Anyone Can Wear a White Coat, but Not Everyone Is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery

Dinora Rodriguez had breast implant surgery from a non-board-certified plastic surgeon and woke up horrified to learn that her implants were merged together. During the same procedure her previous doctor decided to operate on her eyes without her consent. Now Dinora can no longer close her eyes completely.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) is launching a new public safety campaign on the heels of a string of incidents involving plastic surgeries gone wrong during procedures performed by non-board-certified plastic surgeons.
