“Dr. Houser is a wonderful plastic surgeon. I have gone to him for several procedures. It is obvious from his careful attention to detail and from the amount of time that he spends with his patients that he does not try to do the most plastic surgery in Columbus but strives to do the best. If you are looking for beautiful, natural-looking results, go to Dr. Houser.”

Did you know?
One of the most common concerns about having plastic surgery is that “everyone will know” or “it won’t look natural.” Dr. Houser understands these concerns and his preference is toward natural looking results, too. Many of Dr. Houser’s patients tell us that after their procedures, friends and family tell them that they “look rested” or think that “they’ve lost weight” but they usually don’t guess that they’ve had cosmetic surgery!
Not all physicians performing plastic / cosmetic surgery in the Columbus, Ohio area are board certified in plastic surgery. Why is it important to choose a plastic surgeon who is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS) and board certified in plastic surgery?
An ASPS member plastic surgeon has fulfilled the following requirements:
- Has at least five years of surgical training and a minimum of two years of plastic surgery training.
- Is board-certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery or The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
- Is trained and experienced in all plastic surgery procedures, including breast, body, face and reconstruction.
- Is peer-reviewed for safety and ethical standards prior to attaining the honor of active membership.
- Only operates in accredited facilities.
Why is it important to choose a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?
Many physicians who perform cosmetic procedures will claim board certification, but it is important to clarify which board. The American Board of Plastic Surgery is a part of the American Board of Medical Specialties and has been in existence since 1937. Certification by this board signifies that the surgeon has completed an approved plastic surgery residency, has passed a comprehensive written examination, and has passed an oral examination. Following this, he or she is then required to maintain certification through case submissions, continuing medical education and written examinations. This rigorous process ensures that those who identify themselves as a diplomat of the American Board of Plastic Surgery are held to the highest standards of patient safety, patient satisfaction and ethical behavior.
