If you’re considering having any type of cosmetic procedure done you should be researching the practice and doctor before visualizing your before and after pictures. Unfortunately, it can be very simple for any licensed physician to give the impression that they are a qualified plastic surgeon. With so many memberships to different societies and boards it can be hard to tell which ones require more than just a medical license. Don’t worry!! Once you know what to look for you will feel more comfortable knowing you’ve selected the right doctor and practice. First you should confirm that your plastic surgeon is a good standing member with the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. To become a member of this Board, doctors are required to have extensive medical training, experience and precise surgical education. It is also equally important for you to take a look at the facility the doctor uses. The highest safety standard a surgery center can acquire is to be recognized by the Accreditation Association of Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). Hospitals are required to have their AAAHC. This means that the surgical facility went above and beyond the minimum requirements to provide their patients the BEST! To further accommodate you, the facility of your choice should have an Overnight Suite with nursing care available to all patients. Here at Carlos Spera Plastic Surgery, you’ll find that not only are you in the best hands when seeing our doctors but you will also be treated in the best facilities available to you here in south Florida. If you’re still not convinced after visiting us online, come in for a complimentary consult with Dr. Spera or Dr. Rodriguez and see for yourself!!
