Top Rated Plastic Surgeons

What does it mean to be Top Rated? Plastic surgeons listed on this website who display the Top Rated Plastic Surgeon seal are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, vetted by a rigorous background check, and are continually monitored by patient surveys.

Our Top Rated Plastic Surgeon seal is their endorsement.

Most people don't realize that any physician can call themselves a cosmetic surgeon, but only doctors who are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) can distinguish themselves as board-certified plastic surgeons. There are a variety of organizations offering certifications for cosmetic and plastic surgery, but only the ABPS is approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) to certify medical doctors in plastic surgery from head to toe. In order to become board-certified in plastic surgery by the ABPS, a physician must hold a valid medical license in the state where they actively practice and have:

  • Graduated from an accredited medical school
  • Completed at least a three-year residency in general surgery
  • Completed at least a two-year residency in plastic surgery
  • Passed comprehensive written and oral board examinations

Only physicians certified by the ABPS are eligible to receive the Top Rated seal, as they have met the most stringent requirements which include extensive surgical education, passing regulated comprehensive exams and adhering to a strict code of ethical conduct.

But board certification alone isn't enough. Before surgeons receive the Top Rated seal, they have to pass a rigorous background check. In addition to making sure no malpractice judgment cases are listed against the surgeon's medical license, 1800mySurgeon checks all professional references, credentials and board certifications. The board-certified plastic surgeons that have been pre-screened by 1800mySurgeon make up a distinguished class of medical professionals.

Once surgeons receive the Top Rated seal, they still need to maintain their high level of professionalism and patient care. At 1800mySurgeon, we understand that patient satisfaction is the hallmark of an excellent plastic surgeon. That's why we don't just rely on boards and other medical professionals to endorse our plastic surgeons. Once a board-certified plastic surgeon has earned the Top Rated seal, they are continually monitored through patient surveys and follow up inquiries.

1800mySurgeon is dedicated to making your plastic surgery experience successful. Having confidence in your plastic surgeon will give you the peace of mind you need to focus on your goals, your surgery and your recovery. Knowing that your plastic surgeon is board-certified, competent and recommended can also give your family and loved ones the assurance they need that your health and safety are the most important priorities.
