Transcript: There are several important things you should look for when selecting a plastic surgeon for yourself or family. The first and most important is board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This shows that that physician has undergone extensive training and testing and is qualified to perform plastic and reconstructive surgery. The next thing that you should look at are reviews from patients of the plastic surgeon in order to get an idea of the quality of their work and their interaction with patients. Finally, it is important that the plastic surgeon is affiliated with a reputable hospital system and has privileges to perform procedures within the hospital.
Although your procedure may be performed in the office or an outpatient surgery center, hospitals will not allow surgeons that do not have valid credentials and an excellent medical history in terms of patient care to be on their staff.
