  1. Is he/she certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?
  2. Is he/she a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons?
  3. Is he/she trained specifically in the field of plastic surgery?
  4. How many years of plastic surgery does he/she have?
  5. Where does he/she have hospital privileges and how far away are these hospitals from your surgical center?
  6. Is the office based surgical facility accredited by a nationally or state recognized accrediting agency?
