On December 18th, 2018, the Medical Board of California (MBC) denied the rights of exceptionally trained surgeons to advertise their board certification after they demonstrated that they meet every criteria required to state their board certification, according to a media release.
“The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS) is the only certifying board dedicated exclusively to the specialty of cosmetic surgery,” states Peter Canalia, Esq, executive director ABCS, in a media release. “We are disappointed in their decision to support legislation that limits patient choice and is a clear violation of commercial free speech and antitrust and anti-competitive laws.”
