San Antonio, Texas plastic surgeon

How to choose the best plastic surgeon in San Antonio, Texas?, A plastic surgery procedure is not just science, but it also involves the natural principles of art and aesthetics. Because their health and appearance is at stake, patients should invest time in finding the best plastic surgeon for their needs.

You need a surgeon who has an established track record of safe and successful procedures, and who has the skills and training to help you achieve your cosmetic goals in a less invasive and targeted manner.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Baumholtz provides dependable and proven plastic surgery and med spa treatments to patients in Shavano Park, San Antonio, Texas, and surrounding communities.

Finding the Right Surgeon: A Brief Checklist

To determine whether a cosmetic surgeon is the right fit for your needs, consider the questions in this checklist:

  • What are the surgeon’s academic credentials, training, certifications, and skills?
  • How many years of plastic and reconstructive surgery training and experience does the surgeon have?
  • Has the surgeon previously performed the specific procedure you are seeking?
  • What surgical or non-surgical techniques the surgeon proposes to use to make your procedure safer, less invasive, and more effective?
  • Will the cosmetic surgeon share with you before and after images and patient testimonials of their past work?

Is the Surgeon Board Certified in Plastic Surgery?

One of the quickest and most reliable ways to short-list or identify the best surgeon would be to find out whether they have a board certification in plastic surgery. Board certified plastic surgeons would have undergone a certain minimum years of training in plastic surgery (not just general surgery).

Only a handful of surgeons are able obtain the prestigious board certification in plastic surgery each year after going through a rigorous selection process. To maintain this certification, plastic surgeons usually invest in best medical practices, embrace cutting-edge surgical techniques and technology, constantly upgrade their skills and education, and adopt contemporary safety protocols.

Artistic Skills and Versatility

Your plastic surgeon should ideally have strong artistic sensibilities in order to create balanced, proportional, and natural looking results in every cosmetic procedure. They should have the versatility to provide multiple treatment options, modify the techniques to suit your figure, and tailor the procedure to make it less invasive yet more effective.

Personalized Care and Attention

You are more likely to achieve better outcomes and a deeper sense of satisfaction when your plastic surgeon and their team provide you individualized care and attention at every stage. Consider whether the surgeon and the staff are willing to answer your questions and concerns in detail and resolve all your doubts. Do they explain the inherent risks and benefits of your treatment options to help you make a concrete choice? Is the pricing transparent and will they provide all cost details upfront?

Personal Rapport Matters

A robust patient-surgeon relationship will make an impact to the final outcomes in almost any surgical or non-surgical treatment. When the relationship is based on trust and open communication, and you can feel a sense of warmth and compassion whenever you meet your surgeon, it will do wonders for your treatment experience.

My tummy tuck journey began about 3 1/2 months ago when I had my 1st office visit with Dr. Baumholtz. Dr. Baumholtz listened to what I wanted had done, he gave me his professional opinion and his recommendations and said “yes we can do it”, never pressured me to move forward with procedure, he told me when your ready you let me know. Dr. Baumholtz is an amazing Plastic Surgeon. I’m exactly 10 weeks post op - tummy tuck today, 3/18/22, I could not had asked for more, my results are amazing and could not be any happier. Dr. Baumholtz and his staff to date have gone above and beyond with my after care, they are always their for you and you are not left alone. Renee works with Dr. Baumholtz, she is very knowledgeable and always has an answer for you. Also, where I had my surgery was at emerge plastic surgery specialty center, awesome nurses and staff, always very attentive to me before and after surgery, facility was amazing.

I couldn’t be any happier with my results!! The entire process was such an amazing & positive experience and one I will never forget. I was treated like a person rather than a number. Everyone, from the staff at Dr. Baumholtz’s office to the staff at the surgical center were so comforting and reassuring. Renee and Katherine at the office have been more than great, and the surgical center staff were so professional and caring. All my questions & concerns were addressed and I felt like part of a family. Thank you to all who were involved on my journey!!
