When you entrust your face or body to a plastic surgeon, you want to be sure that you are selecting the very best.  That is why you should choose a surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) is dedicated to improving the care of the surgical patient and to safeguarding standards of care in an optimal and ethical practice environment.  Members of the American College of Surgeons are known as “Fellows”.  FACS after a surgeons name signifies that the surgeon’s education and training, professional qualifications, surgical competence and ethical conduct have passed a rigorous evaluation, and have been found to be consistent with the high standards established and demanded by the College. 

The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) certification requires comprehensive training in all aspects of plastic surgery.  ABPS is one of twenty-four medical specialty boards that constitute the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS).  The boards protects the public by assessing and certifying doctors who meet specialty specific education, training and professional requirements.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) is the largest plastic surgery specialty organization in the world representing greater than 90% of all board certified plastic surgeons.  The ASPS advances quality care to plastic surgery patients by encouraging high standards of training, ethics, physician practice and research in plastic surgery. 

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) is exclusively committed to advancing the science, art and safety of cosmetic surgery.  The members are a select group of board certified plastic surgeons who specialize in cosmetic surgeries.  They have earned the right to display the ASAPS logo, depicting the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti and symbolizing ageless beauty.  The ASAPS logo represents the highest achievement in cosmetic plastic surgery.
