We at Dr. Frank’s office believe all patients need to have this information to make informed choices in their search for the right plastic surgeon in Chicago and Northern Indiana.
What Is A Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon?
When you consider plastic surgery, we want this information to help guide your decision. Many patients are surprised to learn that any licensed medical doctor, regardless of training, can legally perform plastic surgery and call her or himself a plastic surgeon. To become certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a surgeon must first complete an approved residency in plastic surgery. After that they must pass a written qualifying examination, and then an oral certifying examination.
It is highly recommended that patients find a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties to certify a surgeon in facial plastic surgery and other cosmetic surgery. Certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is “the gold standard” for plastic surgeons because it signifies that the surgeon has had formal training in an accredited plastic surgery residency program.
The good news is that, with just a small investment of time to learn a few basics, you’ll be in great position to choose a qualified plastic surgeon that will deliver beautiful results and safeguard your health.
