If you're considering cosmetic surgery, it's imperative to find a doctor with the education, training, and real-world experience to provide the safety and quality care each patient deserves. Michael F. Chiaramonte, M.D., FACS, is a Board-certified plastic surgeon in Washington DC who is committed to both patient safety and exceptional results.
Board-certified plastic surgeons have met rigorous standards set by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. These standards include:
Graduation from an accredited medical school
5 years or more as a surgical resident
At least 2 years of residency specifically in the field of plastic surgery
Passing comprehensive oral and written examinations administered by the American Board of Plastic Surgery
Maintenance of certification through ongoing educational activities, practice performance, and reevaluation of credentials every 10 years
Anyone who has received a medical degree can claim to be a cosmetic surgeon. Board certification communicates to the public that the doctor has completed extensive education and training in plastic surgery and exemplifies a commitment to providing patients with safe, effective, and ethical care.
Patients who are interested in changing their appearance want to know that they are in good hands – they want to find “the best” plastic surgeon. Board certification is a key differentiator patients can use to find plastic surgeons who have met a very high standard within their profession.
