Whether you are a medical student, a specialist or a general practitioner, if you are to practice cosmetic surgery, first of all, you have to decide if you have an eye for beauty for yourself, and then try your best to acquire surgical procedure for attaining ideal beauty patients want.
Particularly cosmetic surgical procedure is closely connected with a variety of fields of specialization such as ophthalmology, otolaryngology, dermatology, oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic reconstructive surgery, ob/gyn and general surgery. That is the reason you should acquire knowledge and skills through a special training course. The reality is ,however, significant numbers of cosmetic surgeons are performing surgical procedures based on the skills picked up from experienced friends and acquaintances on an apprenticeship basis.
No one can deny the fact that well-organized training program based on the most up-to-date information and vast experience is far superior to this type of personal learning not merely in the efficiency of the education itself, the reliability of surgical procedure and improvement of skills but also in the securement of evidential matters for proper training. To carry out the mission, it is the formal residency program that is absolutely needed. The same is true of cosmetic medicine.
