3 Ways to Find the Best Plastic Surgeon
1. Analyze their board certification.
Most people know that your plastic surgeon should be board certified – but do you know what board certification is the one you should be looking out for?
While most plastic surgeons will say that they’re board-certified, you should look for surgeons who have certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). This Board is the only body that’s recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Being certified by ABPS means that the plastic surgeon has been peer-reviewed and has demonstrated an exceptionally high standard of patient care.
2. Emphasize portfolio photos.
The plastic surgeon’s portfolio photos should be a leading factor for you in determining your best plastic surgeon. Carefully review both the online photo gallery and the physical portfolio that your plastic surgeon has in his or her office. Pay attention to how the results look. Are they natural and proportional to the patient’s body? Or do they look artificial, like it’s obvious that the patient has had work done?
