This Symbol of Excellence
designates plastic surgeons who are Active
Members of the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. Plastic Surgeons who display this  symbol are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and are  dedicated to the highest standards of patient care and continuing  development of professional skills and competence.
Understanding Board Certification
The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) is the agency which governs   sub-specialty boards. They assure that   surgeons certified in   Plastic   Surgery have received the appropriate training, passed rigorous exams  and have demonstrated experience and  competence in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.                       ;            
Many "cosmetic surgeons"  list board certification but only   the American Board  of  Plastic Surgery   has  traditionally overseen   the  training  of  Plastic Surgeons. While  many    "boards"  have   been  submitted  to   ABMS  for  approval,     only  25  have   met  their  strict  criteria.  These recognized, official   boards are:                      &nb; sp;                      &nbs; p;                      
� Allergy and Immunology
� Anesthesiology
� Colon and Rectal Surgery
� Dermatology

� Obstetrics and Gynecology
