There are hundreds of surgeons who offer aesthetic procedures in the Los Angeles area. And while your selection should be based on a number of personal factors, one thing that should be consistent in your search is an absolute insistence on board-certification.

Anyone with a medical degree can use the title “cosmetic surgeon.” Only those who are board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) can call themselves plastic surgeons. Without this certification, you may be trusting your body, facial, or breast surgery to someone with no formal training or real-life experience.

Board-certification by the ABPS requires all pre-requisites for a medical license be met in addition to residencies and fellowships in aesthetic surgery, schooling and training requirements, the passing of written and oral exams, and a panel review of all procedural results for the first six months of private practice. Unless these and strict ethical requirements are met, a surgeon cannot get certified by the ABPS.

Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole is board-certified by the ABPS and a fellow in the American College of Surgeons. He welcomes an opportunity to meet with you free of charge to discuss your aesthetic concerns, detail all of your options, and begin the process of helping you reach your cosmetic goals.
