Board Certifications

Who We Are

cosmetic surgeons atlanta

Whenever you decide to make enhancements to your body, it is important that you receive the procedure from a doctor who you trust. At Advanced Aesthetics, each of our doctors have the qualifications necessary to perform the procedures you desire.

Why Is Board Certification Important?

State laws allow any physician, regardless of whether they have received formal training, to perform cosmetic surgery. For this reason, it is important for you to be selective when choosing a plastic surgeon in Atlanta.

Plastic surgery is a specialty, and it is a field that requires an additional five years of training after medical school as well as participation in a residency program in order to become board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Selecting a Plastic Surgeon

A plastic surgeon should be an expert in physiology and anatomy and also have a comprehensive understanding of every working system in the body. It is also paramount for a plastic surgeon to have experience performing simple and complex reconstructive surgeries. During your consultation, ask to see before and after photographs of some of the patients the surgeon has worked on. These images should give you a good idea of their precision and aesthetic judgement. Additionally, membership status is important to consider when selecting a surgeon. Belonging to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), for instance, is an indicator that your surgeon is board certified, has significant cosmetic surgery experience, and is staying updated on innovative medical practices.

Technical skill is also an important asset to have when performing plastic surgery procedures. A plastic surgeon who is able to make complex procedures look natural and proportional has had enough experience to understand the detail that is involved in extensive surgeries. The ability to quickly and efficiently respond to emergency situations is another method your plastic surgeon should be familiar with. Overall, asking questions about your surgeon’s credentials and experience performing certain procedures will help you determine whether plastic surgery with that particular surgeon is right for you.
