As plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery have become more prevalent, the number of people calling themselves ‘cosmetic surgeons’ has seemed to increase. The terms plastic surgeon and cosmetic surgeon sound very similar, but many people do not know that anyone with a medical degree can call themselves a cosmetic surgeon. But these people have not undergone the extensive surgical training required of a plastic surgeon. So, how can you tell the difference? If you search for ‘breast surgery in Melbourne’, how do you know that the results you receive are for a fully qualified plastic surgeon in Melbourne? The key is in the letters that follow the person’s name. If you see the letters ‘FRACS’ following a medical professional’s name, it means that they have spent at least eight years undergoing specialist surgical training. You can find out more about the FRACS qualification and how to verify a surgeon’s credentials by reading Mr Ives’ guide to choosing your surgeon.
