When selecting a cosmetic surgeon in Chicago, it is critical that you carefully assess the surgeon’s ability to perform your surgery. There are many doctors who profess to be cosmetic surgeons in Chicago and on the North Shore, but not all possess the same level of training, credentials, or experience. We suggest you consider some of the following factors when looking for a cosmetic surgeon:
There are many ways to find a cosmetic surgeon in Chicago. You can begin with the following tools:
It is important that you find a cosmetic surgeon who is board certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). “Board certified” does not automatically mean a doctor is certified by ABPS. Any licensed physician may perform surgery without being board certified in the specialty area of plastic and cosmetic surgery.
An American Board of Plastic Surgery certified cosmetic surgeon has graduated from an accredited medical school and has completed at least five years of additional residency training. You can verify the doctor's certification by contacting the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) at 1-888-4-PLASTIC. They will be able to tell you which doctors are legitimate cosmetic surgeons in the Chicago area. You can also visit the ASPS web site at http://www.plasticsurgery.org/. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons is the only board approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties, which certifies physicians in plastic surgery of the face and all areas of the body.
It is important to us that you are comfortable with the cosmetic surgeon you choose.
