Unlike some cosmetic surgeons in Honolulu, Dr. Shim Ching is a plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the only recognized certification for plastic surgeons in the U.S. What exactly does that mean and why is it so important?
What Dr. Ching’s Board Certification in Plastic Surgery Means
To become certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, your surgeon must first complete an approved residency in plastic surgery. Additionally, they must pass a written qualifying examination, followed by an oral certifying examination.
Dr. Ching has passed this rigorous 3-step process. It’s important to him, but it’s even more important to you as a prospective client and patient. His certification is an assurance to you of his knowledge, ability, and experience in cosmetic plastic surgery.
