Want to know the secret to choosing a qualified surgeon for plastic surgery? Look at his or her credentials.

To be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, a doctor must have completed four years of medical school, three years of clinical training in general surgery, and a residency of at least two years in an accredited plastic surgery hospital program. In addition, the doctor must pass the scrutiny of his or her peers.

Dr. Moliver received his medical school degree at Texas Tech University School of Medicine, Lubbock, Texas. He completed his six years of general surgery residency at Texas Tech Regional Academic Health Science Center, El Paso, Texas, from 1984-1990, serving as Chief Resident, 1989-90. He completed his plastic surgery residency at St. Joseph Hospital, Houston, Texas, from 1990-1992. During that time, he trained with world-renowned plastic surgeons, including the inventor of the breast implant, Dr. Thomas Cronin, and the past Editor-in-Chief of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (the official journal of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery), Dr. Thomas M. Biggs. Dr Moliver also found time to be a Major in the U.S. Army Reserves Medical Corps from which he retired a few years ago.
