In brief: Residency
College 4 years, med school 4 years, residency 5 years.
Then you can be a breast surgeon. Some people do a fellowship for an extra year but not necessary. www.drlugo.com.

Breast surgeons are general surgeons who have completed a 5 year residency training program. Many general surgeons perform other operations but keep educated on breast disease.
Some surgeons complete a 1-2 year fellowship (specific training in breast) program. Experience and keeping up with the current procedures and treatments are what make a good breast surgeon.
