Applicants must have completed residency and fellowship training for surgery in a reputable institution either in the United States or Canada. He or she must also be a good candidate for certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery here in the United States. Alternatively, if the surgeon trained in Canada, he can also apply if he is a candidate for certification at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Doctorly.org explained these certifications and specialties in one of its web posts. “Certification by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) indicates a surgeon has completed a required set of education and training requirements beyond the minimum requirements for obtaining licensure. It also shows a surgeon has passed exams in his or her specialty. The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) is one of twenty-four specialty boards recognized by the ABMS, that certifies a surgeon in the full range of plastic surgery specialties — cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.” Check out the rest of the explanation here.

Apart from gaining a board certification, a registered plastic surgeon should also possess a Maintenance of Certification. This certification proves that the surgeon continues to pursue and undertake continuing education to stay on top of his area of specialty. This also assures his patients that he is aware of the newest safety procedures, and surgical trends that will pave the way for a successful and safe surgical procedure.

So apply today to become a registered plastic surgeon, and grow your practice even more. Being a registered plastic surgeon can open more doors of opportunities for you that will otherwise not be available if not for such a certification. There is more in store for your career.
