Won't Using a Board Certified Plastic or Cosmetic Surgeon be More Expensive?
Initially, using a board certified plastic or cosmetic surgeon may be a little more expensive. However, you do not run the risk of having multiple surgeries to correct mistakes when you choose a surgeon who is board certified. In the long run, using a cheap plastic surgeon who does not have the education and experience necessary to perform a procedure correctly can be more costly.
Why is Finding a Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon Important?
A board certified plastic surgeon is one who has completed additional education in cosmetic and plastic surgery. A board certified plastic surgeon must have a minimum of five years of plastic surgery experience before he or she is eligible to sit for the board exam. The final two of these five years must be in the plastic and cosmetic surgery field in which they wish to become certified. Once the surgeon has fulfilled the time required, he or she must take a written and an oral exam. If this exam is passed, certification is granted.
