Why It Is Important to Choose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Why It Is Important to Choose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Why It Is Important to Choose a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

When you decide to have a cosmetic surgical procedure done, you want to know that you are going to get the results you are looking for without complications or botched procedures. There is a growing trend for physicians who are not board certified plastic surgeons performing cosmetic procedures. There are also some plastic surgeons who are trained but not board certified.  Read below why it is important to choose a board certified surgeon.

Cosmetic Surgery Is Still Surgery

Although cosmetic surgery is optional and not as invasive as many other medically necessary surgeries, it is still surgery. Any surgery carries with it the potential for complications or emergencies during the surgical procedure. A board certified plastic surgeon is guaranteed to understand the nuances of surgery, including how to avoid complications and handle emergencies.

Trained in Both Face and Body Procedures

A board certified plastic surgeon is trained in both face and body procedures, including how to prevent and cope with complications that can arise during surgery. They are not only trained in surgical procedures, they are also trained in aesthetics and how to make the necessary incisions while leaving minimal scarring.

Successful Surgeries

For a successful surgery, it is important that your surgeon has the training and experience necessary. Board certified plastic surgeons are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. To be certified, they must have at least five years of surgical training, including a residency in plastic surgery. They must also pass comprehensive written and oral exams proving their knowledge, experience, and competency.. In addition, they must be recertified every 10 years.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
