Dr. Slenkovich's Qualifications And Credentials
A leader in the field of plastic surgery in Denver and throughout Colorado, Dr. Slenkovich has authored many plastic surgery articles published in scholarly journals.
He received his medical doctorate from the University of Colorado Health Science Center. He completed his Otolaryngology (study of diseases of the ear and throat) residency at the University of Colorado Hospital and his Plastic Surgery residency at the University of Alabama Hospital in Birmingham. Dr. Slenkovich is one of the top plastic surgeons in Denver and performs excellent results in both plastic surgery and non-invasive procedures.
Dr. Slenkovich was the third plastic surgeon I saw. As soon as I walked into his office, it was a totally different experience from other doctors. He cared about the rest of me . . . and took the time to find out what was going on with me. I felt totally comfortable with him . . . and immediately trusted him.
Why Is Board Certification Important?
In Colorado, any licensed physician may perform plastic surgery procedures without being board certified in plastic surgery. Even if he or she possesses other board certifications, it is important to look for a certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. If a surgeon is not certified by the ABPS board, they can still call themselves a “plastic surgeon,” but please do not take the risk of having such a doctor perform any cosmetic procedures on you.
In addition to being double board certified, Dr. Nick is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
Why Credentials Matter When Choosing A Plastic Surgeon
ASPS membership is the gold-standard for plastic surgeons and the most important credential to look for when choosing a plastic surgeon. This credential indicates that the surgeon has completed a combination of at least five years of surgery training with a minimum of two years of plastic surgery training and has passed comprehensive oral and written exams in plastic surgery including a detailed review of the surgeon’s own patient care and outcomes.
Surgical Skill and Ethical Practice: ASPS
Membership in ASPS also requires the surgeon to be certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery (or The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada®). This credential ensures that the surgeon operates only in accredited surgical facilities, adheres to the strict ASPS Code of Professional Ethics, regularly fulfills continuing medical education requirements, and completes ongoing education in Patient Safety Standards and innovations in plastic surgery.
ASPS membership is the single most important credential to look for when seeking out a plastic surgeon. No other credential provides as broad of an assurance of years of Plastic Surgery residency training, Board Certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, ongoing medical and patient safety education, use of accredited facilities and the highest level of ethical standards in all aesthetic medicine.
American Society for Aesthic Plastic Surgery: It Matters.
ASAPS is the leading organization of board-certified plastic surgeons specializing in cosmetic plastic surgery. The additional “A” stands for “Aesthetic” plastic surgery. If there is any credential that a plastic surgeon can attain that demonstrates a true dedication to aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery, it is ASAPS membership.
ASAPS members must meet additional requirements for continuing education and experience in cosmetic surgery. As the largest organization of American and international aesthetic plastic surgeons, the ASAPS hosts leading scientific meetings dedicated to education and research in cosmetic surgery and procedures. The ASAPS has a special focus on patient safety issues as well as on the effectiveness of new technologies and procedures.
Body Contouring, Breast Surgery, Facial Rejuvenation, And Nose Reshaping
Dr. Slenkovich has been performing body contouring, aesthetic breast surgery, facial rejuvenation and nose reshaping procedures for both men and women for over ten years. He is also a frequent speaker on post-weight loss plastic surgery at bariatric and weight loss support groups throughout the metro Denver area.
Dr. Nick Slenkovich, The Denver Body Doc
Dr. Nick is known as DenverBodyDoc on SnapChat and Instagram. Every day, he gives existing and prospective patients an inside look at plastic surgery by taking them behind the scenes of Colorado Plastic Surgery Center and inside the operating room to see actual surgeries, treatments, recoveries and results in real time.
Dr. Slenkovich's Plastic Surgery Philosophy
From the very start of establishing his practice, Dr. Nick focused on building relationships with patients through listening and open communication. His consultations are educational and informative, and freely explore patient’s hopes, fears, issues and expectations. He realizes that plastic surgery is not right for everyone and is not the best solution for every problem and he does not recommend surgery when it is not warranted. Many modern aesthetic techniques can produce dramatic improvements – and Dr. Nick offers a wide range of non-surgical treatments.
