to assist patients in finding board certified, experienced breast implants surgeons in their geographic area, enabling patients to search with confidence
Culver City, CA (PRWEB) February 13, 2009
Plastic surgeons in the United States, citing safety and ethical guidelines, recently refused to perform a ninth breast augmentation surgery on a patient who had previously undergone eight breast enlargement procedures. The patient's aspiration to achieve world record-breaking breast implants led her to seek surgeons practicing outside of the United States and away from U.S. health and safety regulations. This event spotlights the high quality patient care and standards of those Breast Augmentation Surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and featured on Breast Implants USA.
"Breast Implants USA fully supports this decision by surgeons who were working in the interest of patient safety," said David Phillips, President and CEO of NKP Medical Marketing, parent company of BreastImplantsUSA.com. "It is because of the training and experience required for certification by the ABPS that Breast Implants USA only features these highly-qualified Board Certified Plastic Surgeons."
The ABPS, whose mission is to promote safe, ethical plastic surgery to the public by maintaining high standards for plastic surgeons, affirms that its certified plastic surgeons are first and foremost health care professionals, bound by the standards of their medical profession. Women in the United States considering Breast Augmentation surgery can achieve safe and natural-looking results by working with surgeons who have attained this certification.
"By featuring surgeons with the training and experience required for ABPS certification," Mr. Phillips continued, "Breast Implants USA provides women considering breast augmentation surgery access to the most experienced and qualified plastic surgeons."
Phillips specifically cited the Ask an Expert feature as a quick, direct way for a patient to access surgeons in her geographical area. "You simply ask any plastic surgery-related question you have, and your message will be sent to an ABPS Certified Surgeon in your area."
The Ask an Expert feature at Breast Implants USA can be found online at: Ask Breast Augmentation Surgeons Your Questions.
Additionally, Breast Implants USA features a Plastic Surgeon Locator tool "to assist patients in finding board certified, experienced breast implants surgeons in their geographic area, enabling patients to search with confidence," added Phillips.
Regarding the patient who traveled overseas to avoid the health and safety requirements upheld by her U.S. Plastic Surgeons, Phillips simply stated, "Patient safety is our number one concern, and our surgeons believe in patient education. Any surgery is a serious matter requiring informed decisions, and our aim at Breast Implants USA is to make it possible for patients to get the most up-to-date information from surgeons in the top of their field."
