Why not go to Internist, Obstetricians, Gynecologists, Dentist, Primary Care Physician and “cosmetologists” for facial implants for MEN face plastic surgery?

Practitioners like Internist and other doctors who are not formally residency-trained and Board Certified to perform Otoplasty for MEN have been found to suffer a much higher rate of complications, as it’s a side interest to them, and not a treatment they’re certified to do all day long. One of the most common complaints is minimal improvement, asymmetries, etc.

Only a licensed professional with the knowledge, training and skills required to achieve optimum results should perform Otoplasty for MEN or plastic surgery to correct protruding ears. Look for a plastic surgeon who is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who has completed his training at some of the top residency and fellowship institutions.
