I couldn't agree more! In a "past life" I had the need to write Web pages for a cosmetic surgeon who was actually trained and experienced in quite a different field. This physician was performing breast augmentation, tummy tucks, liposuction and more, and I was actually quite uncomfortable having to write about it. I realized at the time that the physician's patients just didn't know enough to ask the right questions.
Until the regulations governing who can call themselves what in the world of plastic surgery change (if they ever do), we need to let patients know they must look for surgeons who are certified specifically by the ABPS.
