I've seen a couple threads talking about how difficult it is for a DO to become a plastic surgeon. But then again, I've seen posts discussing that someone could just match into a general surgery residency and then do a cosmetic fellowship(which isn't too competitive). So let's settle this: How difficult is it for a DO to become a cosmetic plastic surgeon? I'm pretty set on becoming one, and have applied to both MD and DO schools. If I go the DO route, how difficult will it be for me to obtain a fellowship, considering, I'm really only interested in cosmetic surgeries? Now whichever route, PRS residency, plastics fellowship or cosmetic fellowship does not matter so much to me, so long as I am proficient and certified to perform cosmetic procedures.
