Why Choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon?

Board certification is an exceptional way to know whether a surgeon is extensively trained and knowledgeable about the procedures you’re interested in. The American Board of Plastic Surgery requires members to go through a rigorous examination and evaluation process to join, and once certified, surgeons must complete continuing education courses to maintain their certification. Additionally, the prestigious organization is dedicated to instilling the highest levels of ethics and care at every stage of treatment. It is important to do your research and make sure that you and your surgeon communicate as ideally as possible; this is a relationship that will continue over your lifetime.
