In a fellows' words
"Completing a fellowship through the AACS has allowed me to embark in a career in cosmetic surgery. Without this training, my practice would not resemble what it does today. In addition to the experience and education that I gained, I have been delightfully surprised by the camaraderie of the surgeons I met within the organization."
