- When you’re buying a commodity, you shop for the best price. When fighting the hands of time, or seeking aesthetic treatments, you seek a skilled provider.
The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS)
cautions that discounted offers for cosmetic treatments could lead to horrifying outcomes. Health and safety should come first. Always trust your face to a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
“A surgeon doing a procedure at the lowest price may not be setting the highest bar,” says Mary Lynn Moran, MD, a board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and president of the AAFPRS. “They could be cutting corners or lack experience.” The AAFPRS directs patients to conduct research before scheduling a procedure. “Make sure the surgeon is qualified, experienced, and board-certified in the procedure that you are seeking. Don’t be afraid to ask tough background and credential questions.”
Each state has a state medical board which regulates and oversees the physicians licensed in that state. The state boards are supported by the Federation of State Medical Boards to further unify and strengthen the mission of the state boards to keep patients safe. If you are seeking a surgical procedure on the face, the AAFPRS recommends that you select a surgeon who trained specifically in procedures of the face, head, and neck such as those certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
