Plastic Surgery: What You Need to Know About Certification.

A board-certified plastic surgeon has dedicated an average of sixteen years to advanced medical education and training – just the first step in achieving board certification as a plastic surgeon. Once the entire education and residency are completed, to become certified requires a lengthy and comprehensive two-day oral and written examination to evaluate scope of knowledge and understanding, ethical standing, and the physician’s approach to patient health and safety.

Who Can Perform Plastic Surgery?

Many other medical professionals offer cosmetic procedures, including MDs – who may market their practice as a “cosmetic surgery” practice, but have not undergone the extensive specialty training of a board certified plastic surgeon. If you are planning a cosmetic procedure, qualifications matter – in a big way. You want a result that you love, not a disaster that requires revision surgery. Dr. Malek, a board-certified plastic surgeon, is often called upon to repair poorly performed cosmetic surgeries. Always check for board certification as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon if you are planning a cosmetic procedure.

Extent of Hands-On Experience to Attain Board Certification

During training, a plastic surgeon is working full time, and spends about 3,000 hours of hands-on practice under the training and supervision of a senior, certified plastic surgeon who is overseeing all of their work. One indicator of lack of board certification as a plastic surgeon who offers a “cut-rate” deal, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Another indicator is that the medical professional offering cosmetic services who is not a board certified plastic surgeon will not have hospital privileges – almost all hospitals require plastic surgery procedures that are performed at their facility to be board certified reconstructive and plastic surgeons. Board certification is only awarded by the American Board of Plastic Surgery – no other group or entity with a similar-sounding name.

Board Certification and Scope of Knowledge

Surgeons who have completed the required residency for plastic and reconstructive surgery have the experience, knowledge, and surgical techniques to perform the most complex surgical procedures, including:

  • Facelifts
  • Nose jobs (rhinoplasty)
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Brow lift
  • Body lift
  • Tummy tuck
  • Arm lift
  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast lift
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast revision
  • Breast reconstruction

Did You Know? Not All Who Call Themselves Plastic Surgeons are Board Certified.

Unfortunately, there are many medical “boards,” and an MD can present themselves as a “plastic surgeon,” but have not gone through the extensive education and training of an actual board-certified plastic surgeon. You have the right to know the certification of a medical professional who offers a surgical procedure – just ask.

Types of Doctors

For a better understanding of the certification of a physician, the basics are as follows:

  • A licensed MD has been educated in some surgical techniques, but not even close to the extent of the training required to achieve board certification as a plastic surgeon.
  • A board-certified cosmetic surgeon is significantly different than a board certified plastic surgeon. Certification from the American Board of Medical Specialties does not issue certificates for “cosmetic surgery.” However, an MD is not violating the law by calling him or herself a “cosmetic surgeon.” The question is, does he or she have the experience, knowledge, and advanced techniques that will produce an excellent result?

Reconstruction &

Along with traditional breast enhancement surgeries, Dr. Malek is highly regarded for his skill in performing delicate revision and reconstruction procedures.

Many patients visit Dr. Malek’s office for the first time for help fixing the mistakes of their previous plastic surgeon. After a poorly performed augmentation, lift or reduction, a number of complications can arise. The implants can shift, ripple or appear visibly artificial, or the breasts can be uneven or positioned abnormally on the chest. In all of these cases, Dr. Malek will assess the situation, figure out exactly what went wrong, and devise a plan to fix the issue while creating the beautiful chest you wanted the first time around.

Dr. Malek is also very experienced in performing breast reconstruction surgeries for his patients. After the emotional, physical and psychological toll of a mastectomy, he can help you regain your identity, confidence and feminine figure after breast cancer. He will guide you through the process with the utmost compassion, helping you choose the right implant shape, size and type to ensure that your breasts are reconstructed exactly the way you want them.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 Learn More Virtual Consultation

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19


I am very pleased to inform you that we have been able to secure antibody testing for our patients in order to allow for elective procedures in compliance with AZ Dept of Health and Governor Ducey’s Executive order. We hope everyone understands the test is mandatory per the order.

Antibody tests are extremely scarce and range in cost from $ 75-400. Still, the mass majority are not FDA approved as of yet so we are using local experience by medical practices handling COVID-19 to ascertain the quality of the test we have chosen for our patients.

The test examines two Antibodies.

IgM-indicates a recent infection within 30 days.

IgG indicates conversion from a distant infection meaning you potentially have immunity.

Test Results:

If you test positive for IgM then your surgery will be delayed at least 30 days until clear by a retest.

Although the practice would like to provide these tests at no charge, due to the elective nature of our procedures we will not receive any from the Health Department or any government agency. I encourage all of our patients who are able to seek their own testing either at free community locations or through their practitioner if covered by insurance. Otherwise, we can provide an antibody test to all preop patients at our own cost of purchase ($75). Some may require a second test depending on the initial result. Once again it is a mandate per the health dept to obtain testing prior to any elective procedure at any and all surgical facilities in Arizona.

I and the entire staff at Preferred Plastic Surgery will continue to be devoted to your safety as our utmost priority.

Please review our practice protocol below for our reopening. I believe it is beyond comprehensive and likely to set the new standard of patient flow and care during these challenging times. It will reassure any and all of your concerns regarding your safety and reduction of all unnecessary exposure during your time in our facility.
