Dr. Boustred is board-certified in Plastic Surgery by the South African College of Medicine and by the Medical Council of New Zealand. He is also board-certified in General Surgery by the South African College of Medicine and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
All of which are earned by rigorous examination and qualifications. Dr. Boustred trained American plastic surgeons at Penn State University for 7 years, but for him to hold a certificate by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, they required his surgery training be completed in the USA.

Dr Boustred was born and raised in South Africa. He received his medical degree at the University Witwatersrand (a 6 year course) followed by internship at the Johannesburg academic hospital. His surgical residency of 5 years was at the University of Cape Town/Groote Schuur Hospital. A Neurosurgery fellowship completed this phase of his training and prepared him for medical mission work in Lesotho.
He returned to a faculty position at the University of Cape Town academic hospital as an attending surgeon. After several years in this position, he decided to train in Plastic Surgery, completing another 3 years of residency at the same university hospital, including a full year in Pediatric Plastic Surgery. He completed additional (optional) training in Plastic Surgery at the prestigious unit at Emory University Hospital under the mentorship of Professors John Bostwick and Foad Nahai.
