To become a legitimate Cosmetic Surgeon, a doctor (after 9 years of studies ending high school) needs to first undergo a residency training in a surgical specialty (ie general surgery, ent, ophthalmology, ob-gyne, etc) for 4 to 5 years.
Upon completion, he/she further goes into the sub-specialty training in Cosmetic Surgery for 2 years. Here surgeons are trained with exposure to different Cosmetic Surgery cases in hospitals and clinics where actual procedures are done.
The Philippine Society for Cosmetic Surgery offers a 2-year comprehensive centre-based Fellowship Training in Cosmetic Surgery at the Centuria Medical Makati.
Training staff are composed of top-notchebd experienced Cosmetic Surgeons from the Philippines and Korea.
