Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery Sheds Light On Choosing The Correct Plastic Surgeon

Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) July 16, 2013

With over 10 million procedures performed last year, cosmetic procedures are on the rise and becoming more common for both men and women. There is an increasing number of men and women turning to cosmetic treatments to help them look and feel younger.

Choosing the best plastic surgeon is the most important decision you will make regarding your plastic surgery experience. It will ensure that you get the most qualified and well trained physician to give you the results that you want. Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery has several tips to help you choose the plastic surgeon that is right for you.

The first thing to keep in mind is to make certain that your plastic surgeon is well trained and experienced. To ensure your plastic surgeon is qualified, the American Board of Plastic Surgery requires that each physician has attended an accredited medical school, completed a plastic surgery residency that is fully accredited by the ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education), and passed rigorous written and oral exams. Once a surgeon is Board Certified, he/she becomes eligible to become a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The ASPS is the governing body of plastic surgery. They set strict ethical, moral, and educational standards and only accept surgeons who meet these stringent requirements.

If you have been considering a cosmetic or reconstructive surgery, the four board certified plastic surgeons at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, Dr. Timothy Treece, Dr. Susan Vasko, Dr. Robert Heck, and Dr. John Wakelin, can help. They have two convenient locations in Upper Arlington and Easton Town Center serving Columbus and all surrounding areas.
