Being able to trust your surgeon is the most important part of having any work done. Especially Plastic Surgery. Having the security of being attended by a certified specialist is appreciated by all.
In the past, there have been reports of unfavorable and adverse effects following procedures performed by physicians in Mexico. Patients had not taken the time to find a surgeon that had gone through plastic surgery residency, and have not qualified to become certified by the Mexican Council of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery AC. Complications can happen with any type of surgery; however, confirming your surgeon is certified by Mexican Council of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery AC serves as a warranty your surgeon has received the type of exams he/she needed to successfully pass, in order to receive that certification.
Also having duel certification with The American Board of Plastic Surgery will increase the changes the plastic surgeon had training including sixteen years of post-high school education, including specific training in reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery under direct supervision. Board-certified plastic surgeons have not only met very demanding requirements in order to sit for their boards, but they have also successfully passed a written and a 2-day oral examination, being critically evaluated for their fund of knowledge, their ethical standing and their safe and effective approach to multiple reconstructive and cosmetic challenges.
Once you decide you want to travel to Mexico for plastic surgery, taking part in medical tourism, it is even more important that you do the research before deciding who will operate on your face or body, it is indeed a “big deal!” Unfortunately, some people choose their hairdresser and even auto mechanic with more care and research than they use in choosing a surgeon. You may ask the opinion of friends you trust, of acquaintances who have traveled for plastic surgery needs (or experience with a certain provider) or on the basis of an advertisement that draws you to a certain website. Then, during a consultation where the patient finds out the doctor does indeed perform the requested operation(s), the doctor or his/her staff inform you the doctor is “Board Certified.”
All patients seeking plastic surgery procedures should do their homework and not just trust what the doctor or what the staff has told you about their certification before choosing their surgeon.
