Many women are very particular when it comes to selecting a pair of shoes. The rate of injuries for U.S. women associated with wearing high heels form 2002 to 2012 was 7.32 per 100,000, with most injuries consisting of sprains and strains to the foot and ankle (Journal of Foot & Ankle Surgery). Like selecting a pair of shoes, you must also be selective when it comes to who your physician is.
Many physicians perform numerous surgeries throughout the year but it takes a real master to specialize in one specific field. Something you may not know is that many physicians who perform cosmetic surgery are not actually plastic surgeons.
The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) is the only board approved by the National Board of Medical Specialties. Members are certified based on the highest standards and have done more than just take a weekend course in cosmetic surgery. Before choosing your surgeon, review the doctors overall experience and training, and most importantly their board-certifications as well as hospital privileges to perform the surgery that you are considering.
The plastic surgeons at Star Plastic Surgery have completed the necessary residencies and fellowships in order to become the experts that they are. Cosmetic Surgery is all we do and our physicians pride themselves on concentrating on the individual they are working with. Before you decide to get plastic surgery done, please make sure that you are working with an ABPS board-certified plastic surgeon. Having the training and expertise to create the best possible outcome is more than just throwing on a mask and a white coat.
