5 Tips When Considering Plastic Surgery in Utah

The first and most important thing when considering plastic surgery in Utah is finding a qualified, experienced, and trusted board certified surgeon. There are many options in Utah when it comes to non-invasive and invasive procedures, and finding someone you can trust with your body is key in a positive and safe surgical outcome.

How to find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Utah

One of the best ways to find plastic surgeons near you is to use Connect by American Society of Plastic Surgeons, ASPS

Dr. Crofts has over 25 years of experience in the field of plastic surgery, and is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Utah through the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Dr. Crofts is also an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), and is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

What does it mean to be a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?

A board certification is an extra step physicians choose to take to better understand the latest advancements in their specialty. A Plastic Surgery Board Certification is a significant achievement, and it means that the physician is an expert in their specialty, is skilled and knowledgeable, and meets a higher standard in their specialty. 

The American Board of Plastic Surgery is the only plastic surgery board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), which is the leading organization overseeing physician certification in the United States. The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery is not recognized by ABMS, so when considering a surgeon for your cosmetic needs it is important to find someone with experience and certification from The American Board of Plastic Surgery, not cosmetic surgery. 

The path to becoming a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is a rigorous one. After finishing medical school, a plastic surgeon has to finish their residency in general surgery, then after their residency in general surgery they will begin a post-residency training in plastic surgery, which is then followed by a board exam. Continuing education every 3 years, and a recertification every 10 years, is required for all Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Crofts is also the President of the Utah State Plastic Surgery Society.

Let me start by saying EVERYONE in Dr. Crofts practice is genuine, kind, and has made my experience feel safe and comfortable. I feel like they personally care about my results, opinion and recovery. They call to check in, listen to my questions and give me honest answers. This is my second surgery with Dr. Crofts office, and both times I've had clear explanations, follow ups, and my expectations were beyond met. He's detailed, as well as a perfectionist, which means you will get the right results, and in both my case's, these surpassed my expectations.

Preparing for a consultation for plastic surgery in Utah

When booking a consultation, make sure to plan ahead, because it is common to have a plastic surgeon be booked a few months out. This is generally due to a plastic surgeon’s experience, knowledge, trustworthiness, and popularity. Remember, it will be worth the wait because of the transformative results you will achieve post-surgery.

Prior to your consultation, look at the before and after plastic surgery photos on your plastic surgeon’s website. Next, identify your problem areas and what results you wish to achieve. You and the plastic surgeon can then put together a plan during your consultation to address your concerns and expectations. Additionally, have a list of questions prepared to ask your plastic surgeon. (Click here for a list of questions to ask your plastic surgeon during your consultation.) Lastly, have your complete medical history prepared for the surgeon so he can safely recommend procedures during your physical examination.
