Choosing a Certified Physician

What does it mean to be a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?

As the popularity of plastic surgery has increased over the past several years, more and more providers are trying to get involved in the specialty of plastic surgery. The topic of board certification can be challenging to sort through as a patient. A patient who finds that their doctor is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery can be assured that he or she has undergone the proper training in plastic surgery, passed the demanding plastic surgical examination process and continues to practice in a high level of ethical standards.

Dr. David Robbins and Des Moines Plastic Surgery™ are an elite group stowing certification through all four Cosmetic Boards. In fact, very few surgeons in the United States are certified by all four Boards. Dr. Robbins is the only quadruple board certified plastic surgeon in the state of Iowa.

Dr. Robbins maintains certification in the following Boards:

The American Board of Plastic Surgery

The American Board of Plastic Surgery is considered the gold standard for practicing plastic surgeons. Dr. Robbins obtained his certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery in 2003 and became recertified in 2014 as a requirement for Maintenance of Certification every ten years. Dr. Robbins is also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the largest organization of Board Certified Plastic Surgeons in the United States.

The American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Established in 1986, the ABFPRS is dedicated to improving the quality of facial plastic surgery available to the public by measuring the qualifications of candidate surgeons against certain rigorous standards.

Although Des Moines Plastic Surgery™ is not limited to facial plastics, Dr. Robbins elected to take this additional specialty board certification in reflection of his interest and volume of surgical cases involving facial plastic surgery. Dr. Robbins has been board certified by the ABFPRS since 2006. In 2015 Dr. Robbins completed recertification by successfully completing a rigorous written and oral examination as part of the Maintenance of Certification by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery

Dr. Robbins serves as a Diplomat of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. Today, the ABCS has become the premier board for examining an elite few of surgeons across the United States in strictly cosmetic surgery, which is unlike any other board. Dr. Robbins chose to become Board Certified by the ABCS in order to show his commitment to education, training, and to exemplify and differentiate his practice of cosmetic surgery from any other in Iowa. Dr. Robbins and Des Moines Plastic Surgery™ have and continue to set the standard for Board Certification and cosmetic surgery in Iowa.

The American Board of Cosmetic Laser Surgery

Dr. Robbins also serves as a Diplomat of the American Board of Cosmetic Laser Surgery. The ABLS is the only medical specialty board worldwide devoted to the use of lasers in surgery and medicine. Dr. Robbins saw the need to become Board certified by the ABLS, and has been at the forefront of Cosmetic Laser Surgery at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™ and Coachlight Clinic & Spa here in Iowa.

The American Board of Laser Surgery was founded in 1984 by physicians and other medical practitioners from various fields experienced in the basic science and clinical applications of lasers. They share a concern for the safety and efficacious use of lasers in medicine and surgery. They believe the increasing complexity and utilization of lasers in treating patients has created a need for the establishment of minimum standards of knowledge, competence, and experience for those who use lasers in the health sciences. Dr. Robbins recognized that lasers are sophisticated instruments requiring special knowledge and experience for safe, effective use in surgery and therapy.

No other organization other than the ABLS offers board credentialing in laser science, laser safety and cosmetic procedures in medicine and surgery. Dr. Robbins is currently the only Board Certified Diplomat of the ABLS in the state of Iowa.

It’s important to have choices! But too many choices can start to feel overwhelming. Remembering these 4 S’s can help guide your decision and discussion with your plastic surgeon:

1) Silicone vs Saline
2) Size
3) Surgical Incision
4) Selection
...

Real Women. Real Results.
Jenn @where_is_jenn decided to have a breast augmentation when she was in her twenties. But after 7 years, she wasn’t satisfied with the aesthetic results so she opted to have a breast revision. This time she did her research to get the fit that was just right for her. Jenn chose Natrelle INSPIRA® Cohesive “enhanced fullness” breast implants for a fuller look with more roundness on top.
...

Dessiree always felt flat chested growing up. She worried about how her breasts would look in different outfits and didn’t feel comfortable without a push-up bra.

After a lot of consideration, she found a plastic surgeon who recommended Natrelle INSPIRA® Cohesive Breast Implants for the look she wanted.

Now Dessiree considers her choice to get breast augmentation “one of the best decisions” she’s ever made.

What about you? If her before picture looks like your body shape and her after picture looks like the results you want, snap a pic and share it with during your consultation.

For more than 30 years, the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS) has been dedicated to excellence in the medical specialty of cosmetic surgery and committed to providing the highest standard of care to our patients.

As the only certifying board that exclusively tests a surgeon’s knowledge and experience in cosmetic surgery, ABCS board certification is reserved for extraordinary surgeons who already possess at least one recognized board certificate, complete a comprehensive AACS certified fellowship training program in cosmetic surgery, and pass rigorous written and oral exams. In reality, many cosmetic or plastic surgeons do not qualify to take the ABCS board exam because of the very strict qualifications they must meet.

Dr. Robbins is Board Certified by the ABCS and has been since 2013.

The American Board of Laser Surgery (ABLS) was founded in 1984 by physicians, physicists and other medical practitioners from various fields who were experienced in the fundamental science and clinical applications of lasers. They shared a concern for the safe and efficacious use of lasers in medicine and surgery. They believed that the increasing complexity and utilization of lasers in treating patients had created a need for the establishment of key standards of knowledge, competence, and experience for those who used lasers in medicine.

Many individual physicians, hospital administrators, chairmen of credentialing committees, and other concerned persons expressed a desire for an organization that would fulfill these needs. In doing so, they recognized that lasers are sophisticated instruments requiring special knowledge and experience for safe and effective use in surgery and other medical procedures.

From the very beginning of the era of lasers in clinical use, iatrogenic, laser-related injuries and deaths were occurring among patients. This was the incentive for the founding of the American Board of Laser Surgery. Today, deaths are rare, but burns, complications and sub-optimal outcomes are still all too common.

The Mission of the ABLS is to educate and credential as many qualified laser and light practitioners as possible to ensure the efficacious and safe outcomes for patients.


Dr. Robbins is certified by the ABLS in Cosmetic Laser Surgery and has been since 2013.

Meeting Dr. David Robbins

This is the customer’s opportunity to ask any and all questions. It is also Dr. Robbins’ opportunity to ask you questions as well. Every conversation should be open and honest because surgery is a big deal and both parties involved want the best outcome with the best experience possible. You should be expected to talk about the following:

What you want to change about your body, and why you want to change it?
How you feel about your body now, and how you would like to feel after plastic surgery?
Your goals: what do you want to look like after surgery, what specific changes would you like to see?
Which procedure(s), if any, can help you achieve your goals?
What results you can expect from each procedure?
What’s involved in the surgery (anesthesia type, incisions, recovery timeframe)?
The risks and possible complications from surgery?
Review your medical history (be open and honest for your safety).
