If all goes as planned...and you do not have to repeat anything along the general...four years of undergraduate work, four years of general medical school training...five to six years of general surgical training...and one to two more of sub-specialty / fellowship training. What's that, about 15 or so? That's of course, after successfully completing 13 years of K-12! 28 years of working hard and doing your best, ...doing well enough on the many tests along the way, ...and sticking with it, even when you felt you could not. Good Luck with your journey, wherever you are at on it... This is a different jeff, but it sounds as though the person above is trying to put people off becoming a plastic surgeon ...very lame. If you really want to become a plastic surgeon... go for it...don't let anyone hold you back or put you off.
