When looking for a surgeon for your elective surgery, it will be important to identify the background of experience your choice of surgeon has so that you feel comfortable and confident working with them. It can be difficult when you are met with two options: cosmetic surgeons and plastic surgeons. Prospective patients may feel puzzled by the differences. Many people do not realize that there are definite differences between the two.

Cosmetic surgery is elective in nature and focuses on enhancing the appearance of the face and body, such as with a facelift. Patients can select which procedure will best achieve their desired results. Plastic surgery is generally considered reconstructive surgery, working to correct abnormal or dysfunctional parts of the body. While they are two distinct paths for a surgeon to take, there are no residency programs that focus on cosmetic surgery. When you are looking for plastic surgeons, they will have completed an intensive residency program in plastic surgery or a related field, as well as post-residency training and supplemental experience for elective procedures.

After completing undergraduate education and medical school, he had 7 additional years years of intensive surgical training from the University of California at Irvine. He is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He has had his own private practice as a plastic surgeon since 1998.

If you’re looking to enhance the look of your body through surgery, you are looking into cosmetic surgery with a plastic surgeon. However, regardless of whether you are looking into cosmetic or restorative surgery, you need to find a doctor who has experience in the procedure you are looking to have done. It’s the best way to ensure the best results.
