Breast Cancer – Autologous Reconstruction – Board Certified Surgeon

July 6, 2021


So a common thing patients will ask is, what does it mean to be a board certified plastic surgeon? Well, typically this means that people have undergone four years of medical school. There’s two routes from this point. The most common route that you’ll see is people will go through five years of general surgery training and then a three year residency program in plastic surgery. They can further specialize into different areas of plastic surgery: in creating microsurgery, hand, craniofacial, and aesthetics. The other route that we commonly see with becoming a board certified plastic surgeon is an integrated route, which is six years after medical school to become eligible to take and sit for the board exams.
