Dr Richard Lee - Southern California Plastic Surgeon


When looking for a cosmetic surgeon in Newport Beach or the greater Orange County area, it is sometimes difficult to sift through the mountain of information about plastic surgery and plastic surgeons on the web. It may be hard to believe, but just about anybody can open an office and call  themselves "Orange County cosmetic surgeons" or "Newport Beach plastic surgeons". They may not even be an M.D.!

Here is where you should start. In order to become a plastic surgeon, it takes 5-8 years of training in plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery at an accredited hospital or university medical center. This training takes place after the graduation from a 4-year medical school. Make sure that your plastic surgeon has been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the only organization recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties for certifying surgeons to perform cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery procedures. It takes at least two years of practicing the art and science of plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery before you can even be considered for certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Also, look for the "Symbol of Excellence" which indicates that your plastic surgeon is a proud member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
