There are some surgeons that are NOT plastic surgeons. They claim to be board certified by the cosmetic society of surgery. However, their training is not extensive enough. This prevents them from having privileges at hospitals and/or accredited surgical facilities. Therefore, they have their own office surgery facilities. Usually, their prices are lower than the average. Be careful, your bargain procedure is at risk to become a potential nightmare. (click here to see if your provider is board certified).
