Has experience in a wide range of cosmetic procedures

Before being accepted into ASAPS membership, a plastic surgeon must document the performance of a significant number of cosmetic surgical cases and be recommended by other ASAPS plastic surgeons familiar with his or her professional reputation. Membership in ASAPS is by invitation only and is an exclusive privilege for a select group of plastic surgeons nationwide.

Remember, any licensed physician is legally allowed to advertise as a "plastic" or "cosmetic" surgeon, even if he or she has no formal surgical training. Selecting an ASAPS member is your assurance of quality training and credentials.
