SALT LAKE CITY, Utah(News4Utah) Did you know plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery are actually different? Dr. Robert Rodrigues, a certified plastic surgeon at Granger Medical Clinic, joined Nicea DeGering, to explain the differences, and explain some important things to know before getting any surgery.

Dr. Rodrigues says a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is the only one who can perform procedures like a facelift, at a hospital facility vs. an outside office. 

Before jumping into any plastic surgery, there are certain questions that you need to ask.

The number 1 thing Dr. Rodrigues recommends is to do your research. You can search any physician on the Department of Professional Licensing. If their training is Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Rodrigues says you’re pretty safe. If their specialties are ENT or Oral Surgeon, you want to be sure they went on to an accredited fellowship training.

The most common procedures in Utah are Liposuction and Breast Augmentation.
