About PENTA Facial Plastic Surgery Center

In this day and age, many physicians and other healthcare providers are venturing into the realm of cosmetic medicine and surgery. This introductory page describes the qualifications, background, and training of the surgeons of the PENTA Facial Plastic Surgery Center.

When considering facial plastic surgery find out if your doctors are members of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) and have privileges to perform procedures at the local hospitals and ambulatory centers.

AAFPRS surgeons perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face, head and neck only. Training includes one or two years of post-graduate training in general surgery residency and at least four additional years of specialty training in head and neck surgery and facial plastic surgery. Some physicians choose an additional intensive one-year fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. They are board certified by boards recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and may also be certified by American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery (ABFPRS).

Most cosmetic plastic surgery is performed in PENTA’s Winston-Salem office surgical suite. The surgical suite is designed to accommodate its cosmetic plastic surgery patients’ needs and includes a specially trained surgical team.
