To be board certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, a surgeon must complete an approved residency of at least five years after medical school. That surgeon must then wait a minimum of two years before sitting for extensive written and oral exams. After completing board certification, a surgeon may then apply for review of his or her credentials and practice to become a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, (FACS).

This process can take another two years.

Dr. Joel Studin worked with Laser Surgery at Harvard Medical School, and has maintained a strong interest in this field ever since. He is one of very few surgeons to be certified as a preceptor by Coherent, Inc. and subsequently Cynosure, Inc. to teach Laser Facial Surgery, Laser Eyelift and Smartlipo. He has traveled extensively and has taught over a hundred surgeons these techniques.

Surgeons have frequently visited his office to observe how these procedures are done.
