You can choose cosmetic surgery to be either elective, or to be reconstructive. If this is the case for you or if it has to be done because of a medical condition, then you need to find an experienced surgeon to perform your surgery. This will ensure that the outcome you want will be achieved. Get the facts!
If you are looking for a cosmetic surgeon to perform your surgery, look at their qualifications, their experience and whether they have received certification in plastic surgery.
Even if a surgeon has not been trained in plastic and reconstructive surgeries, they can still perform the procedure. It is profitable to run surgery clinics even if the surgeons have no qualifications or only a few. It is important to verify the qualification of the surgeon you wish to hire to be certain that your safety and well-being will not be compromised.
The plastic surgeon must have graduated from a recognized institution. Plastic surgery must be their specialty, not general surgery. To be a plastic surgeon, you must have had extensive hands-on training and completed a plastic surgery residency. Some plastic surgeons choose to focus on reconstructive or cosmetic surgery. They are all highly-qualified surgeons.
Licenses are the minimum requirements for plastic surgery. Check for ASPS-member surgeons who are certified from the American Board of Plastic Surgery. ASPS plastic surgeons must be ASPS member. They have to have completed at least six-years of formal training, including surgical practice in a medical training institute. In addition, they need three more years’ professional experience. The society expects its members to uphold the professional and moral standards of their organization. If you find someone certified, it will give the assurance that they have been checked by professionals and are up-to-date on new practices.
