What is "Board Certified"?

by Dr. Joshua Cooper


“Is your plastic surgeon Board Certified?” Most patients are surprised to learn that any licensed medical doctor can call him or herself a plastic surgeon, regardless of specialty training. But what exactly does “board certified” mean, and why is it so important? The American Board of Plastic Surgery is the largest plastic surgery organization in the world and exclusively represents esteemed surgeons who have undergone extensive training in reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery. This prestigious membership requires about 11 years of post-high school education, including a successful plastic surgery residency, upstanding ethical integrity, as well as the demonstrated ability to safely and efficiently manages pre and postoperative challenges. This accreditation is so vital because it ensures that your plastic surgeon has the comprehensive understanding and skill set to provide patients with a superior cosmetic surgical experience, both inside and outside of the operating room. Our surgeons here at Sound Plastic Surgery are members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and are proud to offer our patients the highest level of expertise and patient care available.
