ABPS membership

What does it mean when plastic surgeon has ABPS membership status patrisipating /not current? Do I need to stay away from this doctor?

ABPS = American Board of Plastic Surgery.
If stateside, you want to find a surgeon with this certification, and yes, it should be active, not lapsed. This is the premier gold-standard certification in the USA for plastic surgeons. There are other boards (e.g., American Board of Cosmetic Surgery) that appear to be the same, but they are not. The latter has relaxed requirements on plastic surgery, thus it does not carry the elite high standard pedigree that the former does.
