"Best" BBL surgeon in the US?
If someone "claims" to be best, then they would be subject to sanctions by our professional societies, and who would actually BELIEVE someone who is so self-absorbed to claim that (or even imply it) anyway?
There is a fine line between confidence and cockiness, self-deprecation and humility, and recitation of training and accomplishments and touting of experience with "x-thousands" of operations.
I really like Dr. Aldea's answer. Please read it (again). Do your homework yourself with multiple consultations, after first doing research into training, credentials, reviews, and photographic results of several ABPS-certified plastic surgeons. I would suggest that each and every one of us SHOULD claim that nobody can work harder or try to more effectively earn your trust--if any surgeon is not enthusiastic, energetic, and passionate about you and your result, or if they just seem to be "phoning it in" without really giving your outcome the highest priority (you are simply a Porsche payment), then run, don't walk, from THAT office and find someone else who REALLY cares. Sorry, no easy answer, or "best" list here. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen
"BEST BBL Surgeon" in the US
Moreover, unlike sports where athletes compete and are compared based on speed, touvh downs, baskets or home runs scored, HOW can any ethical Plastic surgeon state that he is the best? It's not as if we had 100 identical twins being operated on by 100 plastic surgeons and the results were down put on large screens for thousands to see and vote on?
So where does it leave you? Do your homework. Look at each surgeon's training. How do they compare? Look at your chosen surgeons' reviews. How do they compare? Then go visit a number of them and see for yourself how they come across and how does their staff come across? Who inspires most confidence?
Whoever wins your scrutiny is THE BEST Plastic surgeon for you.
