Anytime you undergo surgery, you want to be able to trust your physician. When you want to enhance your body and appearance, you also want to be able to have very frank, intimate discussions with your surgeon, which also requires a great deal of trust. So how do you choose the right plastic surgeon for you? And in a time where lots of doctors, surgeons, dermatologists and even hair dressers are providing BOTOX and other cosmetic procedures, how do you know who to choose?
Actually, it’s fairly easy. It starts by choosing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. When a surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, they’ve been specifically trained in plastic surgery.
First, it’s important to know that any physician can perform cosmetic procedures. But a certified plastic surgeon has completed an addition five years of surgical training after medical school, including a plastic surgery residency program. They have been thoroughly and specifically trained to help achieve your goals for body enhancement.
Board Certified Plastic Surgeons have been trained to perform surgery on both the body and the face. They’ve spent years of training in reconstructive surgery, giving them acute attention to detail, exhaustive knowledge of anatomy and a highly refined sense of aesthetics.
Board Certified Plastic Surgeons have also passed rigorous examinations and fulfilled additional requirements of the board. Continuing education is also required in order to maintain their status, so they engage in lifelong learning about their specialty.
When a surgeon decides to obtain Board Certification, they’ve committed to the highest standards of patient care and safety. That gives patients extreme peace of mind.
