Dana Goldberg: The ASPS stands for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. It's actually a professional organization and you have to be a board certified plastic surgeon to become a member of the ASPS, and that's where stringency comes in.

To become board certified, you have to have at least five to six years of surgical training, with specifically two to three years of plastic surgery. You also have to pass a two-day written examination, followed by an oral examination a year later where all of your first year's surgical cases are analyzed by a committee. And you have to defend your results.

What is the ASPS?

Doctor Dana Goldberg explains what is the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) is and why this board certification is so important to have.
