How get more information about the Plastic Surgeon
There are two ways to search the internet and check if the doctor is really a plastic surgeon specialist.
1Initially, with the doctor's name or number of your CRM, anyone can enter the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery website and easily check if the doctor is properly registered. The absence of records indicates no errors, the doctor is not an expert.
2Other research is being done on the site Cremepe. This registration must be observed if there is a record of Plastic Surgery and the medical condition is "Active". The importance of this research is given by the fact that medical specialists - attending Resident in Plastic Surgery - may be registered in the SBCP, but are still not able to register in the specialty Council. In this case, experts are not even.
