Certifications and Fellowship Trained

Loma Linda University Department of Plastic Surgery is committed to providing world-class comprehensive care. Our surgeons have extensive experience and are considered to be among the nation’s leaders and pioneers in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.


With years of training, many of our plastic surgeons are board-certified or board-eligible (surgeons who have completed the requirements for admission but are in the process of taking their medical specialty examination).

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) is the largest plastic surgery specialty organization worldwide. All surgeons listed on the ASPS directory are board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and / or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and are ASPS members.

Some of our plastic surgeons are also affiliated with the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the leading professional organization of plastic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
