Posted By American Med Spa Association, Tuesday, March 16, 2021

To celebrate Patient Safety Awareness Week (March 14-20, 2021), the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS) has announced a new way for patients to identify a cosmetic surgeon with a particular focus on safety: Cosmetic Surgery Patient Safety (CSPS) certification.
"While all of our board-certified cosmetic surgeons are already required to understand and meet high safety standards, this added credential shows patients the surgeon has gone above and beyond in prioritizing safety matters," explained Dr. Wilbur Hah, Texas cosmetic surgeon and president of the board.
To display the Cosmetic Surgery Patient Safety badge, board-certified cosmetic surgeons must pass a specialized, in-depth Patient Safety Exam in addition to the fellowship training and rigorous exams they completed to become a board-certified cosmetic surgeon. The CSPS logo is intended to reassure patients that not only is their surgeon highly trained in cosmetic procedures, but they are also up to date on the latest research-driven best practices for patient safety.
