One of the most important decisions you will make when considering plastic surgery is choosing the right surgeon. You want someone you can trust who has the experience and skill set to guide you in the right direction and deliver the results you want.
Whether you’re thinking about a cosmetic or reconstructive procedure, here are a few tips to get you on your way to finding the ideal surgeon for your aesthetic needs:
1. Choose a plastic surgeon who is board certified.
First and foremost, you want to make sure your plastic surgeon is held to the highest standards of education, training, safety and ethics. Only a plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties, an organization created to protect patients. At CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Anthony Deboni and Dr. Gregory Baum, take pride in being American Board of Plastic Surgery diplomates and American Society of Plastic Surgeons members.
2. Confirm their experience aligns with the procedures you want.
In addition to having substantial experience in the field, you want your plastic surgeon to have performed procedures you’re considering or have treated patients with similar conditions. The various areas of plastic surgery require different skills, so whether you’re looking to get a facelift or breast augmentation, you’ll want to know your surgeon has expertise operating in that area. With years of surgical experience in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, breasts and body, Drs. Baum and Deboni are well-versed in a variety of modern cosmetic techniques. At CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, we offer a wide selection of cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries, including liposuction, tummy tuck, breast reduction, eyelid surgery, facelift and scar revisions.
3. Get to know their aesthetic sense by viewing their before and after photos.
Look carefully at your surgeon’s work to make sure it matches your expectations. One way you can do this is by viewing their before and after photos. Pay attention to consistency as well. Do all the patients who underwent the same treatment have similar results that align with your goals? After all, plastic surgery is an art form. Our dynamic board-certified plastic surgeons at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery are known for delivering flattering, natural-looking improvements.

4. Find someone you trust and feel comfortable with.
Just like with any doctor, when you find someone that you have ease of communication with, you feel more confident about your treatment. The right surgeon will be open to listening to your concerns and help guide you through the pre- and post-procedure process with honesty and realistic expectations. Once you find a plastic surgeon you can trust, everything else falls into place. The women and men who visit Drs. Deboni and Baum know this to be true. With their surgical skill combined with their artistic eye, our patients trust our surgeons to not only deliver outstanding results, but also a satisfying patient experience.
