O ok, yea thats what I thought. I just saw this guy http://www.lookingyourbest.com/surgeons/about/fforouzanpour and it made me curious.maxheadroom said:A "Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship" is a FRAUD for anyone who is not board-eligible in Plastic Surgery or the Facial Plastics/ENTs. No, a general surgeon who completed a "Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship" would not be able to perform the majority of cases done in PRS. Furthermore, there is no true "Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship" -- especially not for general surgeons. There are a few high-volume cosmetic centers where BE/BC Plastic Surgeons will do extra training (mini-fellowships) in various cosmetic procedures. Notable "Cosmetic Fellowships" are Paces in Atlanta, Baker/Stuzin in Miami, UTSW/Barton in Dallas, and Aston in NYC.
Thats true, but I don't think most patients really know what those credentials mean.maxheadroom said:Please note that he has no credentials from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons or the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
A lot more then you'd think. The margin for error of unacceptable results is MUCH higher with aesthetics (particularly of the face) & the customers/patients frequently have unrealistic expectations. You can really mess someone up bad doing cosmetic surgery & technique is so very important for predictable outcomes.AMMD said:But here is my question: A lot of these aesthetic procedures are minimaly invasive so really, how much training do you need to get good at it?
