Let’s Start at The Beginning.
There’s something about your face or body that’s been bothering you. Something you’d like to change. You’ve been considering plastic surgery, but finding the best plastic surgeon in Denver to do the procedure can be not just frustrating, but kind of scary when you realize how much there is to consider with the choice you ultimately make. That choice will be a choice you live with for years, if not your entire life. A successful procedure will make you feel more like yourself and give you greater confidence for years to come. On the other hand, ending up in the hands of an inexperienced surgeon increases your chances of having poor results, which can lead to additional costs, time, and yes, even heartache.
No Thank You.
Here’s the Big Question…
You want the best plastic surgeon in Denver…no, you demand it… but how do go about finding them? The process can be overwhelming. There are so many choices. So many claims. You feel lost. You’re left with endless questions.
Let Us Make It Easier for You.
The key to choosing the best plastic surgeon, is choosing a plastic surgeon who’s board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Period. The ABPS’s website has an online database and a search engine that lets you look up whether or not the doctor you’re considering is board-certified for plastic surgery. The ABPS’s membership prerequisites are strict and include training and board certification requirements, so all members are vetted to perform both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.
Proceed with Caution.
Alas, the government does not require a surgeon to be specifically trained in the procedures they offer. The problem with plastic surgery is that you have a lot of other specialists – primary care physicians, podiatrists, dermatologists, even gynecologists, engaging in plastic surgical procedures after having taken a weekend course to learn how to do a breast augmentation, for example. These practitioners then hang out a shingle and start operating on people, touting their experience and expertise, when it is really a case of jumping on the cosmetic surgery bandwagon in pursuit of greater profits.
“You’re Kidding?” We Wish.
And just because some may claim they’re board certified on their website, doesn’t certify the validity of the claim. As we’ve said, check it out on the ABPS website. And just because someone is board certified, doesn’t ensure they’re the best. Finding the best plastic surgeon takes some more work. (If it seems like a lot, remember, there’s a lot riding on it).
So Where Do You Go from There?
You want the best plastic surgeon in Denver?
Do some due diligence.
Ask around. Look around. Get references. Personal recommendations are important. Ask friends for referrals if they have gotten a similar procedure. Get opinions from your family doctor and other doctor acquaintances. (You want to do this right, right?) Narrow it down to a few who have extensive experience in the procedure you’re considering. Some plastic surgeons specialize in breast surgery, for example. And do little else. Not what you’re looking for if you’re considering a facelift.
Make Multiple Consultations. Come Prepared.
Once you meet with a potential plastic surgeon, it’s smart to go into the appointment armed with a list of questions to ask the surgeon while you’re face-to-face. Take this very seriously, treating every consultation and interview like a job interview. Only you’re the interviewer. Details. You want the best plastic surgeon? You want details.
So Just What Questions Should You Be Asking, You Ask?
Here’s a checklist that could help:
- Does the surgeon have hospital privileges? (Like asking about being board certified, this is also a biggie.)
- How many years of experience do they have?
- Does the surgeon have experience in the procedure you are considering?
- How many times have they performed this procedure?
- Do the surgeon’s results for the procedure you want appeal to you personally? Time to ask to see photos. Not just all photos, but those showing results on patients with similar concerns who look like you. Not every patient is the same.
- Do I feel like I can trust this surgeon to recommend what’s safe and right for me?
- Do I feel comfortable disclosing my full medical history to this surgeon?
- Will I receive written post-op instructions?
- Do I like spending time with this surgeon?
- Do I feel comfortable asking the surgeon any questions I might have throughout the process?
- Does this surgeon stay current with advanced techniques?
- Do I get helpful materials that fully prepare me for the risks and realities of surgery and recovery?
- Is follow-up care after the surgery included?
- Don’t be afraid to take notes.

Dr. Narsete is Phenomenal, honest, direct and sweet! I felt very confident and comfortable with him. Being new to the Denver area I have a went to six surgeons and I found him to be the most honest and artistic and the work I wanted to do to my face. The face is focal point and it needs an artistic and a precise hand to do the work! He took the time to go over the procedure and pictures answered all my many questions about the procedure itself delete the surgery and recovery time.
Dr. Narsete is a maestro with the scalpel! I am extremely pleased with the nipple reduction and scar revision surgery he performed. He understood what I was looking to achieve and was able to get the look I desire. His staff was fabulous and the entire process from consultation to post-op care was very well handled. I would recommend this surgeon to anyone else. Thank you again!
