When people are looking to get plastic surgery done, they need to make sure that they are choosing a qualified surgeon for the procedure. Many patients are afraid of terrible results that have them looking worse than before. Or even worse, getting infections and having to deal with complications. There are a lot of horror stories out there, but that is because most of those patients went to unqualified surgeons to get their procedure done. It is so important you get any plastic or cosmetic surgery from a board-certified surgeon.

Doctors who are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery have been specially trained in plastic surgery practices. Also, they need to follow rigorous continuous training and education to stay board certified. Board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery ensures the doctors do these five things:

  1. Have specialized training: To become board-certified, doctors must complete at least five years of surgical training after medical school, including finishing a plastic surgery residency program.
  2. Have aesthetic expertise: Their training includes years of reconstructive surgery that focuses on function and form.
  3. Complete rigorous testing: The board certification process requires the surgeons to pass a set of rigorous examinations as well as fulfilling additional requirements by the board.
  4. Continuous education: When a physician is board-certified, it does not stop there. They are required to participate in continuing education programs to maintain their status.
  5. Have a dedication to patient care and safety: Board certification is voluntary and showcases a commitment to providing the highest standard and quality of care for the patients.

The American Board of Plastic Surgery aims to produce ethical, qualified plastic surgeons with extensive knowledge of the entire spectrum of plastic surgery. At Accent On You, patients can feel safe and comfortable knowing that Dr. Nakamura is held to these high standards.
