The Importance of Board Certification

To optimize your safety and the quality of your results, it's important to choose a doctor who is qualified and experienced in the procedure you are considering. This process is greatly simplified when you choose a doctor who is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), as Dr. Olson is.

American Board of Plastic Surgery

Why should you look for certification by The ABPS instead of other boards? The ABPS is 1 of only 24 elite medical specialty boards administered by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). The ABMS is an independent, nonprofit organization created to protect patients. The ABPS requires that all surgeons it certifies have:

  • Graduated from an accredited 4-year medical school
  • Completed 5 years of surgical training as a resident surgeon, at least 2 of which must be in plastic surgery
  • Practiced plastic surgery for at least 2 years after completing residency training
  • Passed comprehensive written and oral examinations in plastic surgery

You can be confident that by earning certification by The ABPS, Dr. Olson is thoroughly trained and experienced in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery procedures of the face, breasts, and body.
