FAQ for Plastic Surgery BEVERLY HILLS / LOS ANGELES
Some surgeons are referred to as “Plastic Surgeons” while others use the title “Cosmetic Surgeon”– is there a difference?
The doctor you choose should be Board Certified in Plastic Surgery. A cosmetic surgeon can be a dermotologist, gynocologist, dentist– or any other kind of doctor who has taken some courses to learn a cosmetic procedure. This can be somewhat extensive training– or a weekend crash course. Your best bet is to go with someone with YEARS of experience in performing aesthetic and reconstructive procedures (a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will have this type of experience).
