The American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery is an organization that represents surgeons who are certified by the ABMS or the Royal College of physicians and Surgeons in Canada and practicing Plastic Facial Surgery. A facial plastic surgeon is usually board certified in otolaryngology – surgery of the head and neck. To become board certified, a physician must pass a series of rigorous oral and written tests about medical procedures and practices. Many AAFPRS surgeons specialize further by undertaking an additional year’s fellowship in Plastic or Reconstructive Facial surgery to become certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS).
