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, as well as achieving optimal outcomes based on your unique needs and goals. The following are six factors to consider when making this important decision:
- Make sure your surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). There are a number of 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.
- 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.
- Choose someone with whom you have a good rapport. Your plastic surgeon is not only going to be performing your surgery, they are 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.
- Talent is key. Many surgeons have great PR, 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 in order to assess their skill and eye for aesthetics.
- 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.
- 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, or ABPS, is one of 24 “Member Boards” recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties—the only government-sanctioned organization that certifies medical specialty boards in the U.S. Each of these Member Boards assesses and certifies physicians who prove they have the clinical judgment, attitude, and expertise necessary to deliver exceptional patient care in their specific specialty. In addition to confirming such credentials as graduation from an accredited medical school and completion of residency training in a recognized institution, the evaluation conducted by every Member Board also entails a strenuous examination process that must be passed before board certification can be obtained.
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.

Furthermore, Dr. Broumand is frequently asked to highlight their distinct approaches to numerous cosmetic procedures on The Plastic Surgery Channel (PSC), which is an esteemed multi-media outlet run exclusively by some of the world’s leading plastic surgeons.
Our Doctor Accommodate 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, our doctor’s approach involves three key stages: preservation, maintenance, and correction—all of which can overlap.
When an individual comes in for a consultation, our team will figure out 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, diet, 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 our surgeon, after which we will transition them onto a preservation and/or maintenance schedule. For example, let’s say a patient receives rejuvenative eyelid surgery. If there is sun damage that 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, we endeavor to provide a comprehensive approach to beauty, health, and wellness that helps patients maintain optimal results throughout the lifelong aging process.
We Are More Than Just a Surgical Office
Rather than being categorized as simply a surgical office, a skin treatment office, or a wellness office, our goal is to bridge the gap between each aspect of care. Patients can come to our practice and receive input from several qualified professionals, including a board-certified plastic surgeon, aesthetician, dietitian, chef, lymphatic massage therapist, and various medical assistants. We are not just offering one option; we are combining and bundling all of these together to achieve a great outcome. So, if someone undergoes facelift surgery, they will also receive a lymphatic massage, aesthetician-supervised recuperation, skin care, post-surgical maintenance treatments, and more. In the end, the combination of all these elements can help preserve the investment each individual makes in his or her appearance throughout the aging process.
