The person who wrote this article obviously hasn’t read your blog. He does highlight several areas that you’ve talked about before. One of the ones that stands out to me is that the American Board of Laser Surgery certifies nurses, veterinarians, and oral surgeons in laser surgery through a take-home written exam. I was thinking I would be safer with a board certified laser tech but now I’m thinking it’s a toss up.
Funny you should refer to that piece. A few years back I was mis-quoted on such a Smart Money “Ten Things Plastic Surgeons Won’t Tell You” article. They must do them periodically.
The point of this blog has always been to inform people how plastic surgery can be approached to maximize the good and limit the bad. The basic tone of this Smart Money piece (and the one in which I was quoted years ago) is that most plastic surgeons are trying to dupe the consumer. I do not work this way.
