Choosing a plastic surgeon can be a daunting task, especially with the influx of medical professionals claiming to be cosmetic surgeons. It is important to know all the facts prior to choosing a plastic surgeon, primarily for your own safety. You should consider a number of factors, including a doctor’s education and training, previous procedure results, and safety practices, as well as the surgeon’s interpersonal skills and communication during your face-to-face consultation. The most important credential your plastic surgeon must have is a Board Certification, specifically by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons.
Earning this certification assures you that this surgeon has successfully completed an approved education program and passed an extremely rigorous examination. It should put a patient at ease that this surgeon has been approved nationally based on their educational accomplishments, knowledge base, experience, safety protocols and skills to provide the country’s highest quality of patient care in plastic surgery.
