Liposuction is a major cosmetic surgery procedure that can produce very favorable aesthetic outcomes if performed correctly in a customized manner. The choice of the liposuction surgeon is the single most crucial factor that will have an impact on the final outcome of the surgery.
Patients should evaluate the surgeon’s credentials and have a relationship of trust and open communication before committing to liposuction. Dr. Eugene Kim is a double board certified plastic surgeon providing liposuction to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding communities.
Board Certified and ASPS Member
The patient should ideally choose a surgeon who has a board certification in plastic surgery from the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). ABPS is the most authoritative certification board in the field of plastic and cosmetic surgery. Secondly, the surgeon should be a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
ASPS membership will ensure that the surgeon stays updated with the latest developments and innovations in the field. As a board certified surgeon from the ABPS, the surgeon will be required to follow rigorous quality standards, pursue continuing education, maintain the latest safety protocols, and adhere to the board’s guidelines while performing any procedure.
ABPS board certification in plastic surgery and a membership of ASPS automatically assures a patient that the surgeon would have:
- Graduated from an accredited medical school
- Passed comprehensive written and oral exams
- Completed a minimum of six years of surgical training following medical school with at least three years of focused training in plastic surgery
- Completed continuing medical education, including patient safety, on a yearly basis
- Affiliation with accredited, state licensed, or Medicare certified surgical facilities
Liposuction, like any plastic surgery procedure, is a personal journey for a patient. To achieve optimal outcomes, the patient should ideally have a relationship of trust and open communication with the surgeon, and share excellent vibes and rapport. This will help the patient to be clear and frank at every step, and enable the surgeon to understand the patient’s needs more closely.
The patient will feel comfortable and reassured throughout the process from the consultation to the actual surgery and recovery phase. This significantly contributes to the final outcome and the overall satisfaction levels of the patient.
