The Importance of a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
Today, stories of plastic surgeries gone awry are common in the news, becoming the subject of films and television shows documenting unfortunate journeys of health complications and repercussions. While there are a multitude of these tales in existence, they all more than likely have one thing in common behind them: an unqualified plastic surgeon. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John L. LeRoy always encourages patients to carefully select their doctors, verifying the proper credentials.
According to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, state laws permit any licensed physician to call themselves “plastic” or “cosmetic” surgeon, regardless of whether or not they’ve receiving surgical training and education as a plastic surgeon. Plastic surgery is defined as specialty training recognized by The American Board of Medical Specialties. In order to become board-certified, plastic surgeons complete a minimum of five years of surgical training following medical school, including a plastic surgery residency program.
During training, technical skill and aesthetic judgment are developed and constantly evolve through years of hands-on experience and education, which Dr. LeRoy values sharing with his patients. Plastic surgeons like Dr. LeRoy are unique in that they have an exceptional sense of aesthetics and the importance of balancing both form and function.
