Before Your Consultation

Within 25 miles of Baltimore there are nearly 40 plastic surgeons. With so many choices, one of the best ways to narrow down your search is to create a list of qualifications that must be met before scheduling a consultation. Here are some qualifications suggested by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons®, of which Dr. Sinno is a member. The plastic surgeon you select should:

  • Have at least 6 years of training and experience in surgery, with 3 years specifically in plastic surgery
  • Be certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery
  • Be trained and experienced in all plastic surgery procedures, including breast, body, face, and reconstruction
  • Be peer reviewed for safety and ethical standards prior to attaining the honor of active membership in the ASPS
  • Only operate in accredited surgical facilities

At Your Consultation

A consultation is an excellent opportunity to learn more about plastic surgeons, their offices, and the way they run their practices. During your consultation, the plastic surgeon should:

  • Answer all your questions thoroughly, in a way that you can understand
  • Ask you questions about why you are interested in a cosmetic procedure
  • Offer alternative treatments or procedures, if appropriate, without pressuring you to consider unneeded options
  • Outline in clear language the risks of the treatment or procedure you are considering
  • Explain both the possibilities and limitations of what the procedure can accomplish
  • Leave the final decision to you
