Plastic Surgeons San Francisco Haynes Valley


Plastic surgeons are certified board physicians. These specialists are required to attend medical school, complete a three year residency program and another three year plastic surgery residency before they can receive their board certifications and practice independently.

There are a number of medical boards that specialize in plastic surgery, and each has different requirements; while some doctors are certified by one board, others chose to seek certification from each one. Plastic surgeons are still required to have board certifications to perform even non surgical procedures.

Plastic surgeons are the specialists who deal with cosmetic surgery and other treatments that usually have a lot to do with appearances and aesthetics. People immediately think of doctors who perform operations, which are invasive when they hear this job.

The fact of the matter is that not all of the treatments and procedures that these professionals offer are invasive. Many of them are outpatient treatments.

Plastic surgeons have great expertise in correcting physical deformities such as large nose, large and shapeless bust.

Women are presented with a variety of surgery options ranging from breast enhancement, dermabrasion, collagen treatment, tummy tuck, eyelid surgery, and liposuction and lip amplification.

Plastic surgeons after completing their general medical education will also need to complete a specific training program. The focus, instead of being on cosmetics, will be on learning how to surgically treat physical problems, such as tumors, deformities, and other types of complications. Upon completion of this training, they will then earn a certificate for plastic surgery specifically.

Either of these doctors have the option of becoming trained in both cosmetic and plastic surgery options, which are very convenient for their patients.

Plastic Surgeons are appropriately and completely termed Plastic Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgeons .. however they are now increasingly and popularly being called Plastic Cosmetic Surgeons.

The surgeon can not call himself a plastic surgeon unless he can do both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. Since the very root of almost all cosmetic/aesthetic procedures can be traced from early reconstructive procedure.

Thus a surgeon whose main interest is aesthetic plastic surgery, must also have a firm foundation on the reconstructive surgery, to better grasp the basic principle and application of cosmetic/aesthetic plastic surgery.

Reconstructive plastic surgery is a prerequisite in training for all plastic surgeons. So plastic surgeons are both an aesthetic/cosmetic surgeon and reconstructive surgeon.

At present, there are just a relatively limited number of certified Plastic Surgeon that one can go to. The so called run of the mill cosmetic surgeons without adequate formal training and experience abound and are alarmingly increasing.
