After a doctor graduates from medical school and completes his or her residency, they can obtain a permit from the state they live in to practice medicine. This permit proves that they have just enough training and are competent enough to treat patients. But if you had a choice between a plastic surgeon who had just enough training or extra training above and beyond the standard, wouldn’t you pick the doctor with more?
If you’re contemplating plastic surgery, there are many ways you can select a doctor. You can ask a friend who did her surgery and go to them. You can Google, “plastic surgeons near me” and pick the first doctor who pops up. You can even scour review sites like Yelp or Realself until you find a doctor who sounds good. These methods all work ok, but patients wanting a doctor with that extra training should check first to see if the plastic surgeon they’ve selected is board-certified.
“Board-certified plastic surgeons have not only met very demanding requirements in order to sit for their boards, but they have also successfully passed a written and a 2-day oral examination, being critically evaluated for their fund of knowledge, their ethical standing and their safe and effective approach to multiple reconstructive and cosmetic challenges. The American Board of Plastic Surgery aims to produce safe, ethical plastic surgeons with an extensive knowledge of the entire spectrum of plastic surgery, who are able to represent our specialty in the highest standards.” -From “The Importance of Choosing a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon” https://www.plasticsurgery.org/news/blog/the-importance-of-choosing-a-board-certified-plastic-surgeon
In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Dr. Paul Loewenstein has credentials that are second to none. Dr. Loewenstein was certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery in 1984 and recertified in 2003. He is also a member of several professional organizations including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the Milwaukee County Medical Society, among others. Dr. Loewenstein believes strongly in his obligations to his patients as a board-certified plastic surgeon.
“It is my responsibility as a physician to obey the admonition “first do not harm;” and to advise my patients what is best for them. This involves listening and thinking and then applying my knowledge to their particular situation. . . .I do feel an obligation to maintain my skills and update them by attending plastic surgery meetings and symposia. We will always try to apply the latest technology that is both proven effective and safe. ” -Dr. Paul Loewenstein
Your “plastic surgeons near me” internet search may give you results for many board-certified and experienced doctors, but those plastic surgeons may or may not have the skills required to meet your specific plastic surgery goals. When it comes to breast augmentation, many women want to seek out a plastic surgeon who has extensive expertise in performing these surgeries to deliver them the best results.
“Of course a woman should seek out a board-certified plastic surgeon, preferably one who does a fair number of breast augmentations in their practice. He or she should have an open approach to different types of breast implants.” -Dr. Paul Loewenstein
The Importance of Board Certification for Breast Augmentation Procedures
A board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience performing breast augmentations should be able to explain to you the advantages and risks for each type of breast implant on the market today. They should know which specific implant is right for you and your anatomy. When you go in for your consultation with Dr. Loewenstein, he will spend generous amounts of time with you explaining silicone gel implants, saline implants, and IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants.
“Dr. Loewenstein literally is one of the most fascinating, sweet, knowledgeable, talented and friendly humans I am blessed to know. He is so easy to talk to and he truly listens while never trying to rush me through a convo. And believe me, I tend to babble a lot! He certainly is very patient with me 🙂 I planned on shopping around for surgeons, however my consult with Dr. L. was my first and final consult. I knew instantly after meeting with him that he was the one. To say he is “just” a plastic surgeon is an understatement. Dr. L. is an artist whose talent and gift is amazing! I will recommend him to any and everyone I know who is considering a procedure 🙂 He even sent beautiful flowers to my house the week after surgery. So very thoughtful!” -Realself review from thatgirl1234321
