The Importance of Board Certification

When placing your appearance and wellbeing in the hands of a plastic surgeon, it is critical to feel confident in your surgeon’s skill and credentials. Dr. Chalekson is a board-certified plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). This important distinction signifies Dr. Chalekson’s completion of specialized training, extensive testing, continuing education and demonstrated-excellence in the field of plastic surgery. To earn certification from the ABPS, a doctor must:

  • Graduate from an accredited medical school
  • Complete at least five years of clinical general surgery residency training
  • Complete a residency in plastic surgery
  • Complete both oral and written ABPS examinations
  • Submit a year’s worth of cases and exhibit proven, consistent results

At Charles Chalekson MD, Inc., we value the beauty of individuality and develop fully-customized treatment plans based on your unique goals and physical attributes.

Our Commitment to You

Plastic surgery is about more than altering your physical attributes; it is about transforming the way you see yourself and the feelings you have when you look in the mirror. Too many plastic surgery practices see cosmetic procedures as transactional events. Dr. Chalekson firmly believes that plastic surgery is a journey that should be taken only with a board-certified plastic surgeon you trust – not only someone you trust to deliver outstanding results, but an ethical partner on your journey who you can trust to take a personal investment in your successful outcome and wellbeing.

Dr. Chalekson does not measure success by the number of surgeries he performs each year, but by the satisfaction of his patients and the quality of their results. He is committed to treating you as a person, not just a collection of symptoms and problem areas. When you visit our state-of-the-art facility, you will receive the highest levels of quality, service, honesty and compassion. This is our commitment to you.
