Why Should you Choose an ABPS Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon?

Patients should ideally work with a plastic surgeon who has the certification of American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). A large number of people believe that a state medical board certification offers a reliable indication of the skills and qualifications of the surgeon regarding all the surgical procedures that they may be performing.

However, this may not be entirely correct. There is no legal obligation for surgeons to be trained in the precise surgeries that they wish to offer to patients. Consequently, it is all the more essential for patients to work only with ABPS certified plastic surgeons for a sensitive procedure such as breast implant removal. 

In order to obtain this much sought-after board certification, a surgeon must undergo a specific number of years of surgical training. On top of this, they should also go through residency training for a minimum of three years and clear both the oral and the written examinations.

On the completion of their training, the surgeon has to submit documentation on cases that they have performed to the board. The board states that surgeons must take renewal exams every ten years to continue their certification. 

ABPS certified plastic surgeons invest heavily in superior surgical practices and quality medical standards, adopt advanced technology and techniques, continue their ongoing education, and focus on the most recent safety protocols to deliver safe and best surgical results to their patients.
