At the Sarasota, FL plastic surgery practice, Jeff Scott, MD, FACS, recently discussed the importance of choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon when considering cosmetic enhancement or reconstructive surgery, such as breast augmentation, liposuction, or tummy tuck.
According to recent study conducted by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of cosmetic enhancement procedures performed between 1997 and 2009 – including surgical and nonsurgical – increased 147%. As aesthetic surgery becomes more prevalent, Dr. Jeff Scott, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Sarasota and Bradenton, FL, discusses the importance of board-certification in light of these statistics from ASAPS.
At the Plastic Surgery Center, which has two locations in Sarasota and Bradenton, FL, Dr. Scott offers a variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures, ranging from BOTOX Cosmetic ® to breast augmentation. The doctor points out the increase in types of breast surgeries alone, and say the rigorous qualification process required by the American Board of Plastic Surgery ensures his patients receive the most effective plastic surgery results. He adds that the education, training, and experience they gained during that process enables them to provide patients with safer care and the greatest chance at achieving their ultimate aesthetic enhancement goals, whether they are consideringliposuction or a tummy tuck.
With over 10 million cosmetic enhancement procedures performed in the U. S. in 2009 alone, Dr. Scott says that board certification is a necessary component for any significant life decision such as plastic surgery. Due to the challenging evaluation process, he adds that they are uniquely qualified as plastic surgeons, which contributes to the overall safety of his patients at the Plastic Surgery Center in Sarasota and Bradenton, FL.
