Finding a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon


I always recommend that people who are considering plastic surgery perform the necessary research beforehand. There are so many factors that go into picking the right plastic surgeon for you; you can’t be too careful. Making sure that your surgeon is board-certified is a must.

What do I mean by “board-certified?” I’m referring specifically to the America Society of Plastic Surgeons, or ASPS. The ASPS is composed of 7,000+ accredited physicians, and represents 94 percent of all plastic surgeons in the United States. The purpose of the ASPS is to assure high standards of training, ethics, physician practice and research in plastic surgery. By choosing an ASPS board-certified surgeon, you are ensuring that you are in safe hands.
