Why You Should Choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon for Your Cosmetic Procedure

If you are considering a cosmetic procedure, it is very important that you choose your surgeon wisely. There are an increasing number of physicians who are starting to practice plastic surgery. Many of these physicians are not fully trained and certified as plastic surgeons. Such doctors are medically trained, but they do not have the experience and expertise of a board-certified plastic surgeon.

Who Certifies Plastic Surgeons?

The American Board of Plastic Surgery certifies plastic surgeons. After a plastic surgeon goes through about 16 years of post-high school education, they go before the board to become certified. The board conducts both a written examination as well as a two-day oral examination before certification is granted. When you choose a board-certified plastic surgeon, you are guaranteed to be using a doctor who is fully trained, experienced, and generally good at what they do.

What Can Happen

With the increase of physicians practicing plastic surgery, there has also been an increase in adverse effects and outcomes. Board-certified plastic surgeons are better trained and prepared to handle complications with cosmetic procedures. If you use a physician who is not board-certified as a plastic surgeon specifically, they may not have the knowledge they need to handle anything that comes up during the procedure. While there are risks with any surgery, plastic surgeons are better equipped to mitigate these risks.

If you are considering a cosmetic procedure, make sure your surgeon is board-certified. We are board-certified plastic surgeons in Tampa, and can help you reach your goals without fear of what might go wrong. Contact us today for a consultation.

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.

Dr. Mosiello taught me how to live again after having breast cancer. His staff is truly a blessing. He is an amazing artist and a wonderful Doctor and friend.

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.
