Can someone please explain the difference between a board certified plastic surgeon and a double board certified plastic surgeon. Both are in the american board of plastic surgery.
Whats the Difference Between Board Certified and Double Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?

Some surgeons like to impress people thinking that if one board is good two are twice as better. The truth is the second board certification often refers to a field of study before plastic surgery ( i.e. ENT, orthopedics, oral surgery, urology, or general surgery). There is only one board of plastic surgery. That is the most important one when considering a plastic surgeon.
