Welcome to the official home of Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeons

The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery is a U.S. medical board that certifies surgeons in the specialty of cosmetic surgery. Our membership is restricted to surgeons who have completed specific training requirements and passed our rigorous examination process.

As diplomates of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, we pride ourselves on setting the highest standards for training, expertise, and ethical practice in the medical specialty of cosmetic surgery. After you read through what it takes for a physician to become board certified by the ABCS, you’ll see why choosing an ABCS surgeon means you’re choosing a genuine cosmetic surgery specialist.

Whether you are a patient considering cosmetic surgery or a physician seeking to advance your training and qualifications in the specialty of cosmetic surgery, we hope you find the resources here helpful as your conduct your research.
