Though liposuction is cosmetic surgery and not a medical necessity, all surgeries are serious and potentially problematic. For this reason, it is extremely important that you do your homework before deciding on a surgeon to perform your liposuction. Some people are on such a budget that they go directly for the surgeons that cost the least. But without proper research, you could end up paying more in the long run by needing another surgeon to fix the mistakes your cheaper one made. Remember that you can�t undo liposuction, so you really want to make sure that you find the best surgeon. There are a few basic questions you should ask potential surgeons to help choose one. But before you start there, you may want to attain referrals from others. If you don't know anyone who has had the procedure, ask potential surgeons� offices to give you the names of some satisfied patients who are willing to give testimonials (these people will have already given the office permission to release their names and information for this purpose). The first thing you want to find out about is certification. Is this surgeon Board Certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons? Does the surgeon have specific training in liposuction? Some cosmetic surgeons perform the procedure without actually being trained specifically in liposuction. You might also ask about Advanced Cardiac Life Support training, which is important for handling any possible cardiac emergencies during or after procedures. Discuss with potential surgeons the types of liposuction available. There are several different procedures, each with their own pros and cons. Assess if the surgeon has any preferences and why that may be. Ask what is involved in each of these procedures and what risks may be associated with each. Get a good idea of what type of results you can expect from your liposuction. Make sure that the surgeon is more concerned with safety and quality, rather than promising to make you into a new person. What is the surgeon�s policy on touch-ups? If the surgery doesn�t turn out quite right, will you have the opportunity to have it fixed for free? Recovery time from liposuction is crucial, especially if you are taking time off of work. Discuss the estimated recovery time for your procedure and what to expect during that time. For those looking for a board certified plastic surgeon in their area, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons has a surgeon locator on their website at

It is stated that many doctors perform liposuction and should not be performing these surgeries. If one is wanting to have liposuction surgery the doctors who are qualified to do so are board certified Plastic Surgeons who have been properly trained for the procedure. That being said it does not appear that there are stipulations in place for qualifications if other doctors can perform the surgery.
