How to Find a Tummy Tuck Doctor in Atlanta?

I'm planning to have tummy tuck (probably it will be mini tummy tuck in my case). However, I don't know how to find the best PS in town (Atlanta). I don't know anyone who has had Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, and I keep searching for blogs and websites with people's comments/experiences but can't find anything. Please help!

There are many excellent plastic surgeons here in the Atlanta metro area. Just like the other surgeons have stated make sure that you select a plastic surgeon that is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. You should schedule a couple of consultations to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure that interests you. If you are a good candidate then it boils down to the surgeon that you feel most comfortable with to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

This should give you a good start. Best wishes.

There are many fine plastic surgeons in the Atlanta area.

First, look for one certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery

Second, look for a member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, this indicates someone who is doing more cosmetic surgery

Third, ask you Ob/Gyn and family docs who they might know.

Then see one, two or three of them and get a feel for their style, experience, office and your comfort level with them.
