Expertise, Training & Certification

Most of the plastic surgery horror stories you hear about are executed by unqualified, uncertified persons who are performing plastic surgeries illegally. In the United States, all plastic surgeons must be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This ensures you, the patient, that your surgeon not only has the training and education required to perform plastic surgeries, but also understands the safety requirements involved. You can also check out a plastic surgeon’s reputation within the medical community by ensuring there are no complaints filed against them such as with the Better Business Bureau. Another great way to check out a plastic surgeon’s credentials is to see what associations they are involved in, if they speak frequently to other surgeons, and the like. Keeping up with the latest in technological advances is important as well. Our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Warren Schutte, has years of experience and has an excellent reputation amongst the Northern Colorado community. He also is a member of the Colorado Medical Society, the Larimer County Medical Society, and the American Medical Association, among other professional societies.

Plastic surgery is a broad field, as you can imagine when you are correcting areas on the entire human body. Some plastic surgeons specialize in only certain procedures, while others are more broad. Also, some plastic surgeons are more well-known for a certain cosmetic procedure over others, meaning they perform certain ones on a regular basis. When looking for a plastic surgeon, find out how long they have been practicing and how often they perform the certain cosmetic procedure you are looking for. Plastic surgery is definitely part art, and you want one who has lots of practice under their belt. Dr. Warren Schutte has years of practice and would love to help you.

A reputation speaks volume about a board certified plastic surgeon. Thus, if you know others who have experience with a particular plastic surgeon, or better yet, has had the same procedure, who can speak to the surgeon, this is the best type of result you can ask for. You can read reviews of a plastic surgeon online and google to see if there are any negative reviews. With plastic surgery, odds are, if there are any glaring red flags, a quick internet search will reveal them. Dr. Warren Schutte has an excellent reputation, and we take care of our patients to the utmost, ensuring their needs are met and that they are happy with their results.

Comfort Level

There are many qualified board certified plastic surgeons in your area who can perform your plastic surgery. Thus, you’ll want to schedule a free consultation with several before you make your final decision. You may want to consider gender as well. You want to be sure that you are extremely comfortable with this person. After all, plastic surgery is usually extremely personal, and you want to be 100% candid with your plastic surgeon (and them with you). You’ll want to evaluate how communicative your plastic surgeon and staff are. Do they answer your phone calls and return phone calls promptly? Do they offer you personal solutions? Are they engaged with you during the consultation? The last thing you want is to be treated as a number. If you have any type of gut feeling during your initial consultation, you’ll probably want to keep looking.
