Why ASPS Certification Matters

Here at the Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Dr. Hing, Dr. Beil and Dr. Sherick are certified by the ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons) and Dr. Charafeddine is in the process of earning his board certification. Some may wonder what this means and why it is important. Let us assure you that this is a key characteristic you should look for when searching for a plastic surgeon. Unfortunately, there are many doctors without plastic surgical training that advertise cosmetic surgery procedures to the public.
