Importance of Board Certification

When you are looking for your Scottsdale plastic surgeon, you want to know that you are making the right choice. Selecting a board certified plastic surgeon ensures that you are choosing a surgeon with a high level of experience and training who can provide the results you expect.

What Is Board Certification?

The American Board of Medical Specialties oversees 24 different medical specialty boards, including the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. To become a board certified physician in any of these specialties, the doctor must undergo a rigorous certification process, which includes:

  • A degree from an accredited medical school
  • Three years of surgical internship and residency
  • Two years of practice in plastic surgery
  • Passing extensive oral and written exams given by the review board

Many doctors will claim that they are board certified cosmetic surgeons. This misleads patients into believing those doctors are highly qualified. Only a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery has undergone the years of training and practice it takes to be a plastic surgeon who can produce natural-looking results for his patients in a safe and comfortable surgical environment.
