Submitted by Bernabe Vazquez on June 13, 2013

7Thinking about plastic surgery in Miami? Here are some key facts to include that will ensure a successful outcome. The way the current State laws stand, licensed physicians can refer to themselves as cosmetic surgeons and claim to perform plastic surgery. There is growing concern that more and more physicians are operating out of their area of specialty especially physicians who have never been trained as surgeons, let alone as plastic surgeons. Attaining certification in plastic surgery entails many years of training and experience and ensures the physician is a trained expert in body and facial procedures.

What Plastic Surgery Training Entails

Specific training in plastic surgery deals with the repair and reconstruction of the skin, musculoskeletal system, cranio and maxillofacial structures, extremities, breast and trunk of the male and female bodies. With the years of training that are inherent in achieving board certification, surgical judgment, technical expertise with surgical anatomy, physiology, pathology, ethics and interpersonal skills are honed to the point that the plastic surgeon is expertly prepared to practice independently.The years of training develop technical skills and aesthetic judgment, which adds to the expertise of the plastic surgeon and the successes of his surgeries. Judgment of balance and proportion comes with training and experience.

Recommended Facilities

Because plastic surgery may entail complex details such as the transplantation of tissue, the transferring of flaps and many other complex procedures, it is highly recommended that the proposed facility be an in-house surgical facility with a reputable hospital affiliation.

Among the Best
