This means that your plastic surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Board certification from ABPS ensures that your plastic surgeon has met the rigorous guidelines set forth by the organization regarding education, surgical training and ethics.

Patient Satisfaction Rate
