The single most important factor in the success of your plastic surgery is the surgeon that you choose. That is why you need to know about the training and experience of your plastic surgeon.
In order to be board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, one must graduate from an accredited medical school, do internship and residency training in either general surgery or otolaryngology, complete an approved residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery, practice a minimum of two years after graduation, and pass extensive written and oral exams which include a review of all cases done by that surgeon in the past year! This is an incredibly long and tedious process, usually taking a minimum of 7 1/2 years after graduation from medical school!
While many people feel that plastic surgeons spend all of their time doing noses and liposuction, that is far from the case. The reason for such extensive training is that the plastic surgeon is one of the few medical specialists who is called upon to help with every part of the body. From brain surgery, to cleft lip in infants, ear, throat, breast, and all other areas, there is really no body part that plastic surgeons aren’t called upon to fix when other surgeons run up against difficult situations.
Many Plastic Surgeons focus their practices on Cosmetic Surgery and others on Reconstructive Surgery. For this reason, it is important to ask about the type of cases that a particular surgeon focuses on. They are going to be more experienced in areas they focus upon.
Another good place to explore is the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. To be a Member, a surgeon must have completed training in an accredited program and be Board Certified. This society comprises 97 percent of all plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery!
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons consists of Board Certified Plastic Surgeons who specialize in cosmetic surgery. This is also a good place to look for the credentials of your doctor.
One of the most prestigious organizations in medicine, is The American College Of Surgeons. In order to be a Fellow of The American College of Surgeons (FACS), a surgeon must be board certified in his or her specialty, have practiced a minimum of one year after board certification, and passed a review of clinical work, academic work and ethics!
If the surgeon displays the initials F. A. C. S. after his or her name,
that denotes that they have been designated a
Fellow of The American College of Surgeons,
and completed the above process.
Board Certified by
The American Board of Plastic Surgery
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).

I underwent a tummy tuck and breast reduction on September 28, 21. I’m feeling sore, but am otherwise well. The doctor and his staff were outstanding, as was the anesthesiologist. I highly recommend the entire experience.
I strongly recommend plastic surgeon Dr. Joel Studin. He is an artist and craftsman, giving meticulous attention to details. His skills are second to none. His staff is wonderful. I found him to be very professional and honest. If you want to be treated with respect and care, do not look further—go to Dr. Joel Studin.
After 18 years of having my first augmentation with Dr. Studin, I’m excited to be able to discuss my second augmentation with him. Nothing has changed about his staff; they are caring and compassionate. In addition to that, not only have I received compliments on my breasts but three of my friends have had Dr. Studin perform their augmentations and their results were amazing! Cannot wait until next week for my surgery!
My experience with Dr. Joel Studin has been a positive one. I had no difficulty scheduling an appointment and his staff was friendly and helpful. I am very pleased with the results of my facial surgery, and will certainly return to him in the future should I require any other procedures.
