You know that you want your cosmetic surgeon to be as experienced and professional as possible, but how can you tell? A board certification can help you make your decision, but what does it mean to be double board certified?

If you’re considering cosmetic surgery, it is important that your surgeon is a highly qualified, highly trained professional. You need to make sure that your prospective surgeon is board certified and is experienced performing the procedure you desire.

There are a few different boards that certify plastic and cosmetic surgeons such as the:

· American Board of Plastic Surgery

· American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

· American Board of Cosmetic Surgery

With plastic and cosmetic surgery, there are different areas of medicine that overlap one another. A double-board certified plastic surgeon, like Harvard-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Babak Azizzadeh, is someone who is double board certified. Plastic surgery is a specialty by itself, and also in conjunction with another area of specialty, such as ear, nose and throat surgery (otolaryngology).

A board-certified otolaryngologist, for example, can also be a certified plastic surgeon with the head and neck. Head and neck plastic surgery is a subspecialty of general plastic surgery. Consequently, there is a wide range of board-certified surgeons who specialize in different areas of medicine and practice as plastic and cosmetic surgeons.

If you are considering cosmetic facial surgery and you live in the Beverly Hills area of California, please contact Dr. Babak Azizzadeh today.
