Choosing a plastic surgeon can be a confusing task, but the most important thing to consider before making your decision, is if your doctor has undergone the elite training that is required for being a recognized plastic surgeon; not just a surgeon that performs cosmetic procedures. Specialized training prepares the surgeon to perform distinct cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery procedures all over the body. This elite standard can be identified by Board Certification from The American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Adams is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, accredited by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This means he has undergone the rigorous additional, comprehensive surgical training required by the Board, and passed both extensive final written and oral examinations. Furthermore, certification requires continuous self-assessment and developmental standards that must be met.
There are many classifications of board certification, but only the American Board of Plastic Surgery differentiates true plastic surgeons. As a patient, it is imperative to confirm your doctor has this precise certification.
