Why Should I Choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon?

When it comes to enhancing your appearance, confidence, and quality of life, we know you want the most experienced plastic surgery team by your side during the process. This means enlisting a board-certified plastic surgeon to perform your procedure, which is considered the highest level of training a healthcare professional can attain in aesthetic plastic surgery.

When the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) awards a doctor accreditation, this means he or she has completed rigorous training requirements related to written examinations, clinical experience, and continuing education. Board certification also must be renewed every ten years to ensure each plastic surgeon is staying abreast of the latest advances in plastic surgery. While being board-certified isn’t required to perform cosmetic procedures, earning this credential often indicates a plastic surgeon’s commitment and drive to providing the best outcomes in aesthetic surgery. This dedication, unparalleled training, and quality of care is what you deserve in your treatment, whether you’re interested in a simple procedure like liposuction or a fully fledged Mommy Makeover.
