I just wanted to say thank you very much to Dr. Gross and all his staff for the excellent treatment that I received from the very first time I visited the clinic to the surgery day. Dr. Gross was really patient and really clear in the manner he explained the rhinoplasty procedure and its steps. It made me really happy and confident to receive a phone call from Dr. Gross the night after surgery to check how I was doing and if I needed anything. This shows that (thank God) there are still excellent doctors that really worry and take care of their patients from beginning to end. Thank you to everybody at Primera Plastic Surgery, you are the best! I am really happy with my results!*
As the field of surgery has expanded over the years, surgeons have chosen to specialize in more and more specific areas, first in plastic surgery and then in facial plastic surgery, due to the complex anatomy of the face. With demand for these extensively trained specialists on the rise, the ABFPRS was founded in 1986.
The ABFPRS was organized to recognize facial plastic surgeons who had moved beyond initial certification. Other requirements include written and oral examinations, peer review of at least 50 facial plastic surgery cases per year over 2 years, appropriate medical licensing, and adherence to the ABFPRS code of ethics.
The ABFPRS written and oral examinations are statistically valid and meet or exceed ABMS standards. To achieve certification, surgeons must have successfully completed an ACGME-approved residency training in 1 of the 2 fields comprehensively addressing facial surgery, head and neck surgery, or general plastic surgery. This differentiates the ABFPRS from other boards that certify in areas outside of their respective physicians' ACGME training.
Unlike other cosmetic surgery certifying bodies, the ABFPRS is accepted by every state medical board, including Florida, and has certified 750 surgeons throughout the United States and Canada. ABFPRS certification is the definitive sign of a qualified specialist in facial plastic surgery.
