Choosing a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
If you are considering having some kind of plastic surgery procedure, it is important that you choose your plastic surgeon very carefully. You want the best results with the lowest risk of complications, which means choosing a surgeon who is professional and qualified. One excellent way of determining if your plastic surgeon is qualified to perform your plastic surgery procedure is to see if he or she is board-certified. Dr. Ankit Desai, Dr. Michael Fallucco, and Dr. Joseph Parks are board-certified in plastic surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Inc.
Board Certification Means Proven Competence
What is so special about board-certified plastic surgeons? Board certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery is an extremely challenging and rigorous process, meaning that any board-certified plastic surgeons, such as our doctors, are proven to be knowledgeable and competent in plastic surgery. To be eligible to take the oral and written board certification exams, a doctor must already have:
- Graduated from an accredited medical school
- Completed at least 5 years of surgical residency in an accredited program
- Residency training must include at least 2 years of dedicated plastic surgery residency
Whether medically necessary or elective, plastic surgery is definitely a serious medical procedure entailing some degree of risk. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon helps minimize the risk of complications and helps ensure excellent results.
