Credentials to Look for When Choosing NY Facial Plastic Surgeon
If you are considering cosmetic surgery, it is essential for your personal health and safety that you choose a board-certified NY facial plastic surgeon. In our previous post we discussed the importance of board certification and cases of tragic disfigurement that have resulted when plastic surgery procedures are performed by physicians who are not board-certified in plastic surgery.
If you are planning to have facial plastic surgery, you should be aware that there are important differences even among board certified plastic surgeons.
The field of plastic surgery is fairly broad, covering everything from liposuction and Botox treatments to complicated revision rhinoplasty and face lifts. Manhattan plastic surgeons who concentrate their practice exclusively on the face and neck should be board certified specifically in facial plastic surgery by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
To ensure his patients that they receive the highest level of professional care, Manhattan facial plastic surgeon Dr. Edward Kwak has taken the additional step of earning dual board certification in both facial plastic surgery and head and neck surgery, which is conferred by the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery.
