5 Reasons You Need a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

As cosmetic procedures continue to increase in popularity and availability, unfortunately so does the number of unqualified providers. Whether you are considering a surgical or nonsurgical cosmetic procedure, the most important decision you will make is the doctor with whom you choose to work.

Taking a little extra time to research your provider and ensure that he or she is a board-certified plastic surgeon can save you money, time and even your health and safety in the long run. Here are just a few of the most important reasons why working with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Bunch is so critical to getting the natural-looking, safe and effective results you want.

1. Extensive Training and Education

Board-certified plastic surgeons undergo rigorous education and training. This includes completing a minimum of six years of surgical training after medical school, with at least three years specifically in plastic surgery. They must also pass comprehensive written and oral exams to demonstrate their expertise and knowledge. 

This extensive training ensures that board-certified plastic surgeons are well-versed in and highly qualified to perform a wide range of procedures. Dr. Bunch, for example, has had extensive training in microsurgery, facial plastic surgery, rhinoplasty and endoscopic cosmetic procedures, as well as both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures. 

2. Commitment to Safety and Ethics

Board-certified plastic surgeons adhere to strict ethical standards and are committed to patient safety. They are required to perform surgeries in accredited medical facilities that meet high standards for safety and quality. This commitment to safety reduces the risk of complications and ensures that you receive the best possible care during and after your procedure.

3. Up-to-Date Knowledge and Techniques

Board-certified plastic surgeons are required to participate in continuing medical education to maintain their certification. This ensures that they stay current with the latest advancements in plastic surgery techniques, technologies and safety protocols. By choosing a board-certified surgeon, you benefit from their up-to-date knowledge and the most advanced procedures available.

4. Personalized Care

Board-certified plastic surgeons are trained to provide personalized care tailored to your specific needs and goals. They provide thorough consultations to understand your expectations, assess your candidacy for the procedure and develop a customized surgical plan. This emphasis on providing individualized surgical plans and care helps to ensure that you achieve natural-looking results that seamlessly blend with your natural features.

5. Improved Results and Satisfaction 

The combination of advanced training, expertise and a commitment to high safety standards tends to lead to higher success rates and improved patient satisfaction when working with a board-certified plastic surgeon. In fact, some studies have found that patients who work with a board-certified plastic surgeon are happier with their final results than those who choose other providers.
