When you are researching plastic surgeons in your area, the first quality you should always look for is board certification. When a surgeon has been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, it means they have undergone rigorous surgical training and completed an extensive residency program that proves they are capable of performing plastic surgery above and beyond what is expected from a general surgeon.

Many plastic surgeons seek out additional certification in a surgical specialty after receiving their initial board certification. For example, Dr. Harrell has been certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology in addition to the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This means he has proven his ability to perform surgery on some of the most delicate and complex areas of the body: the head, nose, neck, ears, and throat.

Plastic surgery is a serious decision. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon will make all the difference in the safety of your procedure, and the quality of your final results. Don’t settle for anything less. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Harrell has over 24 years of experience helping people throughout Florida achieve their cosmetic goals and re-gain their self confidence.
