Consider the following factors when evaluating a cosmetic surgeon:
- Board certification. Just about any medical specialist can call him or herself a cosmetic surgeon. On the other hand, someone like Dr. Basner who has been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery has met strict credential requirements, including having completed training specifically in the area of cosmetic and plastic surgery.
- Where education and training was received. Your cosmetic surgeon should possess an educational background that focused on plastic surgery. Dr. Basner completed his undergraduate degree at the highly regarded University of Pennsylvania and received his medical degree from the prestigious Columbia University. After that, he completed a surgical residency at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center and a plastic surgery fellowship at New York University Medical Center. He also received specialized training at the Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital.
- Experience and skill. How many years has your cosmetic surgeon been practicing? How long has he or she been performing the procedure in which you are interested? For nearly two decades Dr. Basner has focused his practice on providing state-of-the-art cosmetic and plastic surgery.
- Results that can be demonstrated. Your cosmetic surgeon should be able to present before & after photos of past patients so you can see the results he or she is capable of achieving.
