Best way to determine if the a surgeon you are considering or selected is a Board Certified Plastic and/or Cosmetic Surgeon??

What are the best websites to determine if a surgeon you are considering or one previously used holds the accreditation of being an actual Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and/or a Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon? Is it true that the The American Board of Plastic Surgery website and The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery website are the most reputable and trusted? Are there any others sites or points of contact that can be recommended?
