Cosmetic surgeons and doctors in Argentina: Accreditation and Training

Argentine medicine is renowned all over the world and physicians undergo a long and strict training which extends beyond graduation.  In order to practice newly graduated physicians must pass an exam to entitle them to a two-year internship in public hospitals offering free medical assistance to those who cannot afford private clinics.  In addition, physicians must carry out academic work and are awarded their credentials by the association or medical college of their specialization.  These credentials are renewed periodically and guarantee that the professional keeps him/herself up to date with new methodologies and technologies.

Individual surgeons must have a national medical licence in order to operate and professional bodies/organizations include The Argentinean Plastic Surgery Society (SACPER), which is affiliated to the Medical Association of Argentina (AMA) and helps with the continuous improvements and development of plastic surgeons in Argentina.  Plastic surgery in Ibero American countries is ruled by a common code of ethics and all plastic surgery boards affiliated to the Ibero-latinamerican federation of Plastic Surgery (FILACP) must abide by these.  (FILAP is the organisation which unites all the plastic surgeon societies and boards in Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries).  You can also check the surgeon's accreditation with organisations such as the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS), the Buenos Aires Plastic Surgery Society (SCPBA) and the Argentinean Plastic Surgery Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
