Plastic surgeons are experts in both facial and body procedures. Board certified plastic surgeons complete a minimum of 5 years of surgical training following medical school, including a plastic surgery residency program. In-depth training encompasses surgical procedures of the face and the entire body.

Plastic surgeons are trained to prevent and, if necessary, handle emergencies. A comprehensive education, including a sound foundation in anatomy and physiology, provides plastic surgeons with an understanding of all body systems, which is vitally important to patient safety. Plastic surgeons’ training develops technical skill and aesthetic judgment, and plastic surgeons have access to a wide range of potential treatments.

But state laws permit any licensed physician to call him or herself a “plastic” or “cosmetic” surgeon even if he or she has not been trained as a plastic surgeon or has had no surgical training at all. This makes the careful selection of a doctor extremely important for prospective patients.

For the best results and safest care possible, always choose a board certified plastic surgeon.
