IS YOUR PLASTIC SURGEON BOARD CERTIFIED?

As a patient, you have to be very careful in seeking out an aesthetic surgeon.  Many practicitioners will falsely title themselves as plastic surgeons or cosmetic surgeons without every having any formal training in their residency or fellowships.  A plastic surgeon must be Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.  The American Board of Plastic Surgery holds all of its members to the very highest standards.  Not only do its members have to pass a written exam, but the members must practice for over one year before they can be board certified.  All of the cases performed in the first year are reviewed and then the candidate must then sit for a very rigourous oral examination over 3 days.  The failure rate for the oral examination for plastic surgery is near 25%.  This is very important for patients because not everyone can become a board certified plastic surgeon.  They have to meet the highest standards in safety, ethics, technique, and skill.  Do your homework, and make sure your provider is a board certified plastic surgeon.  You owe it to yourself to seek out the best trained inviduals who can provide you with safe and reproducible results.
