The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the world’s largest plastic surgery specialty organization, recently released a powerful public service announcement, highlighting the dangers of “white coat deception.” What is white coat deception? Essentially, it is the practice of physicians offering plastic surgery procedures without board certification. Press “play” below to watch the 30-second PSA.
ABC News also reports on this recent phenomenon, explaining that, “In 48 states it is currently legal in the United States for doctors who are not certified by the board of plastic surgeons to practice cosmetic and plastic surgery.” Concerned? So are we.
“After going into surgery for a simple repair of her breast implants, Dinora Rodriguez …awoke from the procedure to find that her plastic surgeon had left her with conjoined breasts…” reports ABC. Ms. Rodriguez, who is 40 years old, explained that her biggest mistake was not checking her doctor’s credentials. And, according to the report, “Without her knowledge or permission, the surgeon had also nip/tucked her eyelids….” So, how could this have happened?
While Ms. Rodriguez’s doctor was supposedly licensed to practice plastic surgery in California, she was not “board certified” by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Read on to find out why board certification matters.
What does it mean to be “board certified?” The American Board of Medical Specialties recognizes only one certifying body for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery: the American Board of Plastic Surgery. For someone to call themselves a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, he or she must be officially recognized by this organization. These doctors stand out because they have demonstrated knowledge and experience above and beyond regular medical training.
So, when it comes to choosing a plastic surgeon, always make sure you’re dealing with someone who’s board certified. If you have any doubts, ask to see credentials. It’s your right!

When patients are considering plastic surgery, the questions can seem overwhelming: What procedure is right for me? Are all plastic surgeons the same? Where do I go? These questions are even more important in a world where nearly anyone can advertise themselves as a plastic surgeon. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons recently launched a media campaign explaining the dangers of this “white coat deception.” Essentially, white coat deception is when physicians perform plastic and cosmetic surgery without board certification. Surprisingly, it’s legal in most states. Concerned? So are we.

It is often assumed that individuals are most concerned about having plastic surgery on the parts of their bodies that are highly visible. However, individuals often choose plastic surgery as a result of their own feelings about their bodies and not what others think. The latest phenomenon in plastic surgery seems to be true to this ideology. Individuals are opting to have reconstructive surgery on their vaginas.
Women may feel as though their labia are unusual in size or shape. They may compare themselves to other women they know, or those that they see in images. Women may not realize that there is no “normal”, or they simply may not have the look they desire for themselves. Effectively, the same thought processes apply to the vagina as well as any other part of the body.
Women choose plastic surgery for a variety of personal reasons, as with vaginal plastic surgery.To discuss your needs, contact us.

The United States is currently witnessing a growing discussion about bullying among school-aged children, with many high-profile celebrities stepping up to speak out about this harmful phenomenon. Nonetheless, increased peer pressure has led to younger and younger people signing up for plastic surgery. A recent high-profile instance saw a girl of 13 getting a nose job in response to online taunts from her classmates. But how young is too young?
In a recent article, a number of notable plastic surgeons in the UK weigh in on the appropriate age at which to consider various plastic surgery procedures. Needless to say, the optimum age varies from patient to patient, but also from procedure to procedure. In the article, the doctors discuss procedures ranging from Botox injections (ideal age: 35+), to rhinoplasty (ideal age: 20+), to laser reduction of age spots (ideal age: 50+). The important deciding factors often have to do with bone growth and skin elasticity, and in general the body’s ability to most successfully incorporate the surgery.
As noted, the right age very much depends on both the procedure and the patient’s individual body. If you’re considering plastic surgery, contact us to discuss your needs and find out what’s right for you.

A new movie that is about to hit theaters will explore a different side of plastic surgery. It may cause viewers to question the future of the industry. “The Skin I Live In” is a movie starring Antonio Banderas.
The actor plays a plastic surgeon who decides to create a fire retardant substitute for skin after his wife passes away due to burn symptoms. The movie has a rather dark tone as the doctor featured is deeply troubled. However, it does also shed light on where medicine may be heading. The movie shows the main character traveling to numerous conferences as he experiments with recent medical technology in his personal lab.
It is a theme that may have seemed far-fetched a decade ago. Today, with successful face transplants and other major medical breakthroughs occurring, it is not so unrealistic.
Whether you love or hate the movie, the commentary about the plastic surgery field is undeniable.
