Why Choose an ABPS Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?
The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) is the only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. It follows rigorous standards of selection for awarding certification. Patients who choose an ABPS certified plastic surgeon are assured that the surgeon would have undergone a minimum of three to five years of medical training, including at least two years exclusively dedicated to training in plastic and cosmetic surgery.
ABPS board-certified plastic surgeons will typically pursue ongoing training to remain updated with the latest innovations in the field, adopt cutting surgical techniques and technology, adhere to the best medical practices and standards, and follow the latest safety protocols to provide the safest and most effective solutions to their patients.
The surgeon should ideally have operating privileges at a local hospital or an accredited surgery center. Hospitals perform detailed background checks before awarding privileges.
Any plastic surgery procedure is a personal journey for the patient. They should preferably select a surgeon with whom they can strike a good rapport, and who can empathize with their condition. The surgeon should be accessible to the patient during all their visits to their office with regard to the procedure, and should be able to address their concerns at every step.
Combining Art and Science
To create aesthetically attractive yet safe results in a cosmetic procedure, the surgeon should combine the principles of both science and art. A balanced approach to the procedure will allow the surgeon to create results that are healthy, sustainable, natural looking, and at the same time, physically appealing for the patient.
