Understand that legally, any physician could do any procedure. A general practitioner or an OB/GYN could do a breast reduction, however, he or she will not have the same level of specialized plastic surgery training or experience that board-certified plastic surgeons have.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 26, 2017
With over 20 years of experience in the plastic surgery field and a double board-certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Mark Deutsch, MD, founder and medical director of Perimeter Plastic Surgery in Atlanta, has earned a well-deserved reputation for being one of the most trusted plastic surgeons in the region. With that, he has increasingly been receiving positive attention in the media.
Atlanta Magazine named Dr. Deutsch a “Top Doctor” in 2016 and 2017, and included a full-page physician profile about him in the August 2017 issue. A writer with The Atlantan Modern Luxury interviewed Dr. Deutsch for a feature article this past year. The September 2016 edition of The Atlantan listed Dr. Deutsch as an “American Top 10 Doctor.” Most recently, The Who's Who in Medicine and Healthcare 2016 – 2017 included Dr. Deutsch in its prestigious directory of physicians.
“I am very honored for all of the positive publicity,” Dr. Deutsch says. “This type of media attention demonstrates that hard work and putting patients first is noticed and appreciated by those who use our services. Ultimately, our patients’ well-being and outcomes are our number one priority, and what’s being printed in these publications is a wonderful reflection of that goal.”
Dr. Deutsch specializes in plastic and reconstructive surgeries. He regularly performs breast reconstruction for breast cancer patients, as well as cosmetic surgeries such as breast augmentation, abdominoplasty, breast lifts and liposuction.
Why It’s Important to Select a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
One topic that often comes up when Dr. Deutsch speaks with those in the media is the importance of using a board-certified plastic surgeon. In fact, this was the subject he was interviewed about for the 2017 article in The Atlantan.
“Sometimes it may be tempting to select a physician who is not board-certified because he or she may offer lower rates than a board-certified plastic surgeon, but this is rarely a good idea,” says Dr. Deutsch. “Understand that legally, any physician could do any procedure. A general practitioner or an OB/GYN could do a breast reduction, however, he or she will not have the same level of specialized plastic surgery training or experience that board-certified plastic surgeons have.”
Dr. Deutsch recommends patients choose a plastic surgeon who is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. The American Board of Piastic Surgery is the only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties to govern plastic surgeons.
“By going with a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, you know he or she has completed three to five years of training in general surgery and a minimum of two to three years of training in plastic surgery, plus he or she has undergone rigorous oral and written testing,” notes Dr. Deutsch. “You will have peace of mind, knowing you are in experienced and qualified hands.”
