Accreditation and qualification of cosmetic surgeons and doctors in Brazil

Plastic surgeons in Brazil study for six years at medical school, then two years in general surgery, followed by a further three years in plastic surgery.  They usually attend three to four plastic surgery symposiums in Brazil and abroad each year to ensure they are updated on changes and advancements in technology and procedures.

Medical facilities should be accredited by the Federal and State Medical Councils of Brazil (The Conselho Federal de Medicina - CFM, and the Sonselho Regional de Medicina - CRM).  The Brazilian Ministry of Health(Brazilian site only) is the governmental body responsible for the country’s health system and oversees all clinics and hospitals.  Cosmetic surgeons should be members of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery (SBCP), which is the second largest plastic surgery society in the world, and on its web site visitors can easily search for members to check credentials.  Other organisations include the Brazilian Medical Association and surgeons may also be accredited with the International Society of Aesthetic and Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
