Physicians who perform plastic surgery:

It is important for patients to select physicians who are certified in plastic surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Generally, a surgeon who is board-certified in plastic surgery has graduated from an accredited medical school and has completed at least five years of graduate medical education -- usually three years of general surgery and two years of plastic surgery.

In addition, the surgeon must practice plastic surgery for two years and pass comprehensive written and oral examinations to become board-certified.
