Why Choose a Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon?
If you are electing to have any surgery performed on your face, head, or neck, then choosing a board-certified facial plastic surgeon is of the utmost importance. A board-certified facial plastic surgeon has undergone rigorous training and has completed residencies in the highly specialized field of facial plastic surgery. This is considered the gold standard certification and represents a commitment to patient care and continued learning, along with integrity and honesty in professional practice.
A board-certified facial plastic surgeon has proven that they excel in the field of facial plastic surgery. Choosing a surgeon that you trust and feel comfortable with is of equal importance as recognizing their certification. When researching surgeons, choose to visit only those that are board-certified in the specific specialty you need.
The importance of board certification
When considering who you want to perform surgery on your face, especially plastic surgery, it is important to recognize the validity of this certification and what it represents. Many doctors are board-certified but may offer to perform procedures that lie outside of their certification area. By choosing a board-certified facial plastic surgeon for facial plastic surgery, you are choosing a surgeon with years of experience and proven excellence when delivering results in that specialty.
The board-certification process
Board-certification takes years of training and the completion of a residency in your specialty, as well as being in practice for at least one year in order to apply for certification. The application requires other certified surgeons in your specialty to give references as well. Once everything that has been submitted has been verified, then certification may be granted. Some boards require examinations as well, and most require that the surgeon has to re-apply after a certain amount of time and show that they have been engaged in continuing learning.
Will I save money overall?
You will save both money and time by choosing a board-certified facial plastic surgeon for your cosmetic or reconstructive facial surgery. By having your procedure performed by a board-certified facial plastic surgeon you are ensuring a smooth, practiced, and minimally invasive surgery. This means less recovery time, less risk of complications, and a significantly reduced likelihood of requiring revision surgery.
