Why Choose A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
It is always important to work with a plastic surgeon that is board certified. In order for a plastic surgeon to become board certified, they have to go through a long, demanding process. It is not something that can be purchased. It is not a 6-month long process; it is a process that takes years. That is why there are so many more plastic surgeons that are not board certified. Plastic Surgeon’s willing to invest that amount of time, studying and studying more, and on top of that passing the tests, and then following the comprehensive rules set forward, in our opinion, deserve the respect that brings.

2.The facility where your surgery will be performed conforms to strict safety standards established by the Joint Commission of Hospital Organizations. Hospitals take up to a year preparing to pass this strict, on site inspection, geared to ensure patient safety.
3. Your surgeon is informed of any drugs you are taking and your full medical history, especially if you have had any circulation disorders, heart or lung ailments or problems with blood clots;
4. The surgical facility will use skilled, licensed personnel to administer and monitor your anesthesia and your recovery immediately following the procedure;
5. Extra safety measures are taken if you are having a more extensive procedure. Consult with your Surgeon if you have any concerns.
