Different kind of cosmetic surgeon in Japan

In the United States, most doctors working at aesthetic clinics are plastic surgeons or dermatologists. In facilities dealing with cosmetic surgery, there are always plastic surgeons. In the United States, it is common practice for cosmetic surgeons to be further targeted by plastic surgeons with further training, and it is common sense that cosmetic surgeons are also plastic surgeons.

In Japan, however, there are cases where a considerable number of “beauty surgeons” are advocating without undergoing plastic surgery training in Japan. In some cases, they rarely experience surgical training and are suddenly advertised as cosmetic surgeons. This is the case even if the clinic is large.

This is something you can’t think of in the US. There are other differences between Japan and the United States, but I would like to talk about this at another time.
