Cosmetic Surgery

If you have finally decided to have plastic surgery, you definitely can’t overlook the importance of picking the right cosmetic surgeon for the job.

But the fact that there is a sea of plastic surgeons out there means that choosing the best surgeon can be a bit overwhelming. That is why there are some important questions you need to ask a prospective cosmetic surgeon in order to find out whether they are the best fit for the job or not. Below are some of the questions that you should ask a potential plastic surgeon prior to settling on them.

1. Are you board certified?

All cosmetic surgeons aren’t alike. Surgeons who are certified by ABPS (American Board of plastic Surgery) are not only uniquely certified but they are also specially trained as well. As such, don’t assume that every surgeon out there is board certified, and therefore you should insist on knowing whether a prospective surgeon is certified or not prior to settling on them. If they insist they are board certified, ask them to give you documents showing that indeed they are board certified.

2. How many times have you performed the procedure?

Cosmetic surgery isn’t only costly, but there are also risks and complications involved as well. That is why you should strive at getting a cosmetic surgeon with a proven track record of performing Des Moines cosmetic surgery safely and with the lowest rate of complications possible. As such, insist on knowing the number of times a prospective surgeon has performed the procedure so that you can rest assured that they are well-poised to get the job done. If possible, go for the surgeon who has performed the procedure several times since there are more experienced as opposed to a surgeon who has performed the procedure only a few times.

3. Do you provide post-operative care?

At times, you may need post-operative care after undergoing cosmetic surgery. However, not every surgeon out there will provide you with post-operative care. Therefore, you should ask a prospective surgeon whether they offer post-operative care or not. Again, if they say they offer post-operative care, they should also tell you whether the cost is included in the initial cost of cosmetic surgery or whether you will be required to pay additional costs.

Once you ask a prospective surgeon these questions, you will definitely come closer to finding a surgeon who is well-poised to give the best results possible after cosmetic surgery.

This goes without saying it – Yes, you do. Yet, do all people agree? While most will nod in unison on how important the services of a dentist is to an individual, only a handful are able to commit regularlying visiting their dentist because they find there is no need to.

The Regular Check Up

h1The dentist is going to check each of your teeth to look for any cavities and also for tartar or plaque that are building up on your teeth. Plaque is the sticky and clear layer of bacteria that is living on the top surface of the teeth. If plaque is not eliminated from the teeth, it will harden over time and will develop into tartar. Individuals do not have the right tools to remove tartar from the teeth with the use of flossing and brushing. Once tartar and plaque builds up on your teeth, it has the capacity to cause serious oral diseases. Once each of your teeth are checked, your dentist will tell you anything that they have found abnormal. They do this to give you time to consider whether or not you are permitting your dentist to perform the necessary treatment or not, in the event that they found something. Next is your gums will be checked, too. Just like how each of your teeth are checked, your gums are going to be thoroughly looked at with the use of a special tool that will be used to measure the spaces in between the teeth, especially if they are shallwo ones. People that acquire gum diseases often display deeper spaces between the teeth. Other checkups will include your tongue, neck, head, face and throat.

The Cleaning

Society, including your parents, have always emphasized it to you that you need to regularly brush and floss your teeth everyday, but tartar that has already built up on your teeth can never be removed by any brushes or floss. Your dentist is capable of removing tartar as they are complete with the necessary tools to remove them. This is a procedure called scaling. The cleaning process can take a while, especially if your last visit was two years ago. The tartar has already built up too much and has gotten too hard that it will take scaling a while to complete. And the pain can be quite severe, too, as they have to remove all tartar. Once the teeth are completely scaled off, they will be polished with the use of a gritty paste, a little ‘shower’ to remove the paste and completely cleaning with an electric brush.
