If you're looking now into having cosmetic or plastic surgery
, the biggest obstacle for you to make a decision is most likely financial. Fees for various procedures depend on the extent of work involved, the time required, and whether or not any special instruments or tools are necessary.
You could finance procedures by using credit cards or by taking plastic surgery loan. Usually, it is easier to qualify for plastic surgery loans than for credit cards. Also, credit cards most likely will get you much smaller amounts.

When researching their breast augmentation options
, most patients look up surgeon reviews to get an idea of how reputable a surgeon is and how good their work is.
There are several review sites, some better than others.
RealSelf.com is probably the best one as it takes the effort to verify the authenticity of reviews. You don’t get an angry patient staining a doctor’s reputation because of they are simply unsatisfied with some aspect of their care. At the same time reviews are no spammed with fake positive reviews trying to artificially raise a rating for a physician. All doctors on this site had to provide documentation of their specialty certification, so if you ask a question on this site, you know you’re getting an expert answer, as well.
RateMDs.com is another good site where patients are able to post reviews describing their experiences. RateMDs seems to use an automated algorithm that likes to erase positive reviews claiming they are duplicate, while never erasing duplicate negative reviews. Overall in our experience they seem to be a reasonable site to consult.
There are several other places where you can look up reviews. Google’s own Google+ allows for reviews. Yelp is another one. These two sites, however, are not geared towards Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeons and you probably won’t find a lot of useful informations. CanadaBA is a site dedicated to breast augmentation and may be another good source of reviews on breast augmentation specialists
in the Toronto area.
Word of mouth
Word of mouth referrals are ones most patients trust the most. They are a great way to zero in on a few doctors and they you should do your research. While we love word of mouth referrals, remember that one happy patient does not mean the doctor is the best. We recommend looking at RealSelf.com to see what more than one patient have to say.
Oh, one more thing…. if you would like to save time and go straight to the best breast augmentation surgeon in Toronto, we invite you to come and visit our clinic (and yes, we admit we may be a little biased! ;-) )
