Fellow members of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery must be board certified by an ABMS-approved surgical specialty or the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, be actively involved in cosmetic surgery by performing at least 100 cases per year, and provide a letter of recommendation from a current AACS Fellow member or hospital Chief of Staff.

Associate membership in AACS is for medical and dental professionals who have not yet met all of the requirements for Fellow membership, and want to pursue their interest in cosmetic surgery. Once Associate members become eligible, they may choose to upgrade their membership to Fellow.

All applicants for membership are reviewed by the Academy’s Board of Trustees.
