How to check if a Plastic Surgeon is Board Certified

Wonder if your Plastic Surgeon is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery?

There are several ways to check besides calling the plastic surgeon’s office or checking his or her website.  Plus it gets somewhat confusing because there are several different medical boards.  One could call these different medical boards and get info, and these medical boards have websites.  The easiest way in my opinion is to go directly to the American Board of Plastic Surgery’s website and type in identifying information about the plastic surgeon in question and you should get an answer about Board Certification in Plastic Surgery:

What is Board Certification?

  • Read about Board Certification in detail here.
  • Board Certification is a voluntary process, and one that is very different from medical licensure. Obtaining a medical license sets the minimum competency requirements to diagnose and treat patients, it is not specialty specific. Board Certification demonstrates a physician’s exceptional expertise in a particular specialty and/or subspecialty of medical practice.
