Qualifications and Experience

Qualifications and experience are the two most important factors when choosing a plastic surgeon. A surgeon should be qualified for the procedure they are performing, a Specialist FRCS in plastic surgery, for example. Ongoing training is also essential to ensure skills are up to date.

Next, potential patients should check their surgeon is registered with BAAPS, who regulate and manage plastic surgery standards. General Medical Council registration is also essential.

Finally, but no less important is experience. The longer a surgeon has practised, the more track record a patient can check. This offers reassurance the surgeon has the necessary skills to perform the surgery.
