A general surgeon may be granted privileges by some hospitals. Most avoid this issue by performing it in their office. Unfortunately, the majority of these physicians are not formally trained in plastic surgery and specifically liposuction. In fact, any physician can claim to be a plastic surgeon or perform liposuction. Weekend courses are not a substitute for formal training in residency in any area of medicine. When seeking a physician for liposuction, look for board certification in plastic surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
