Always Check for Board Certification!
How important is Board Certification?
It is critical!
You should never go into any doctor blind, you should always do your research especially when it concerns your health and beauty. Because plastic surgery is an elective procedure and one that deals with your looks, it's easy for people to be timid and not ask around when doing research.
As reported by People and Fox News, Priscilla Presley released a statement in which she tells the story of how she was a victim of a fake plastic surgeon. Not only was he not Board Certified, he wasn't even a real doctor and he was using injectables that were unapproved by the FDA.
Board Certification is important not only because is states the obvious that the surgeon in question is in fact a real surgeon so you would never find yourself questioning whether or not he's set up to practice, it also proves that the surgeon has dedicated himself to a standard of quality care and excellence.
