Brand Name List

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) protects your health by assuring the safety and effectiveness of drugs and medical devices. The agency does this by requiring manufacturers of drugs and devices to perform rigorous scientific testing and reporting. Many procedures today have brand names. But a brand name being advertised doesn't always ensure FDA approval. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons offers the following list of FDA approved and cleared brand name procedures and treatments that will help you to make informed decisions about the many options available.
