Is it important that I ask my doctor if he or she is a board certified plastic surgeon?

Absolutely.  The American Board of Plastic Surgery is the only board dedicated to plastic surgery of the face and entire body. Unlike other specialty organizations, ABPS requires each member surgeon to have a minimum of five years of surgical training, with at least two of those years specifically in plastic surgery.

 A board certified plastic surgeon has passed the rigorous written and oral exams which measure his or hers competency as a safe plastic surgeon. The state of Florida require doctors to have a medical license and  be board certified to maintain privileges in plastic surgery at a hospital.
