How to Choose Your Plastic Surgeon : TV, Radio, Snapchat, or Instagram? - The Answer Will Surprise You
By: Dr. Kenneth Benjamin Hughes, MD
Selecting a plastic surgeon should focus on evaluating the probability that the surgeon will get the result that you want to obtain. What things underscore this evaluation?
Training: If the surgeon has trained at the best schools on the planet, much of the weeding out of intellect and talent has been done for you. A person who has a history of excellence will have a much higher probability of executing in a particular surgery. If someone lacks intellect or judgment or training, it will be very difficult for that surgeon to achieve success no matter how much purported experience is accumulated.
At the very least, a plastic surgeon should have trained and completed a full plastic surgery training program of 3 years in duration. Weekend courses or a cosmetic sojourn will not get the job done. Training in other specialties will not help create a plastic surgeon. I would not expect a heart surgeon to perform your liposuction, and I would not expect a plastic surgeon to perform your triple bypass heart operation. A plastic surgeon should be so expertly trained and capable that even on the first patient out of training an expert result is obtained.
Board Certification by the the American Board of Plastic Surgery is important as well. The American Board of Plastic Surgery is the only certifying board for plastic surgeons. The others are pretenders.
