What Is the Difference Between Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeons?

Any doctor can perform a cosmetic procedure. Primary care physicians, dermatologists, and even emergency room doctors may take a weekend class and start offering treatments like Botox, breast augmentation, or liposuction. Of course, these doctors lack the training and experience to provide the best aesthetic results. If you’re planning cosmetic surgery, make sure you choose a board-certified plastic surgeon to perform your procedure.

Why Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons Are the Best Choice for Cosmetic Surgery

Any doctor can offer cosmetic treatments, but to become a board-certified plastic surgeon, it takes years of training and experience. Board certification is reserved for the top doctors in a specific medical field, doctors that have demonstrated their knowledge, skill, ability, and commitment to excellence. At a minimum, a board-certified surgeon has at least 3 years of training in plastic surgery as well as 5 years in general surgery training. Many board-certified plastic surgeons far exceed this minimum. At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, we understand the value of board certification, and each of our surgeons is board-certified by at least one medical board.

  • Christopher L. McLendon, M.D.- Dr. McLendon holds board certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology. He is also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
  • Roy Powell, M.D., F.A.C.S.- Dr. Roy Powell is double board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, a distinction he has held for more than 25 years. He is also a former Chief of Plastic Surgery at the Medical Center of Central Georgia.
  • Paul John Syribeys, M.D., F.A.C.S.-Dr. Paul John Syribeys is Middle Georgia’s leading microvascular surgeon. He is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons and the American Board of Surgery. He also completed a prestigious fellowship training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Emory University.

Our surgeons know what they are doing, have extensive training and experience in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, and have the experience necessary to produce the best possible results from your procedure. With a board-certified plastic surgeon, you know that your surgeon is one of the best-qualified plastic surgeons available.
