How to Have Surgery and Still Look Natural?

Why is it that you can tell when someone has had surgery? Is there a way to avoid looking as if you had work done? Does it have to do with the surgeon?
What do you mean?
What is that look that you are referring to? Obviously facial surgery will be visible for several days afterward, but what about on the body? How long are you referring to after surgery? What is that look anyway that you mentioned?
I think it takes a lot of quality effort to avoid the "fake look." You should search out a doctor that gets great results, they are out there.
Having Plastic Surgery and Looking Natural
My goal is to have my patients leave the office with a natural and rejuvenated look. I want them to walk down 5th Avenue and have their friends tell them "you look great." I don't wan't someone asking them, "oh, what surgery did you have." By carefully planning surgery and operating conservatively we can achieve a natural look. Sometimes I have to remind patients that even though a little is great, more is not necessarily better. A careful balance needs to be achieved between making changes and looking natural. Good luck.

A natural look after plastic surgery
Plastic surgery is really designed for conversational distance of 3 to 4 feet. It cannot be reliably made to be unseen at less than 6 inches. That is just the nature of cuts, sutures and the way skin heals. To some degree patient satisfication is not directly proportional to the end look. Some people acutual want a noticeable result outside the realm of a natural look. If you want a natural look so that someone who first meets you can't see you had surgery do not ask you surgeon for too much and do not have too much surgery or too many surgical procedures, especially not on the same area of the body.
Best way to avoid the "operated" look is to choose your surgeon carefully
The answer to your question is that, yes, the best way to avoid having the appearance of having had surgery is to choose your surgeon carefully.
There are other important variables as well, however, including being careful to communicate your goals effectively and conscientiously following your postoperative instructions...
But the most important consideration is for you to choose a surgeon that you like and feel you can trust, who has the education, training, experience, and integrity necessary to keep you safe and help you achieve your goals.
