According to a report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) in 2019, there were 18.1 million cosmetic procedures and 16.3 million minimally invasive procedures performed in the US.
Not all surgeons are qualified enough to perform plastic surgery. Whether you’re planning a cosmetic or reconstructive surgery, it is essential to find the right plastic surgeon for your operation. Here are the qualifications that you need to consider when looking for the best plastic surgeon for your needs:
A qualified plastic surgeon must have a board certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). The certification ensures that the physician has met the safety requirements and equipped with the necessary medical skills in performing plastic surgery.
Choose a plastic surgeon who specializes and has many years of experience in the type of surgery you plan to get. Doctors who specialize in the desired surgeries achieve the best results for those patients.
Another important criterion for the best plastic surgeon is their reputation. Their qualification doesn’t stop with the number of surgeries they have performed, but it’s the number of satisfied patients.
You may also like to visit the facility or clinic of the surgeon that you wish to consider. The clinic must be accredited; meaning, they must practice the highest standards for safety and must be able to provide quality patient care. The staff should be accommodating and welcoming enough for the patients to feel comfortable and at ease. Dr. Singh is licensed in Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC and practices at Sibley, INOVA, and Reston Hospitals.
Understands your needs
Your initial consultation will help you decide on whether to continue with the service or look for another plastic surgeon. Surgery is not a one size fits all, the best plastic surgeon should be able to customize the treatment or service provided to fit your needs.

To maintain a board-certification, the doctor must continue ongoing medical education to keep up with the latest techniques, devices, and medications as they emerge. The doctor must maintain a license to practice medicine and maintain credentials and privileges in a hospital. It’s like a periodic check-up on the doctor’s ability and skills.
