What is a Facial Plastic Surgeon?
With many different types of aesthetic surgeons in practice today, it is important for you to make an informed decision when considering an elective procedure. One of the most confusing issues facing patients when choosing a surgeon is that of board certification. It is important to seek out a surgeon who is board certified in the correct field of expertise. If you are considering surgery of the face and neck, that area of expertise is facial plastic surgery.
