Dr. Dennis Dass is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Beverly Hills

Dr. Dass is a Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), one of the twenty-four medical specialty boards that make up the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). The process of becoming board certified in plastic surgery is extremely rigorous. The pathway to Board certification in plastic surgery (minimum requirements):
  • Bachelor's degree (4 years)
  • Accredited medical school (4 years)
  • Accredited residency training in Plastic Surgery (6+ years)
    • General Surgery (3-5 years)
    • Plastic Surgery (3 years)
  • Passing score on written exam by ABPS
  • Passing score on oral exam by ABPS
    • Candidates can qualify to sit for the oral exam only after submission of an adequate number of plastic surgery cases (performed after completion of residency training) that demonstrate wide breadth of experience, knowledge, safety, and ethical standards.

Not all boards are the same:

Not every physician has the same qualifications and training, so it is important for you to do your homework, but this can get rather confusing. Any physician that is board certified in their specific specialty (or area of training), can call themselves “board certified.” The state medical board does not differentiate between medical doctors that have had specialty training in surgery, so any licensed physician may also call themselves a “surgeon.” To further add confusion, any physician that chooses to perform cosmetic procedures can call themselves a “cosmetic surgeon.” Only board certified plastic surgeons are trained (and certified) to perform plastic surgery on the face, body, breast, and the rest of the body. Aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery is a specialty within Plastic Surgery. Plastic surgeons also have plastic surgery privileges at hospitals and accredited surgery centers, and can perform these procedures under a general anesthetic. Non-plastic surgeons will not have these privileges at hospitals or accredited surgery centers. Be wary of physicians that only perform surgery in small private operating rooms and those that encourage you to have surgery under local anesthesia.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