Beyond his skills as a plastic surgeon, Dr. Nick’s personal and caring approach is what stands out most to his cosmetic surgery patients.
Plastic Surgery: It’s Personal.
Dr. Nick understands that plastic surgery is one of the most personal decisions a man or woman can make. He views his initial role as providing options and facts and supporting his patients in making the decision truly right for them. Sometimes that decision is to choose plastic surgery, sometimes it involves a non-invasive cosmetic or medical skincare procedure, and in other cases, the person chooses instead to accept him or herself the way he or she is. For Dr. Nick, it’s all about helping each person to discover what is best for them and will enable them to be their personal best. As committed as Dr. Nick is to being accessible to his patients, there will be times — such as when he’s in surgery or in consultations – when he is not available, so he has surrounded himself with a warm, caring and knowledgeable team who share with him this promise to patients:
We are dedicated to building relationships with our patients through listening, caring and open communication, and delivering exceptional results.

I interviewed five other surgeons before meeting Dr. Slenkovich. As soon as I met him, I knew immediately that he was the right choice. The relationship I felt with him and his staff was very personal and caring. It is so important that the person you’re working with is going to be supportive of you and has your best interests at heart. (Plus) my results are fabulous and have emotionally transformed my life.
With so many Denver Plastic Surgeons to choose from, why should you choose Dr. Nick Slenkovich for your cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure?
He is a warm, caring, talented plastic surgeon who takes a very personal approach with each patient, rather than the impersonal approach typical of many doctors and surgeons.
He and his team will spend as much time as necessary with you at your initial phone and in-person consultations, and all subsequent appointments, never rushing through your questions, cares or concerns.
He is a completely honest surgeon who will tell you the truth of what to expect in terms of the procedure, the recovery and the results.
Dr. Slenkovich is a surgeon – not a salesman. He doesn’t believe plastic surgery is right for everyone and will never try to talk you into a procedure that may not be right for you.
He believes part of his role is to educate his patients about the procedures they are considering so they make informed decisions about what they may or may not want to choose with regard to their own bodies.
Dr. Nick’s surgical results are not only skillful, but are very natural-looking, which is important to most patients.
Dr. Slenkovich is a highly-skilled plastic surgeon who is double board certified. He is board certified in plastic surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and board certified in Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery by the American Board of Otolaryngology. Why are these certifications important? Because any surgeon can call him or herself a “cosmetic surgeon” and can perform plastic surgery. But when you are trusting your body or face to a surgeon, you should be sure that plastic surgery or facial plastic surgery is one of their specialties and that they have received advanced training in this area.
In addition to being double board certified, Dr. Nick is a member of the two most prestigious plastic surgery societies in the country: the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS) and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS)
ASPS membership is the gold-standard for plastic surgeons and the most important credential to look for when choosing a plastic surgeon. No other credential provides as broad an assurance of years of plastic surgery residency training and the highest standards in aesthetic medicine.
ASAPS is the leading organization of board-certified plastic surgeons specializing in cosmetic plastic surgery. The additional “A” stands for “Aesthetic” plastic surgery; and this membership demonstrates a true dedication to aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery. ASAPS members must meet additional requirements for continuing education and experience in cosmetic surgery. The ASAPS has a special focus on patient safety issues and the effectiveness of new technologies and procedures.
Dr. Slenkovich is also a widely-published author of a wide range of articles on varied aspects of plastic surgery, including breast, body, facial plastic surgery, rhinoplasty and more. Dr. Nick is also an editor of the Plastic Surgery Text for Emedicine.com, the world’s largest online medical journal.
For all his skill and the excellent results his patients experience, it is still Dr. Nick’s warmth and caring that patients comment on most. And because he knows that he can’t always be available, he has chosen his team for their skills – and their ability to interact with care, compassion, and kindness so the entire Colorado Plastic Surgery experience is the best experience possible.
