LOS ANGELES, Oct. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Popular Beverly Hills plastic surgery procedures like rhinoplasty and breast augmentation can be performed safely in the hands of a capable practitioner, but how can you be sure of the caliber of the surgeon you are considering? For help in separating the wheat from the chaff, we sought advice from Dr. Ashkan Ghavami, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon and Assistant Clinical Professor (Voluntary) at the David Geffen UCLA School of Medicine. Among other things, Dr. Ghavami offers quick recovery breast augmentation, buttock shaping with fat transfer, and rhinoplasty in Beverly Hills.

According to Dr. Ghavami, you should carefully examine both the surgeon's scholarly background and his or her level of clinical expertise. Board certification represents the bare minimum, but you should also look beyond this to see if the surgeon also has academic affiliations with prestigious societies or universities, and has proven him or herself as an authority in their field by successfully submitting papers and articles in credible peer-reviewed publications.  

It is also imperative to find out specifics about a surgeon's experience. This is especially important for new techniques that gain popularity in the press, since unqualified (often non-board certified) physicians are most apt to jump on the bandwagon.  For example, Dr. Ghavami has been performing revision rhinoplasty and Fat Transfer to the Buttocks for years, and has been invited to be faculty for numerous conferences to discuss challenges, solutions, and complication management for these procedures.

Dr. Ghavami suggests to narrow down the list further by looking very closely at "before and after" photos on the surgeon's website, as well as testimonials from patients.  These are not fail-proof, but seeing a large amount of photos with multiple views (ie: not just a side view for rhinoplasty that shows a hump shaved down) is a good sign of experience and honesty in representation of the surgeon's work. A truly accomplished surgeon should have no problem providing proof of results.

To learn more about Beverly Hills plastic surgery, you can visit the official websites for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (www.plasticsurgery.org) and the American Board of Plastic Surgery (www.abplsurg.org/).  For specific information about Dr. Ghavami's techniques in Beverly Hills breast augmentation, open and closed rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, ethnic rhinoplasty, and buttock augmentation with fat transfer in Los Angeles, please visit online at www.Ghavamiplasticsurgery.com
