Five Useful Tips for Selecting a Surgeon

Check Credentials

In Dallas, only plastic surgeons recognized by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) can be members of the Board Certified Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeons of Dallas, of which Dr. Byrd is a member. To find out if a doctor is board certified, search for a surgeon at the ABPS website or use the Find a Surgeon tool at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) website (

Check Hospital Privileges

Even though your procedure may be performed in a Dallas physician’s plastic surgery office, always find out whether your cosmetic surgeon has privileges in a local hospital (and at which hospitals). Hospital privileges mean that the physicians at that particular hospital have reviewed and approved the doctor’s qualifications for that particular procedure.

Check Backgrounds

Review the surgeon’s curriculum vitae (resume), and review the surgeon’s member biographies at related organizations. If the surgeon is certified by a certifying body other than the ABPS, check to see if that specific board is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS).

Check a Second Opinion

It can afford you great peace of mind, and is advisable when considering any kind of elective surgery. Once you’ve selected a plastic surgeon in Dallas or Fort Worth, you will be dependent on that individual’s experience, ability, and judgment. Make sure the professionalism of his office and staff is in keeping with your expectations.
