Why Is It Important for My Plastic Surgeon To Be A Member of the ASPS?

Choosing to undergo plastic surgery is a major life decision. But choosing who will perform the surgery is arguably an even more important decision. When looking for a plastic surgeon to perform any operation, it is important to know if they are a board certified plastic surgeon to ensure you are in the most capable hands for your procedure.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) represents 94% of all board-certified plastic surgeons in the U.S. and seeks to provide quality care to patients by implementing a high standard for training, physician practice, and research in plastic surgery. The ASPS requires its members to operate in an accredited surgical facility that has passed rigorous review of equipment and staffing. It also provides education and support to all members to maintain high professional standards.
When selecting a plastic surgeon to perform your operation, it is imperative to make sure the doctor you’re working with is ASPS board certified; to not be board certified in the field of plastic surgery is negligent. Take precaution when choosing the doctor, you wish to work with and understand it is your right to make sure that your doctor is qualified.
