Choosing a plastic surgeon
You have decided to improve your appearance either through surgery or one of the many new non-surgical treatments available. Now the real work begins, and one of the most important decisions you’ll make on your cosmetic surgery journey. Finding the best plastic surgeon in Los Angeles is a task that can create far more stress than deciding to have the procedure in the first place.
Unless you are fortunate to have a firm recommendation from a friend or family member, you will have to sift through the overabundance of information that floods every resource you will likely use in your search. So how does one choose a stellar cosmetic surgeon? One who produces beautiful, natural results on a routine basis?
Los Angeles is fortunate to have attracted among the best plastic surgeons anywhere in the world. The downside to that is that it can be very difficult to ignore the hype and find the exact right plastic surgeon for your needs.
All surgeons are not skilled in plastic surgery techniques
All surgeons have to pass their residency requirements to be able to legally perform general surgery. Upon meeting the requirements set by the state licensing board, they are given a license and can then legally perform almost any surgical procedure from taking out a child’s tonsils to doing a skin graft on a burn victim. They can also legally perform breast augmentation or any number of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures.
Many people don’t realize that a corporation advertising a sale price on cosmetic surgery procedures may be using a licensed surgeon who has only taken a weekend course on the procedure. Additionally, surgeons who specialize in one field such as an oral surgeon can easily offer to perform a facelift or a nose job. The question is who would you choose to perform your facelift: a board certified plastic surgeon or a surgeon with a weekend course in the latest facelift technique?
Board certification is the benchmark for outstanding surgeons
Board certification matters when choosing a plastic surgeon. It is voluntary training and certification that goes beyond licensing requirements. Board certification demonstrates a higher level of commitment to the surgical specialty since obtaining board certification is very rigorous and time consuming.
