As any licensed physician can perform cosmetic surgery, it's crucial to find one who is properly trained and certified. Choosing a physician who is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons is the first step to ensure quality care and outcomes. Each ASPS Member Surgeon has at least five years of surgical training—with a minimum of two years experience specifically in plastic surgery. All ASPS Member Surgeons are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. Protect yourself by choosing a physician who is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
