    What’s A Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon VS. Cosmetic Surgeon?

    If you’re considering a plastic surgery procedure ✨, it’s important to do your homework first — research doctors, procedures, read reviews and more. One question you should ask is whether or not the doctor is a cosmetic surgeon or board certified. At Monarch, all of our surgeons are board-certified. In this blog, we will walk you through the differences between a cosmetic surgeon versus a board-certified surgeon, and why it’s important to know the difference! 

    Whitney, Breast Augmentation Patient

    “Surgery can be scary but every person who helped me through the process of my procedure made me feel safe. Dr. Hodge, all his staff, including the front desk girls were amazing in every way and exceeded my expectations."

    Ivy, Breast Lift Patient

    "Dr. Hodge and his nurse, Kimber, made my husband and I feel very at ease about the surgery. And I never felt pressured to have an augmentation in addition to the lift. I am very pleased with my result and just wish I wouldn't have waited so long to do it!”

    Dawn, Breast Reduction Patient

    “I had a breast reduction on November 1st and Dr. Hodge did an amazing job! The recovery was easy and the results were amazing!!!"
