Which Website is the Best Choice for Choosing a Plastic Surgeon; the APAS or the ASPS?

I see that many doctors refer to these Societies in their answers. But which one should be the primary source of information when chooseing a plastic surgeon? I am assuming that the ASAPS is geared more towards cosmetic training? Is this accurate? I am specifically researching for someone to perform abdiminoplasty if that helps. Thanks!

Both the ASAP and ASPS website are good referral sources for surgeons performing abdominoplasties.


Members of the Aesthetic Society are all board certified in plastic surgery as are all members of the ASPS.  Either site is a good source of referrals.
