When choosing a plastic surgeon for tummy tuck, remember that the surgeon’s experience and your comfort with him or her are just as important as the final cost of the surgery.

Plastic surgery involves many choices. The first and most important is selecting an American society of plastic surgeons (ASPS) member you can trust. ASPS member surgeons meet rigorous standards:
Board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) or in Canada by the Royal college of physicians and surgeons of Canada
Complete at least six years of surgical training following medical school with a minimum of three years of plastic surgeon residency training
Pass comprehensive oral and written exam
Graduate from an accredited medical school
Complete continuing medical education, including patient safety each year
Perform surgery in accredited, state-licensed, or Medicare-certified surgical facilities

DO NOT BE CONFUSED BY OTHER OFFICIAL SOUNDING BOARDS AND CERTIFICATION.
The ABPS is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), which has approved medical specialty boards since 1934. There is no ABMS recognized certifying board with “COSMETIC SURGERY” in its name. by choosing a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, you can be assured that you are choosing a qualified, highly trained plastic surgeon who is board-certified by the ABPS or The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
