Board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery involves several years of training, specifically in plastic surgery. Over that time, thousands of hours are spent with academic leaders and professors in plastic surgery, fine tuning our skills and our surgical arts. Board certified surgeons of the American Board of Plastic Surgery undergo an intense and rigorous process. The process includes first completing the two years of requisite training in specifically, plastic surgery. Number two, a written examination, number three, peer review of cases that you have done when you started practice. Fourth, an oral examination and then five, a long-standing rigorous maintenance of certification, which includes peer review, testing, and adherence to our code of ethics. The American Board of Plastic Surgery Code of Ethics may be our single most important factor when choosing a surgeon. It emphasizes patient directive care and evidence-based medicine. Make sure you ask your surgeon, is he board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
