Board Certification assures that the physician has completed a rigorous training and examination process. Doctors certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery have devoted all of their training to performing cosmetic and reconstructive surgery on the face and head and neck, particularly facelifts, eyelid tucks (blepharoplasty), brow and forehead lifts and rhinoplasty ("nose job").
