What It Means to Be a Fellow Of the American College of Surgeons

In terms of professional credentials, Fellowship is a step beyond board certification, already a difficult status to achieve.

Surgeons pursuing Fellowship with the American College of Surgeons must show consistently exceptional ability, training, standards, ethics, and patient outcomes. They are thoroughly evaluated by multiple committees, and their status is ultimately decided by the Board of Regents.

It’s a great privilege for a surgeon to have FACS next to their name. Once accepted, Fellows take a pledge to always adhere to the high conduct standards expected of College members.

Dr. Zavell honors the trust you have placed in him by choosing him as your plastic surgeon.

He is ready to exceed your expectations.

I had the privilege of Dr Zavell working with me for a breast augmentation. I am extremely happy with my results, and the care I received. I cannot say enough good things, and would highly recommend Dr Zavell and his team.
