Not All Board Certification Is the Same -- Orlando Plastic Surgeon Explains

Orlando Plastic Surgeon Jon Paul Trevisani, MD Discusses Why Board Re-Certification Is Important, Yet Not All Doctors Are Required to Go Through the Process

ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/14 -- The American Board of Plastic Surgery encourages board-certified plastic surgeons to keep their medical knowledge current by requiring them to update their certification every ten years. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Orlando, says this re-certification process is key to maintaining a surgeon's skill and education. However, he notes that not all plastic surgeons are required to renew their certification, explaining that physicians certified prior to 1995 are considered to have a "lifetime" certification.

In a recent blog post, titled "What Does a Plastic Surgeon's Re-certification Mean for Patients?," Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani says, "For surgeons who were certified after 1995, the renewal process involves a review of the physician's professional standing and clinical work, testing of their medical knowledge, and the completion of 500 hours of continuing medical education."

Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani believes all plastic surgeons should go through the re-certification process, regardless of whether or not they have lifetime certification. He advises patients who are consulting with a lifetime certified physician to ask if the doctor chooses to voluntarily participate in the renewal process. The Orlando plastic surgeon says continuing education courses can help plastic surgeons stay on top of the most current medical advances in technology, fine-tune their surgical techniques, and expand their knowledge and skills.

Over the years, the American Board of Plastic Surgery has been consistently recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) as the only organization responsible for training and certifying plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani encourages patients to be aware of their surgeon's credentials, explaining that several other sub-specialty boards exist, but unlike the American Board of Plastic Surgery, these other organizations have not met the strict requirements of the ABMS for testing and training. According to the Orlando plastic surgeon, some of these unapproved organizations require no more than a fee in order for surgeons to become certified.

For patients considering plastic surgery, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani says it is important to conduct thorough research prior to selecting a surgeon, and stresses the importance of board certification, experience, skill, and education. During this crucial decision-making period, Dr. Jon Paul Trevisani recommends scheduling consultations with several physicians prior to selecting a plastic surgeon. He says this provides patients with the opportunity to become well-informed and find a surgeon that can best assist them in achieving their aesthetic goals, and reminds patients to be mindful during this time, stating, "If you meet with a surgeon who says they have 20+ years of experience, I hope you will remember to follow up with the appropriate questions about their certification."
