Breast Implants USA Reminds the Public of the Importance of Choosing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
November 16, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsCulver City, CA – November 16, 2007 – Breast Implants USA (breastimplantsusa.com) – The recent passing of Donda West is an important reminder of the true importance of choosing a plastic surgeon that is board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery.
The mission of The American Board of Plastic Surgery, Inc. is to promote safe, ethical, efficacious plastic surgery to the public by maintaining high standards for the education, examination, certification and recertification of plastic surgeons as specialists and sub-specialists. This is the only Board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) to certify doctors in the specialty of plastic surgery. This ensures you that the physician a) graduated from an accredited medical school b) completed at least 5 years of surgical residency training c) practiced plastic surgery for at least two years d) passed a rigorous written and oral examination which covers both the cosmetic and reconstructive areas of plastic surgery. Breast Implants USA reminds patients that it is important for patients to understand that plastic surgery is a real surgery and does carry some risk.
David Phillips, President and CEO of Breast Implants USA stresses,
“We try to do everything we can to educate patients about the importance of choosing a plastic surgeon that is Board Certified by the ABPS. It is very frightening to know that there are so many unqualified physicians out there performing plastic surgery. Patients need to understand they are dealing with their body, their long term health and the choice of a plastic surgeon can have a significant effect on that. It is vital to choose a plastic surgeon board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.”
All physicians on Breast Implants USA and My Plastic Surgeon USA are Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Breast Implants USA and My Plastic Surgeon USA provides articles, FAQ’s, video and audio interviews and recommends patients to have consultations with more than one plastic surgeon, verify their status with the American Board of Medical Specialties, with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and with the State Medical Boards.
David Phillips further reminds prospective patients, “When searching for a plastic surgeon, the first question you have to ask is if the potential physician is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. If the physician is not, then move on.”
Breast Implants USA wishes to express their condolences to the West family and would like to remind prospective patients of the importance of Board Certification.
