You have a number of choices for cosmetic surgeons in and around Atlanta, Georgia. An important thing to keep in mind is that any surgeon can add the title “cosmetic” to their name and perform a variety of Atlanta cosmetic surgery procedures. However, only a surgeon who has completed additional training, passed advanced testing, and been able to provide proven results can become a board certified plastic surgeon.
Plastic Surgery Board Certification
To become board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), a doctor must first complete training requirements including:
- The acquisition of a basic surgical science, knowledge base, and experience with basic principles of surgery.
- Plastic surgery principles and practice, which includes advanced knowledge in specific plastic surgery techniques.
In addition, applicants must complete at least five years of clinical general surgery residency training as well as a residency in plastic surgery. Applicants must also complete both a written and oral exam, in which their knowledge specific to plastic surgery is rigorously tested. Only after successfully completing these requirements can an applicant become a board certified plastic surgeon. All of this is in place to help ensure your safety and satisfaction with your plastic surgery procedure.
