Plastic Surgery: Q&AAsk a Question
How Much Weight Should I Give to Doctors Recommendations of Other Doctors?
I am getting a nose revision. The first procedure I did no research. This procedure I am doing all research I can possibly do. Including asking my uroligist, my Family doctor, and my dermatologist what they think. 2 of them claim one surgeon to be the best nose Doctor in BC. Should (added to my own research: before and after pics, and my own research of the surgeons) take my doctors opinions into consideration? Or is it a popularity contest among them?
