Millions have benefitted from breast augmentation procedures that utilize implants or fat transfer to not only enlarge breasts but also to improve their shape and position. Sometimes combined with breast lifts and other plastic surgeries, BHP’s leading board-certified plastic surgeons are here to provide the best possible outcomes.
A tummy tuck removes loose folds of skin as well as fatty tissue which can accumulate in the abdominal region. Often obtained to deal with the aftermath of a significant weight loss following a pregnancy or a successful weight loss surgery, this time-tested plastic surgery can replace rolls of loose skin fat with a beautifully contoured midsection.
Liposuction is currently the world’s most popular plastic surgery.* It targets stubborn pockets of body fat resistant to diet and exercise. As the name implies, this technique works by using a suction device to remove unwanted fat, which in some cases can be transferred to other parts of the body for a plastic surgeon to use in BBLs and breast augmentation.
Buttock augmentation – aka a Brazilian butt lift or BBL – has become incredibly popular as women pursue a more voluptuous posterior. Performed using unwanted body fat obtained from elsewhere in the body via liposuction, BBL plastic surgery consistently delights patients with results that look and feel amazingly natural.
A mommy makeover is a suite of plastic surgeries designed to deal with the unwanted aftereffects of pregnancy and childbirth. Mommy makeovers typically include tummy tucks, and liposuction for a flatter, tighter abdominal area, as well as breast augmentations and lifts in many cases. Our plastic surgeons know that moms deserve the very best and they deliver!
Rhinoplasty can alter the shape and size of the nose to flatter the patient’s facial appearance. Refined and improved over many decades, the venerable procedure we often call a nose job may be performed by a plastic surgeon for strictly cosmetic reasons but are also often part of procedures aimed at correcting deviated septums and other respiratory issues.

Question and Answers
Are a plastic surgeon and a cosmetic surgeon the same thing?
No. In fact, the difference is enormous.
Plastic surgeons have spent their lives training for one of the most difficult of all medical disciplines. After obtaining their undergraduate college degrees in pre-med programs, they must also do well on the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test) and be admitted to a four-year medical school.
During medical school, they must complete a minimum of three years – and often as many as four more years – of general surgery training. They must also pass intensive yearly examinations. Next, an aspiring plastic surgeon must finish two to three years of plastic surgery training. For many, this is in addition to special training as part of fellowships. This may add up to an additional decade of work.
Once they have completed their training successfully and can call themselves plastic surgeons, they apply to the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) to take a written exam over two days. After passing the written exam and a minimum of a year of practice, new plastic surgeons are eligible for another two-day examination. This time, it’s an oral examination exploring cases involving the new plastic surgeon’s own patients and conducted by many of the finest plastic surgeons now working. Just slightly over half of the applicants pass that exam. Those who succeed have become board-certified plastic surgeons. They are very often in their mid-thirties by this point.
On the other hand, any doctor with any type of medical training may take brief courses in areas such as facial rejuvenation, liposuction, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, or any other procedure and become a cosmetic surgeon. This means doctors from any specialty, such as gynecology, dermatology, or even pediatrics, can take a few courses and be allowed to call themselves cosmetic surgeons. They may often be in their mid-twenties.
Please note that a cosmetic surgeon is a legitimate physician and what they are doing is perfectly legal. However, they are not certified by the ABPS. In the opinion of most experts, they lack sufficient training to perform the most difficult cases; they may not be ready to handle unforeseen complications. A board-certified plastic surgeon is always the best choice for both safety and an attractive outcome.
How important is board certification for a plastic surgeon or bariatric surgeon?
When looking at any type of surgery, you should know if your physician is board certified and that’s definitely true for plastic surgery. While the specialty has picked up a glamorous and somewhat unserious reputation, the truth is that plastic surgery is very serious business. For a plastic surgeon, the board certification process described above requires doctors to rigorously prove their knowledge and judgment. To ensure they stay current, plastic surgeons are required to renew their credentials every ten years.
While weight loss surgeons take a different track, making sure they are board-certified and highly experienced is also vitally important – your gastrointestinal system is nothing to mess around with!
