"ANYONE CAN WEAR A WHITE COAT, Not everyone is board certified in plastic surgery. Do your homework."

As Dr. Lewis Obi was flying to Los Angeles aboard Delta Airlines last week, he happened to see a full page public information bulletin in Delta's SKY magazine.

What is so unique is that out of approximately 750,000 physicians in the United States, there are only 8119 board certified plastic surgeons. This year plastic surgeons are celebrating the 75th anniversary of the American Board of plastic surgery. This website has this published a notice:

75th Anniversary of the ASPS
1937 - 2012
Recognizing with honor the 8119 Diplomates who have achieved
board certification in plastic surgery
75 years of executing the Board's mission to promote safe, ethical, efficacious plastic surgery to the public by maintaining high standards for the education, examination, certification and maintenance of certification of plastic surgeons
as specialists and subspecialists.

For Dr. Lewis Obi's decades of maintaining these
high standards he is proud to exhibit the logo of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons
