly and make you feel comfortable?
3. Did you have to wait very long to be seen by the doctor?
4. Were all your questions answered to your satisfaction?
5. Did you feel you had good communication with the doctor?
6. Were you happy with the results of your surgery?
7. Was your post-operative care adequate?
