It is an unfortunate fact that many physicians without board certification in plastic surgery perform plastic surgery procedures. Only a board-certified plastic surgeon has undergone extensive training (beyond the basic surgical skills learned in a standard medical degree) in plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery.
