Myth II: All Chicago Plastic Surgeons Have the Same Credentials

Introducing you to Myth II that is a common topic for people interested in plastic surgery in Chicago. Many people believe that all plastic surgeons have the same credentials based on advertisements they see on T.V., print magazines, Facebook, Google Plus , Twitter, Pinterest or other social media. You would not be alone if you heard a Cosmetic Surgery Advertisement over the airwaves, in your email inbox, or via text message. On many occasions, these ads make misleading statements about the credentials of the plastic surgeon or the technology used in the practice. If you are considering responding to an advertisement that states “Cosmetic Surgeon”, it may be buyer beware.

Truth: Chicago Plastic Surgeons Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery Meet the Highest Standards in Plastic Surgery.

If a Chicago plastic surgeon is not board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, you may have little assurance about the types of ingredients in substances like injectables or the technology used in procedures. Low level technology and diluted or poor quality ingredients may lead to a suboptimal outcome and increases the risk for complications. Too, the provider may not know how to treat complications. Conversely, Chicago plastic surgeons board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery must adhere to high standards to offer gold standard technology and procedures that have passed a test of time for safety and efficacy.

It’s important to note that cosmetic treatments are technique driven. Medical professionals who have completed extensive education, training, continuing education courses and have performed the procedure many times are far more likely to provide quality results. In some cases, this may play a role in the longevity of results.
