The Importance of Board Certification

Did you know that many different types of doctors can perform cosmetic surgery without specialized plastic surgery training? However, statistics show that the best results and care come from board-certified plastic surgeons. That’s why it’s so important to choose a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. By law, a board-certified plastic surgeon is required to:

  • Graduate from an accredited medical school
  • Complete at least 5 years of additional surgical training, at least 2 of which are dedicated entirely to plastic surgery, at a residency accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS)
  • Pass a series of written and/or oral examinations
  • Fulfill ongoing education requirements to maintain board certification

All of our surgeons are board-eligible or board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and have exceeded the criteria listed above in order to receive this elite recognition. They also maintain active involvement with professional medical organizations in order to stay current on the latest news and information on plastic surgery. Their goal is always to provide you with advanced techniques, proven treatments, and superior care.
