Board Certified and ASPS MemberDr. Seify is board certified in plastic surgery and he is also an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). For a new patient, choosing a board certified surgeon serves as an assurance that the surgeon would have received a minimum of five years of medical training, including at least two years exclusively dedicated to plastic surgery training. Board certified plastic surgeons typically invest in highest quality standards and practices, adopt innovative surgical techniques and technology, pursue ongoing training, and follow the latest safety protocols. Dr. Seify’s membership of the ASPS enables him to engage with colleagues in the field and stay in touch with the events and developments in the area of plastic surgery.
Hospital PrivilegesPatients should preferably choose a surgeon for breast implant replacement who has operating privileges at one or more local hospitals. In the rare situation of an emergency, the patient would have easy hospital access, and if the patient wants to undergo the replacement surgery at a hospital, it can be done at the hospitals where the surgeon has an affiliation. Hospitals perform extensive background checks before awarding privileges to surgeons, which can serve as an additional assurance to a patient while choosing a plastic surgeon. Dr. Seify is affiliated with some of the leading hospitals in Orange County, which include Hoag, Saddleback, and Fountain Valley Hospitals. All of these hospitals are recognized for their outstanding health care contributions to the Southern California area.

Dr. Seify ensures that every patient receives his personalized care and attention, particularly for advanced procedures such as breast implant replacement.
