Dear Queenbugg,

All plastic surgeons do a basic medical degree, called M.B. Ch.B for a period of six years. Thereafter one year of residency must be completed in a state hospital, and today doctors also need to complete a community health year. Thereafter you undergo specialist training for a further five years. The typical plastic surgeon has completed between 11 and 13 years of medical training, depending on how long it took to find a post at an academic department.
