Choosing a Cosmetic Surgeon
Choosing a cosmetic surgeon does not have to be hard for most guys. And,
before I go on, let me mention that I know some guys are absolutely opposed to
cosmetic procedures of any sort. It may seem unnatural to some and unmanly
Remember: exercise and losing weight will make your
bod look twenty years younger after just a few months, but to drop a couple of
decades off your face may take a little help after all the hard livin' you've

For those of you who agree but haven't gone yet, it may very well be because you
didn't know how to get started.
Below I make the job of picking a cosmetic surgeon much easier. The reason
is that you are probably NOT going to ever even see the plastic surgeon, so you
don't have to obsess over his credentials.
That's right - what you need is a new face and you can do that without ever
seeing a cosmetic surgeon. You can do that by dealing with his (very
likely) female front office staff, while he is performing things like neck and face lifts and lipos -
which hopefully you do not need. Again, most guys just need some wrinkle
reduction and filler for years of excessive sun exposure, free radical damage

Assuming that is the case, then below is what you need to check:
1. Find a doctor that's been a plastic surgeon for quite awhile, at least
five years. Make sure he is certified - this only applies to the U.S. - by
the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
2. Find a location that is far enough away from your house that you don't
have to worry about anonymity and yet close enough to where it you'll want to go
back. I'll explain why below.
3. Ask questions about the front office staff. Very often a plastic
surgeon will have a person that handles injections, i.e. Botox/Dysport and
Fillers, and another person that handles things like Thermage, peels and easy
microdermabrasions. These are the people that you want to ask about:
you want to deal with someone who has years of experience. It is these people
who can decades off of your face for a relatively cheap price, so treat them
right and learn how to deal with them.
4. Inquire as to the cost of Botox even if you don't want Botox. Ask
them the cost per unit and total number of units to do the crows feet around
your eyes. The cost per unit should be around $10-$11 and it should take
20-25 units. In other words, to do both eyes should be in the $200-$300 range.
(You'll have to go back with Botox every three to four months, so you want to
make sure their costs are reasonable.)
5. Ask about the cost of Retin-A. This is one of your most important
consideration in my opinion. The office can sell a name brand Retin-A to you for
$100 or they can compound it themselves and sell it to you for around $30 (in a
small tube). One small tube, if refrigerated, will last you for 2-3 months and
can do more than anything else to de-age your face. However, you want to
make that they have your best interests in mind and aren't trying nickel and
dime you by charging the highests prices for even a cheap molecule like Retin-A.
(See my link on The Wonders of Retin-A for more details.)
Again, these front office staff can give you much younger look face in a matter
of weeks in privacy and secrecy for around a $1,000 to $3,000, depending of if
you want Botox, fillers and/or Retin-A.

with some Hollywood cosmetic surgery. As you can see, it works just
