Like many mommies, Lynn (featured above), was tired of hiding behind XL t-shirts and stretched-out yoga pants. But the hip-to-hip tummy tuck incision sounded absolutely terrifying ... until she visited the right surgeon.

"He put me immediately at ease," says Lynn, "He pulled out pictures, explained the process in detail and told me how much time it would take to heal completely. After talking with him, there was no reason to be scared. I was looking forward to having it done."

Helping you find a surgeon, who is a "keeper" (like Lynn's), is a passion here at RealSelf. We know you're likely to love your "after",  if you start with a skilled surgeon who takes time to explain everything. That's just one of the reasons we provide a space for you to ask board-certified surgeons your pre-and-post op questions.

With this in mind, we'd like to share another secret weapon -- The Smart Beauty Guide created by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). The guide offers a plastic surgery planning kit, a Q & A forum, and a search tool for finding an ASAPS-credentialed surgeon.

"It's a great [online] place to start -- to find general information about plastic surgery and to get an extra layer of confidence that the surgeon you are choosing is qualified, credentialed and ethical ..." says plastic surgeon Dr. Sanjay Grover, ASAPS Vice Commissioner for Communications, "knowledge is a beautiful thing." 

We couldn't have said it better ...
