Cosmetic surgeons in Turkey : Doctor accreditation and qualifications

After graduating from medical school students must take exams in order to become a cosmetic surgeon and qualify for entrance to the Cosmetic Surgery Specialist Program.  Residency takes up to six and a half years, after which students are given the title of Certified Plastic Surgeon, MD.

Surgeons must be members of the Turkish Society of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery, an organisation which aims to advance Turkish Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery through scientific studies and meetings and provides international educational standards for the next generation of plastic and reconstructive surgeons.

If a dentist wishes to perform cosmetic dentistry then he/she must be a member of the Turkish Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry.

The Republic of Turkey Ministry of Health regulates the clinics and hospitals in Turkey and each clinic and hospital must meet the ministry’s standards and requirements.  The Turkish Medical Association is the Turkish equivalent to the British Medical Association.
