Changes & Differences
The new IFFPSS certification process has now been running successfully for a couple of years now and as the application process and eligibility criteria have now been formalised, we thought we would update you on this.
Notably, it has changed significantly from prior years so it is important that all potential applicants are aware of these differences.

The European Board is dedicated to measuring the qualifications of candidate surgeons against certain rigorous standards.Among the core endeavors of the EBCFPRS is the administration of the European Board exam in facial plastic surgery.
