Why It Is Important To Seek a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Adam J. Rubinstein, a Miami-based, board-certified plastic surgeon explains the importance of board-certification, noting it can be confusing; however, the only board in the United States that certifies plastic surgeons is the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS)

Make sure your physician is properly trained, board-certified and practicing within their respective specialty. “You’ve got pulmonologists, radiologists, ER doctors, family practitioners, dentists that are putting breast implants in!” exclaims Dr. Rubinstein.

Would you go to an Italian restaurant and order Chinese food? Probably not. You probably wouldn’t ask your electrician to fix the pipes that are leaking either. So if you plan on undergoing a plastic surgery procedure, you need to look for your best and most qualified plastic surgeon not your gynecologist or your pediatrician.

Even if the risk of a complication is just 1%, if it happens to you, it feels like 100%. Keep in mind there’s a difference between the lowest price and the best value. Sometimes paying a little extra is going to give you a much bigger value. You’ll get what you pay for, but you could get a better bargain sometimes paying a little more.

You really need to know what your resources are and how to keep yourself safe, how to make safe and smart choices. That is what Smart Beauty Guide is all about.
