Choose a Surgeon You Can Trust – Barry N. Silberg, M.D., F.A.C.S.
Many health care providers are now performing plastic surgery procedures, but that does not mean they are all qualified to perform plastic surgery. American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Member Surgeons are trained in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures of all types.
Plastic surgery involves many choices. The first and most important choice is selecting an ASPS Member Surgeon you can trust. ASPS Member Surgeons meet rigorous standards:
- Board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery® (ABPS)
- 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
- Complete continuing medical education, including patient safety each year
- Perform surgery in accredited, state-licensed, or Medicare-certified surgical facilities
- Adheres to a strict Code of Ethics
Do not be confused by other official sounding boards and certifications. The ABPS is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), which has approved medical specialty boards since 1934. There is no ABMS recognized certifying board with “cosmetic surgery” in its name.
By choosing a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, you can be assured that you are choosing a qualified, highly trained plastic surgeon who is board-certified by the ABPS.
To make sure your surgeon has these outstanding qualifications, look for the ASPS Member Surgeon Symbol of Excellence Logo. – www.plasticsurgery.org
You will also want to make sure that your surgeon is a member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
