Why Choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon?
Before you put your trust in the hands of a surgeon, you must determine what their qualifications are. This is especially important when you are considering elective cosmetic surgery. Board-certification is a rigorous process that requires accredited training, an arduous written examination, a period of practice and case collection, and a challenging oral examination. Maintenance of certification over time requires ongoing education, assessment, and periodic recertification examinations. Be wary of practitioners who claim to be certified by a board that is not the American Board of Plastic Surgery. The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery does not have the same rigorous standards set by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons. A board-certified plastic surgeon has the required training and expertise to treat you in a comprehensive, safe, and effective manner. Non board-certified providers of cosmetic services are often limited in what they can offer. When you have a hammer, the world is full of nails. If you have a complete toolbox, then you have the ability to fix things correctly. Don’t get what you paid for – get what you deserve and seek a board-certified plastic surgeon!
