What To Look For In A Plastic Surgeon

Do your homework. In the state of Florida over the last 10 years, there have been over 25 deaths and hundreds of hospitalizations from procedures performed by unqualified physicians. This is due in part because, within Florida, any medical doctor can perform ANY procedure in their "office." Most states do not regulate what can be done within an office visit. The most important thing to look for when seeking a surgeon to perform a cosmetic procedure is to find a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. They must have the privilege to perform the procedure in a hospital and/or an accredited surgical center. The consequences can be deadly or can cause permanent disfigurement and scarring.

One way to fact-check that information is by going online and searching your surgeon on the American Board of Medical Specialists List. Dr. Michael K. Kim is a board-certified Plastic Surgeon with Associates in Cosmetic Surgery and has the training and accreditation you should seek when choosing a plastic surgeon.
