Why is board certification important?
For anyone considering cosmetic plastic surgery, the most important decision is which cosmetic plastic surgeon they select. When selecting a plastic surgeon, it is critical that your surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) under the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Both Dr. Farber and Dr. Shah are board certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
In many states, including Texas, a licensed physician may perform cosmetic procedures without being a board-certified plastic surgeon. This is something that a patient should be aware of when looking for a surgeon.
The ABPS is the only one of the 24 boards approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) that certifies physicians in plastic surgery of the face and all areas of the body. The ABMS was established to protect patients by monitoring and regulating the quality of medical education.
To be certified by the ABPS, a physician must meet these demanding requirements:
- GRADUATE FROM AN ACCREDITED MEDICAL SCHOOL
- COMPLETE AN APPROVED RESIDENCY IN PLASTIC SURGERY
- PASS A RIGOROUS PROCESS OF ORAL AND WRITTEN EXAMS AS WELL AS PEER EVALUATION
- PRACTICE PLASTIC SURGERY AND RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY FOR A MINIMUM OF FOUR YEARS
