The Importance of Choosing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

The Importance of Choosing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Your health is one of your most important assets. This is why it’s so important to choose a plastic surgeon who is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, Inc. (ABPS). They have the talent and credentials necessary to successfully perform your surgery. Upon graduating from an accredited medical school, an aspiring ABPS certified plastic surgeon must complete 6 years of residency as a surgeon. Two of these years must be dedicated entirely to the nuances of plastic surgery. This training is extremely important to the health and safety of patients, as well as to the cosmetic result of the surgery itself.

Plastic surgery is a highly specialized field, and it takes a certified doctor to give you the proper results in the safest way possible. Some patients make the dangerous decision of choosing non-certified surgeons who charge less for their services. However, there’s a reason why their rates are so low. These non-certified plastic surgeons are not qualified to perform your surgery, which puts your safety and health at great risk. This is why it’s also dangerous for patients to seek plastic surgery help from general M.D.s and surgeons. They are a poor substitute for the specialized services offered by a certified plastic surgeon.

Board certified plastic surgeons are experts in the specialized fields of body and face procedures.

They know exactly what to do if complications arise during a procedure, and how to save your life in an emergency. Unlike general surgeons or unqualified plastic surgeons, a board certified plastic surgeon also has an eye for aesthetics. They have the skill and talent in order to meticulously sculpt the face or body for a beautiful result. Board certified plastic surgeons are also able to perform more complex procedures and a wider range of treatments, due to their training and hospital privileges.
