ABC7’s The More in the Morning team spoke with Dr. Michael K. Kim Monday morning about what it takes to become a Board-Certified plastic surgeon. He explains the training and certifications needed to become a plastic surgeon and what to look for when you are choosing a surgeon.
The American Board of Medical Specialists (ABMS) is a board that oversees all the medical specialities.
Potential patients can call ABMS at 1-800-776-2378 to see if their surgeon is board certified.
