A few days ago, 40-year-old homemaker Dinora Rodriguez filed a malpractice suit against her surgeon for seriously messing up her breast augmentation and eyelid surgery procedures. The botched procedures performed by a non-board certified plastic surgeon left Dinora with conjoined boobs and badly nipped eyelids that made it difficult for her to close her eyes.
Concerned with the rising number of botched cosmetic surgeries, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) issued a strong warning to the public against going through cosmetic procedures under the care of non-board certified surgeons. According to the ASPS, the rising number of cosmetic surgery patients who land in the emergency rooms due to heart attacks, deep vein thrombosis and other serious complications highlight the risk of having cosmetic procedures under the hands of non-board certified surgeons.
Advantages of Having ASPS Certified Surgeon
There are a number of plastic surgeon certification boards in the United States but not all of these boards adhere to stringent accreditation standards. In fact, only the ASPS requires its accreditation applicants to have at least 5 years of extensive training in the field of surgery and a minimum of 2 years of experience in surgery.
Aside from being highly skilled, ASPS accredited surgeons adhere to high ethical standards. Since all ASPS certified plastic surgeons are highly trained, you can be sure that these doctors can give you good results without exposing you to unnecessary risks.
