What to look out for when choosing your surgeon?

The best surgeons are those recognised by prestigious establishments, which is why it is important to always select a board-certified Plastic Surgeon. Particularly look out for those who are a trusted member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) because this institution is very rigorous in their training and have extremely high standards as to what they permit as successful surgeries.

Board standards include:

  • Board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
  • Complete at least six years of surgical training following medical school with a minimum of three years of Plastic Surgery residency training.
  • Pass comprehensive oral and written exams.
  • Graduate from an accredited medical school.
  • Continual competition of medical education, including patient safety, each year.
  • Perform surgery in accredited, state-licensed, or Medicare-certified, surgical facilities.

*Don’t be confused with other official-sounding boards. They can be deceiving. The ABPS has been an approved medical board since 1934, so you can ensure they a qualified and highly trained.
