12 Things You Should Know Before Having Plastic Surgery (Part 8 of 12)
8. Continuing Education and Specialty Training – Confirm that your surgeon is up to date on his continuing education and safety practices. If he is certified correctly with the American Board of Plastic Surgery, he will be up to date on continuing education and safety practices.
A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, like Dr. Aguiar, must go through at least 50 hours of training a year to stay certified. It’s critical that your surgeon stays on the leading edge. If he’s not getting this training, you don’t want to be his patient.
Dr. Aguiar attends trainings and educational courses throughout each year. He often doubles or triples the required 50 hours.
Dr. Aguiar values his education and training and wants to provide each patient with the latest, most technically advanced, but safe surgical options.
