Choosing a Plastic Surgeon


When choosing a plastic surgeon, it is important to understand what the specific qualifications are for a plastic surgeon. Be sure to ask these questions to determine if the plastic surgeon is qualified: 

  • Is the surgeon board-certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery?
  • Does the surgeon have hospital privileges to perform this procedure?
  • Is the surgical facility which this surgeon operates at accredited?
  • How many procedures has the surgeon performed?
