What is Cosmetic Surgery?

Cosmetic or Aesthetic Surgery is a sub-specialty in Medicine that deals with the science of enhancement.

A physician or doctor needs to specialize first (after taking up medicine and passing the medical board examination) in a surgical specialty (residency) before he/she may be qualified to take the next step of being a cosmetic or aesthetic surgeon.  These training stages will guarantee that patients who will go under the knife (in the name of beauty) are in the hands of qualified, experienced, and safe surgeons.

The Philippine Board of Cosmetic Surgery certifies doctors who practice this sub-specialty. Check the Philippine Society for Cosmetic Surgery (PSCS) for members.
