The highest authority in plastic surgery is the "American Board of Plastic Surgery".  Your surgeon needs to be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.  Usually this also means Fellowship of the American College of Surgery, membership in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), and possibly membership in the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), otherwise known as the Aesthetic Society.  These are the credentials you should be looking for.  In addition it would be best to know some people who have been treated by your surgeon, to get a first-hand experience.  These are what you need to look for, and there is no such thing as "ELITE" credentials per se!  You can find a complete list of what to look for in your plastic surgeon by visiting the ASPS web site below.

You should find a board certified plastic surgeon who is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and specializes in these procedures. Your surgeon should do at least 6 BBLS per week. You should never choose a surgeon who just "dabbles" in these surgeries. It takes a great deal of experience to refine the technique that will give you excellent and safe results. Ask your surgeon how many of these they do per week/month/year, and also look to see at least a dozen before and after photos. Any surgeon that cannot meet these criteria shuld not be considered Elite.

To find a PS with Elite credentials in performing the BBL, you should start with Board Certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery; do not settle for any other Board certification. Beyond that you should make certain the PS has a concentration in performing the BBL and has many years of experience. You should look at before and after photos both in terms of the results as well as the number of photos shown. In the end you should choose the surgeon whom you are most comfortable with. Good luck!

Choosing your plastic surgeon

When considering cosmetic surgery, there is nothing more important than choosing the right cosmetic surgeon.

Any physician can call himself/herself a cosmetic surgeon. Aboard Certified Plastic surgeon, by The American Board Of Plastic Surgery is the only recognized board certifying plastic and cosmetic surgeons. Boar certified Plastic Surgeons are dedicated to cosmetic surgery including Breast enhancement, body contouring Facial rejuvenation. They are trained in cosmetic procedures of the face and body that help you look natural and younger. Plastic surgeons adhere to the highest code of ethics. Do not assume that doctors who claim to be “board certified” have the same training. Board certified plastic surgeons have at least 2-3 year of plastic surgery training.

Your cosmetic surgery should be done in an accredited facility; the surgeon should have privileges to do these same procedures in a hospital facility.

Your board certified plastic surgeon should spend the time to answer all your questions. Welcomes questions about the procedure, and seeks the input of the patient in the decision making process.

During the consultation come with a list of questions that should be answered thoroughly. Discuss risks and complications and how these complications are handled.

Ask and be thoroughly informed about finances, including financial obligations for revision surgery and cost.

Ask who will do the preoperative and post operative care and follow up. It is the plastic surgeon’s responsibility to do so.
