It is very, very, very highly recommended that if you are considering a plastic surgeon, that you enlist the services of a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon (like the ones you can contact by using the form on this page!). A board certified plastic surgeon will be among the best plastic surgeons available since they have undergone vigorous plastic surgery training, and must adhere to the strict guidelines of safety and proficiency under the regulatory body, the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
For a plastic surgeon to be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, they must have graduated from an accredited medical school with a minimum of five years residency experience – at least two of those years must have been specializing in plastic surgery. And finally, the plastic surgeon must pass extensive written and oral examinations before becoming officially board-certified. The American Board of Plastic Surgery was established as an organization to ensure that the high qualities of American plastic surgeons are maintained and continued. The American Board of Plastic Surgery regulates plastic surgery education to make sure that it is of the highest standards, as well as being a regulatory body to protect the safety and interest of patients undergoing cosmetic plastic surgery, and guaranteeing accountability and transparency in the activities of board certified plastic surgeons.
So with your selection of a board certified plastic surgeon for your plastic surgery procedure, you can feel confident that these professionals have the adequate training and skills to do the job with your safety and interests being the foremost priority.
