Board Certification

Many people believe that when a surgeon is board certified it means the cosmetic surgeon has been certified with a state or federal agency to perform the procedure you are looking to have done. This is not actually the case. It is not required of your doctor to be certified in any one specific procedure. That is why the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery has set the bar so high in regard to cosmetic surgeon certification, when it comes to training, expertise and ethical practice in this particular field of medicine. Dr. Repta takes immense satisfaction in being a board certified plastic surgeon. As such, Dr. Repta knows, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you are receiving the pinnacle of cosmetic treatment when you visit his cosmetic surgery facility, here in Scottsdale.


Another helpful tip for you, when trying to choose the best possible plastic surgeon, is to ask about their personal experience with the procedure you are interested in. As there are so many varieties of cosmetic surgery, it is important to have that security in knowing that your doctor has the hands-on experience and know-how for your exclusive surgery. Dr. Repta has performed hundreds of successful body contouring procedures. He has also helped to develop new innovations in the surgical world of body contouring, which his peers can use and learn from. This is an excellent display of his unparalleled knowledge and skill in the field of cosmetic surgery.


Beauty and aesthetics are an extraordinarily personalized opinion. What looks pleasing to one person may not hold true for another. All cosmetic surgeries are highly individual processes, and you have an exact look you are seeking to behold. It is vital that you and your surgeon have an understanding and agree on what you believe to be beautiful. Dr. Repta has been performing an array of plastic surgery procedures for years. Through the benefits of experience, skill, education and expertise grants Dr. Repta with an enlightened and fully formed concept of aesthetic beauty, which is matched only by his ability to give you the figure you desire.

Emotional Connection

It is very important that you and your surgeon can share an understanding of what you're looking to gain from the procedure, as well as an emotional connection. Surgery is a uniquely personal experience, and you should feel completely comfortable about communicating anything you may have on your mind, during the process. Not to mention, it helps to enjoy the time you're spending with your doctor. This emotional connection will undoubtedly be one of the first impressions you receive, when coming in for your consultation with Dr. Repta.
