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.
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.
