For patients in Boca Raton Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jonathan Berman is the natural choice. How can you tell if Dr. Berman is the right plastic surgeon for you? Let’s see what you should look for in a plastic surgeon, and compare it with what Dr. Berman has to offer:
Verify your doctor possesses superior credentials, training, and certifications in Plastic Surgery
You should always make sure your surgery or cosmetic procedure is performed by a highly trained, Board-certified Plastic Surgeon. Many people mistakenly believe that plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgeons are the same, but there is actually an enormous difference between the two. Any doctor can provide cosmetic surgery services, including general practitioners, dermatologists, dentists, and even some nurse practitioners, as there is no single, established certification process to verify the level of skill that cosmetic surgeons possess.
By contrast, plastic surgeons must undergo a rigorous training, testing, and review process in order to be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. In order to become a certified plastic surgeon, a doctor must perform an extra 7 to 8 years of training after he or she finishes medical school, including serving a surgery residency in the specialty of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, passing a battery of oral and written tests, and finally receiving approval from a rigorous peer review board. Don’t forget the annual peer reviews and recertifications in the specialty.
Make sure the plastic surgery facility is clean, accredited, and well-staffed
Depending on the plastic surgery procedure you are having, it may be performed directly in your surgeon’s offices, or in a separate surgical facility. Make sure you know where the procedure will be performed ahead of time so you can familiarize yourself with the facility and staff. For the safest surgical experience you should choose a plastic surgeon who operates out of an accredited surgical facility or spa and partners with an experienced, well-trained staff. If you will be anesthetized for your procedure, the medicine should ideally be administered by a board certified anesthesiologist.
