Advancement Prospects

Once physicians become licensed as cosmetic surgeons, their opportunities for advancement are largely up to them. For many cosmetic surgeons, if they have not already done so, becoming board certified by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery is a first step in advancing their careers. As consumers become more informed about their options for cosmetic surgery, cosmetic surgeons with added credentials such as board certifications are likely to be in higher demand. Many associations, such as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, offer a screening service for consumers to check a cosmetic surgeon's qualifications when choosing a surgeon.
