Research Your Plastic Surgeon

2laprokWelcome to TRUE Cosmetic Plastic, the website devoted to promoting successful patient outcomes through public education about cosmetic plastic surgery.

Cosmetic plastic surgery can be a wonderful benefit for many people to improve their appearance, self-image, and self esteem by enhancing and/or restoring the face and/or body.

The most critical step for assuring a successful outcome is choosing a truly qualified plastic surgeon.

Unbelievably, no laws prevent any licensed doctor to advertise as a plastic surgeon, a cosmetic surgeon, a cosmetic plastic surgeon, or a cosmetic doctor, or to venture into specialized cosmetic plastic surgery procedures in their offices.  And there are more and more doctors who are not formally trained or certified as plastic surgeons who are marketing themselves as such.

As a result, the TRUE Cosmetic Plastic Surgeons are seeing more unhappy patients who have been treated by unqualified practitioners.  Unfortunately, many times these poor results are difficult or impossible to correct.

The public must be made aware of this issue and do their homework when it comes to choosing a “cosmetic plastic surgeon," "cosmetic surgeon," or "cosmetic doctor."

TRUE Cosmetic Plastic Surgeons are among the most highly trained surgical specialists who have devoted their entire careers to the field of Plastic Surgery which encompasses both Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery.  By selecting a TRUE Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon, one may be assured of receiving the benefit of the most extensive training and certification requirements for the specialty of Plastic Surgery.
