Resources

Know what to expect before, during and after your procedure or service.

At Charlotte Plastic Surgery, we encourage our patients to do their research and explore all their options. We also know it can be an overwhelming task to find the information you can trust. That’s why we’ve compiled several resources that help you feel more prepared and at ease before moving forward with a procedure or service. At the same time, we’re always here to answer your questions face-to-face with a complimentary consultation. The more you look into your options, the better you’ll look.

Board Certifications

Board certification through the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) recognizes a physician’s exceptional expertise in a particular specialty and/or subspecialty of medical practice. The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) is the member board of the ABMS that certifies plastic surgeons.

There are other medical boards that claim to provide board certification to plastic surgeons; however, the requirements, testing and maintenance of credentials may not be as rigorous as the ABMS member boards. Be sure to check the credentials of any surgeon you are considering, and make sure that he or she is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. The following articles go into greater detail about the importance of board certification.
