Tips on how to find the right plastic surgeon for you:

Finding the right plastic surgeon is a matter of trust. In addition to professional qualifications and skills, personal impressions are hugely important.
While there are no general rules for initial online research, several criteria have proved helpful and should be considered:


Beware of false labelling! Only “Specialist for Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery“ or the older title of “Specialist for Plastic Surgery’ are protected designations. Full membership of the German Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (Deutsche Gesellschaft der Plastischen, Rekonstruktiven und Ästhetischen Chirurgen, DGPRÄC) or an equivalent national professional body is a reliable indication. This professional association admits only surgeons who hold the title of Specialist for Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery or the older title of Specialist for Plastic Surgery. Patients looking to pursue the surgical route can use this as a point of orientation. Admission to the Association demands professional training of at least six years and a successful examination before the State Chamber of Physicians (Landesärztekammer). It sets the highest standards in professional qualification and is a guarantee of quality.
This organisation has less than one thousand members. A list of members is available here. Diplomas hanging on the wall can also be misleading – every physician holds various certificates of varying quality.
Be sure to ask your doctor about their precise specialist title.

You alone can decide whether the surgeon in question spends enough time on a personalised consultation. They need to understand the background and your treatment goals. They should outline possible results and draw your attention to the limitations of what can be achieved. This demands a detailed examination based on the professional experience and specialised skills you can expect of a specialist for plastic and aesthetic surgery. Try not to be disappointed if your wishes cannot be achieved or the technology available would not provide a good outcome in your specific case. A “no” in the right place is of great value in preventing harm and is an expression of the greatest integrity and professionalism.
It’s a good idea to have a consultation with several plastic surgeons and to go with your gut feeling as to the best choice.

  • If the surgeon is evasive when asked about their experience with the desired procedure
  • If you are pressured to make an appointment for a surgical procedure and there “just happens” to be an opening the next day
  • If there is insufficient infrastructure for optimal care and after-care
  • If the procedure is described as easy and without risk
  • If a deposit payment is requested during the initial consultation.
  • Following an examination, the surgeon should provide a precise estimate that includes all ancillary costs. A deposit based on the estimated costs is usually required prior to surgery.
