The Importance of Choosing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Whether you’re considering cosmetic or reconstructive plastic surgery, there are many choices you need to make.

The first and most important choice is selecting a plastic surgeon you can trust. While many health care providers are now performing plastic surgery procedures, it is important to note that not all of them are qualified to perform plastic surgery.

By selecting a plastic surgeon who is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), you are choosing a qualified, highly trained plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery® (ABPS).  This assures you the plastic surgeon has completed at least six years of surgical training following medical school with a minimum of three years of plastic surgery residency training, and completes continuing medical education including patient safety annually.

With their training and expertise, ASPS Member Surgeons are uniquely qualified to perform your cosmetic or reconstructive procedure and will only do so in an accredited medical facility that must meet strict national standards for equipment, operating room safety, personnel and surgical credentials. Your plastic surgeon should put your health and safety first.

At Bangor Plastic and Hand Surgery, we know the decision to have plastic surgery is extremely personal and every patient’s goals are unique.  Our board certified plastic surgeon and qualified staff strive to provide you excellent patient care, comfort, and state of the art services in a warm, friendly environment that includes a private, AAAASF accredited, cosmetic only operating room.
