Sarasota Surgical Arts' Dr. Sessa Trained Through a Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship

SARASOTA, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/09/14 -- Samir Pancholi, President of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS), announced last month that the ABCS is expanding into other countries. The plan is to make the ABCS's certification available on an international level through the International Division of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. Eligible are cosmetic surgeons that hold no license to practice medicine in the U.S. and who come from countries that do not have their own board of cosmetic surgery in place. Pancholi explains: "Candidacy for this exam will be strict. The division will be strictly majority managed by the ABCS for integrity and validity of each and every applicant and aspect." Applying those high standards will guarantee that the growing recognition of the ABCS, both within the United States and abroad, is maintained.

The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery was founded in 1990, when the American Board of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the Board of Cosmetic Surgery, Inc. decided to join forces. The corporation, which is organized under the nonprofit laws of Pennsylvania, follows its mission of serving the public by supporting ethical and safe practice in the field of cosmetic surgery. Members of the ABCS have to adhere to the highest standards with regards to knowledge, training, and expertise in their field and must pass the standardized certification and examination process executed by their peers to be awarded the title of Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery*. Many cosmetic surgeons, such as Dr. Alberico Sessa of Sarasota Surgical Arts in Sarasota, Florida, experienced first-hand the training and support through the ABCS that goes beyond what plastic surgery associations have to offer.

Methods of training in the plastic surgery field have shifted considerably over the years. As a result, graduates get very little hands-on experience with cosmetic surgery during their residencies. Reasons for this are the financial constraints as well as hospital regulations that do not allow plastic surgery residents to perform certain cosmetic surgery techniques.

Training in cosmetic surgery through fellowships, on the other hand, puts more emphasis on gaining practical experience in the field while applying state-of-the-art technology. The bond between the mentor and the student tends to be considerably closer: the studying doctors are present from the first consultation to the last follow-up visit. During this process fellows learn every minute detail from finding the right implant size to handling all of the post-op questions that patients might have. During his Facial and Full Body Cosmetic Surgery fellowship, which is accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery in Salt Lake City, Utah, Dr. Alberico Sessa of Sarasota Surgical Arts participated in over 700 body and facial cosmetic procedures, supervised and trained by board-certified plastic and cosmetic surgeons.

As part of his cosmetic surgery fellowship, Dr. Alberico Sessa, who now runs his own facility, the Sarasota Surgical Arts in Florida, has received intensive training in various surgery techniques, including minimal incision face and breast surgery with endoscopy as well as transaxillary breast augmentation. Prior to his fellowship, Dr. Sessa served as an intern in General Surgery at Charity Hospital and completed his residency at the Louisiana State University in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Today, he is a proud Diplomate of the ABCS* and dedicated to fulfilling the mission of the organization: Providing patients at Sarasota Surgical Arts with competent advice, safe procedures, and outstanding patient care.

* The specialty recognition identified herein has been received from a private organization not affiliated with or recognized by the Florida Board of Medicine.
