Now, more than ever, the public is looking for the best deal for the cheapest price. But “Buyer Beware” if you are assessing cosmetic surgery procedures by price alone. You may very well be compromising quality care and quality results for that cheaper price point. When researching cosmetic surgery procedures in which you are interested, your first step should be to evaluate the credentials of the surgeons with whom you plan to consult with about the procedure. It is important to be sure that your surgeon is a member in good standing of a professional society such as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and thus would be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. ASPS members operate ONLY in accredited medical facilities and adhere to a strict code of ethics. In addition, members must participate in ongoing continuing medical education and take stringent re-certification exams at set intervals throughout their careers.
In line with the above criteria for choosing a plastic surgeon, Dr. Delia is board-certified and utilizes the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art cosmetic surgical procedures and techniques. Dr. Delia also performs cosmetic surgery in a fully accredited, freestanding AAAASF surgicenter.Surgicenters like this provide patients with the safety of a hospital setting coupled with the comfort and individualized care of a privately owned facility. But despite what choice you ultimately make in choosing a surgeon, remember to do your homework, have realistic expectations, and consider choosing an ASPS member to perform your surgery.
