Utah plastic surgeons remind patients to check out doctors

The Utah Plastic Surgery Society is running billboards reminding patients to ensure their doctor is board-certified in plastic surgery before getting cosmetic or reconstructive procedures. Increasingly, doctors who are board-certified in other specialties, such as dentistry or OB-GYN, are offering cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries. "A lot of these doctors will go to a cosmetic boot camp, learn the procedures, come back on Monday morning, and they're doing them," plastic surgeon Grant Fairbanks said.
