Mommy Makeover Plastic Surgeon Recommendations
Can anyone recommend a good plastic surgeon for a mommy makeover in Dallas area?
Experience should not be measured solely by the age of the surgeon or how many years s/he has been in practice. Checking the education and training is more valuable - a Board Certified MD plastic surgeon who was accepted to and completed an integrated plastic surgery residency, in today's day and age, are excellent choices. Those are the top students who have superior training at top institutes. Plastic Surgery is NOT a fellowship...it is a residency. Those surgeons who have actually successfully completed additional fellowship training beyond the plastic surgery residency are also passionate about that area and will likely have the most recent, innovative, and up to date techniques. These are usually the younger surgeons, who are still readily willing and competent to continue to strive for the newest material and remain up to date on literature and conferences.
You must decide for yourself who you are most comfortable with and confident with who will meet your goals and expectations. Cost may differ just on expertise and the aforementioned additional training ad what that additional expertise training has afforded to his/her patients. Hope that this helps! Best wishes!

Plastic Surgeon Selection
Thank you for the question. You will have many good surgeons to select from in your area.
Some general advice you may find helpful....
Anyone considering plastic or reconstructive surgery should consider consulting a board certified plastic surgeon to achieve the best and safest results possible. Physicians who are considered board certified hold a certification with the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). This certification proves that the surgeon has graduated from an accredited medical school, has completed a residency of at least five years, has three years of experience in general surgery, is actively practicing plastic surgery for at least two years, and has passed mandatory comprehensive and written examinations. These surgeons are referred to as diplomats of the ABPS and have fulfilled the following requirements.
It is in the patient’s best interest to choose a board certified plastic surgeon. It is vital to your safety and the success of your cosmetic surgery that the surgeon you choose has the right qualifications, ample experience, and documented results of his or her work. ABPS diplomats have extensive skill and experience in a wide range of plastic surgery procedures.
There are a number of advantages in choosing a qualified and highly experienced Board Certified plastic surgeon to perform your cosmetic surgery. If there are any complications during surgery, an experienced plastic surgeon will be more adept at handling the situation. In addition, a plastic surgeon that has performed many cosmetic surgeries will have had more time to perfect his or her technique and results. Reputable plastic surgeons should have privileges to perform cosmetic surgery procedures in the operating room at an accredited hospital, not just in the surgery center in their office. They work with a highly skilled team including, board certified anesthesiologists, nurses, and technicians to enhance patient comfort and to provide a peace of mind to the patient’s and their families.
During your consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon, ask to see before and after photos of actual patients who have undergone cosmetic surgery. The surgeon may provide you with a list of patients you may speak to as a reference for the doctor. To enhance your education regarding the surgeon, you may be introduced to some post-op patients as well during your visit with the surgeon. Most patients are willing to share their experience regarding their surgeon, the staff, hospital, and recovery.
I hope this helps.
You are lucky, lots of good choices
There are many fine surgeons who are Diplomates of the American Board of Plastic Surgery near Bedford. Make sure you choose one who is because a mommy makeover requires a skilled surgeon. I have office in Keller and Fort Worth and a surgery center in Southlake. Other good colleagues of mine include Dr Heistein, Dr Reaves, Dr Mason, Dr Kasden, Dr Bogdan, Dr Obaid, and Dr Bledsoe who all have office in North Tarrant County and perform surgery near the midcities. Getting multiple opininons always makes sense. Make sure you connect with your surgeon and that they understand your look, style, and expectations. Good luck with your surgery. Check out my website to find some 3-D animation videos of mommy makeovers.

The ASPS website would be a good starting point for a list of qualified, board certified plastic surgeons. Dr. Steven White and Dr. Neil Saretsky are possibilities. Consult with 3 - 4 surgeons to understand your options.
Choosing a surgeon.
Fortunately, there are many excellent surgeons in the Dallas area. The easiest place to start is by using the "Find a Doctor" tool on the American Society of Plastic Surgeons website (plasticsurgery.org). This tool will help you find plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery in your area. After reviewing their information, you can better decide whom you would like to schedule a consultation with. When choosing a surgeon, I believe that it is important that you trust him or her, like them, and have confidence in his/her qualifications. Good luck!
