Choosing a Plastic Surgeon in Washington, DC

Three words you never want to hear – bad plastic surgery – have become so common, they’ve commanded their own television program. Unskilled surgeons performing complex aesthetic procedures in unaccredited facilities can’t help but lead to bad outcomes, and it is important to know how to select a Washington, DC plastic surgeon to help avoid an unpleasant experience.

The first thing to look for in a plastic surgeon is board certification. If your plastic surgeon has not been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), he is not an actual plastic surgeon and should not be trusted to perform aesthetic or reconstructive procedures. There is no exception to this rule.

In addition to being board-certified, your plastic surgeon should be a member of professional organizations such as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) along with state and local trade associations. These affiliations indicate a dedication to the art and science of face, breast, and body contouring procedures.
