What to Consider When Choosing a Plastic Surgeon

Choosing the right plastic surgeon to perform your cosmetic surgery procedure is imperative to receiving the safest, most effective treatment and achieving optimal outcomes based on your unique needs and goals. The following are six factors to consider when making this important decision.

  • 1. Make sure your surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). There are several boards by which operating physicians can be certified—such as the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the American Board of Surgery, etc.—though not all are created equal. The American Board of Plastic Surgery is the only legitimate certification for plastic surgeons. Learn more about the distinctions of ABPS in the next section.
  • 2. Make sure your surgeon is an expert in the particular field of surgery you are considering. For instance, you want to have a physician who is well-seasoned and capable, meaning they are not just beginning to practice plastic surgery; they have been performing plastic surgery for a long time and have the capacity to achieve your desired results.
  • 3. Choose someone with whom you have a good rapport. Your plastic surgeon is not only going to be performing your surgery; your surgeon is also going to be caring for you before your surgery and following up with you long after your operation. You want someone who understands you, connects well with your personality, and will be fully compassionate and attentive throughout your entire procedural process.
  • 4. Talent is key. Many surgeons have great PR, and some have high positions at hospitals and institutions, but none of that necessarily equates to talent. It is good to speak with other patients as well as view results the doctor has been able to achieve to assess their skill and eye for aesthetics.
  • 5. If they operate in-office, make sure they do so in a certified surgical suite. Accreditation for on-site surgical facilities requires surgeons to meet and maintain the same standards of safety and care upheld in hospital operating rooms.
  • 6. Keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Though lower prices can be tempting, you should be aware that cost more often than not reflects the expertise of your surgeon, as well as the quality of care you can expect to receive.

Ultimately, if something does not feel right, it is probably not right. Take your time, do your homework, and only proceed with treatment when you feel absolutely comfortable.

Importance of Selecting a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

Though there are a number of physicians—as well as non-physicians—who offer cosmetic procedures at their practices, a key distinction all patients should look for in their prospective surgeon is whether or not they are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) is one of the 24 “Member Boards” accredited by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), the only organization in the U.S. officially authorized to certify medical specialty boards. These Member Boards are responsible for evaluating and certifying physicians, ensuring they possess the clinical judgment, professionalism, and expertise required for providing outstanding patient care within their specific medical specialty. This certification process involves not only verification of the physician’s credentials, successful graduation from an accredited medical school, and completion of residency training at a recognized institution but also passing a rigorous examination process. Only after fulfilling these requirements can a physician achieve board certification.

Ultimately, the American Board of Plastic Surgery is the only recognized board that evaluates and certifies plastic surgeons, and verifying that your prospective physician is certified by ABPS ensures they have met and consistently maintain rigorous standards of plastic surgical care and excellence throughout all aspects of their practice.

Accommodating All Stages of Aging

Dr. Broumand strives to provide an all-encompassing, global approach to healthcare for patients. It is not simply about coming to our office for a specific concern, receiving treatment, and then being done forever. Instead, his approach involves three key stages: preservation, maintenance, and correction—all of which can overlap.

When an individual comes in for a consultation, Dr. Broumand will determine which stage they most appropriately fit into based on their specific needs and goals. For some patients, it could initially be the preservation stage, which may necessitate topical skin care treatments, nutrition and lifestyle modifications, or noninvasive procedures to help preserve what is youthful and attractive. Once we have gotten them to a good state—whether it is with their skin quality, complexion, weight, etc.—we can move to other treatments, such as minimally invasive procedures, to help maintain their appearance and overall wellness.

In contrast, others could be interested in having something corrected the first time they see Dr. Broumand, after which we will transition them onto a preservation and/or maintenance schedule. For example, if a patient receives rejuvenating eyelid surgery and sun damage keeps recurring around the eyes later down the road, this can be treated with nonsurgical techniques such as laser resurfacing to help preserve a youthful look.

Ultimately, everyone falls into one of the three aging categories, and we have a full gamut of treatments and procedures for each individual’s unique needs. Above all, Dr. Broumand and his team endeavor to provide a comprehensive approach to beauty, health, and wellness that helps patients maintain optimal results throughout the lifelong aging process.

Giving Back

Throughout his medical career, Stafford R. Broumand, MD has always held charitable work in high regard. Despite differing politics or regional variances throughout the nation and the world, he firmly believes people who are in a position to assist underprivileged and less fortunate individuals should aim to do so when possible. As a testament to this belief, Dr. Broumand annually consults with APROQUEN to help in future reconstructive surgeries for Central American children suffering from severe burns and the subsequent disfigurations resulting from these injuries.

Established in 1991, APROQUEN is a philanthropic organization devoted to providing free and comprehensive medical care to pediatric burn victims in Nicaragua. In addition, APROQUEN offers inclusive complimentary care to children who have cleft lip and cleft palate, as well as technical expertise all across Central America. Backed by his extensive Fellowship training in burn reconstruction at Shriners Burns Institute, Dr. Broumand has a great understanding of and sympathy for children and adolescents whose lives have been impacted by serious burns. In an attempt to help those in need, he makes yearly trips to Nicaragua with APROQUEN to volunteer his knowledge and skillset to the foundation’s Burn Center by advising on burn reconstruction procedures.
