Dr. Stephen Weber Becomes Diplomate of American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

The American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery recently certified me as a "Diplomate" of the  board. This connotes board certification in the highly-competitive field of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. At Lone Tree Facial Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center we seek to uphold the rigorous standards of the ABFPRS and provide cutting-edge, safe, ethical care to our patients. Both Dr. Schaler and I maintain double board certification in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology and Head & Neck Surgery.

"The ABFPRS credential signifies that your surgeon:   

  1. Has completed an approved residency after medical school in one of two surgical specialties focusing on facial plastic surgery (otolaryngology-head and neck surgery or plastic surgery);
  2. Is double boarded, having earned prior certification in one of those specialties through the American Board of Medical Specialties or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Canada;
  3. Has successfully completed a two-day examination;
  4. Has submitted for peer-review an acceptable record of at least two years’ clinical experience, including operative reports of a minimum 100 facial plastic surgeries;
  5. Operates in an accredited facility; and
  6. Holds proper licensure and subscribes to the ABFPRS Code of Ethics."
