Your choice of a plastic surgeon may be the most important decision you make regarding plastic surgery. Here are some tips to help you carefully evaluate the plastic surgeon's training, reputation, credentials and experience:
Certifications & Memberships
Your plastic surgeon should be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) which is the only specialty board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties to certify plastic surgeons in the full spectrum of plastic surgery including cosmetic surgery.
He or she should be an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, which requires ABPS certification for membership. This certification assures that the plastic surgeon has been specifically trained in plastic surgery which provides the necessary technical skills and judgment to both determine your suitability for surgery and to select the procedure or technique that will yield the best results.
Your plastic surgeon should have hospital privileges to perform any surgery that is offered to be done in an in-office surgical facility. Hospitals have strict standards for credentialing surgeons to do certain procedures and monitor each surgeon's performance. The Florida Board of Medicine requires each office surgery facility be registered but it should also be properly accredited.
