NEW YORK, July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Whatever your reason may be to have plastic surgery, it is not a decision to be taken lightly. In choosing a plastic surgeon to perform very risky operations, one should be educated in the background of the chosen physician. Dr. Kevin Ciresi of Kent Medical Center will advise you on the proper way to choose your surgeon.

The first thing that Dr. Kevin Ciresi will tell you is to not be afraid to ask questions. Asking the right questions will promise you the best treatment, and therefore the best outcome. The first question that Dr. Kevin Ciresi will have you ask is: "Are you board certified, and with which board?"

You want to make sure that your surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Dr. Kevin Ciresi is a board certified plastic surgeon, certified by the ABPS and also by the American Board of Surgery. Dr. Kevin Ciresi is also affiliated with the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons and the California Society of Plastic Surgery.  Once you find out the proper qualifications for your chosen surgeon, Dr. Kevin Ciresi will tell you to use personal references through friends and family. This will give you another great insight into the plastic surgeon's reputation throughout his or her community.

The second question that Dr. Kevin Ciresi will have you ask is what happens in case of an emergency. Your plastic surgeon should always have a backup plan in case an emergency arises. A board certified plastic surgeon will tell his or her patients about the risks and complications that may occur during surgery. They will make you aware of what happens when they occur. Knowing this type of information requires educating yourself about your surgeon's qualifications. Dr. Kevin Ciresi will advise you that your surgeon should have a good standing with the emergency hospital, or hospitals, that are nearest to the medical facility where the surgery is taking place. You can check the surgeon's credentials with the alternative hospital or hospitals. It is also important to make sure that the medical facility where the surgeon operates is accredited.

Lastly, Dr. Kevin Ciresi will have you view before and after pictures of patients that were operated on by the chosen surgeon. Every doctor should be proud of his or her work. "I am a caring physician. I do not cut corners and am there for patients through the entire process," Dr. Kevin Ciresi is quoted as saying, concerning the quality of work that he dedicates to his patients. Plastic surgeons want to prove to you that they are the best. They want to prove that you are the most important person to them, from the moment you meet with them for a consultation, until you leave their office at your six week check-up.
