Accreditation and qualification of cosmetic surgeons and doctors in Egypt

Doctors study at the Faculty of Medicine at Cairo University, which is the same graduate course that medical students in the most developed countries follow, and takes six years to complete.  Before the Diploma in Surgery can be taken the doctor needs to have two to three years experience in surgery after the initial basic house officer training.  Prior to the MD Surgery qualification the doctor needs five to six years specialist training in plastic and reconstructive surgery. 

During this time, Egyptian plastic surgeons gain a wide range of experience in surgical procedures such as face lift and new cosmetic techniques like endoscopic surgery for the endoscopic brow lift.

Professional organisations

Cosmetic surgeons should be listed on the Health Register Licence of Consultant Plastic Surgeons (similar to the General Medical Council’s Specialist Register) and be members of The Egyptian Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (ESPRS) which includes around 250 doctors.  Membership is strict and is limited to those with a PhD in plastic surgery.  Surgeons may also be members of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
