Plastic Surgery

Plastic Surgery is a specific surgical specialty, with the medical doctor acquiring additional qualifications enabling specialization in the surgical management of conditions requiring repair, reconstruction, or replacement of the body’s physical defects of form or function. Amongst other areas, most common procedures may involve cosmetic enhancement or repair of the skin (burns), face (craniofacial), hand and other extremities, breast (implants or reduction mammoplasties), and external genitalia (reassignment). The Plastic Surgeon uses aesthetics and cosmetic surgical principles to both enhance overall appearance and to optimize the results of reconstructive procedures. This surgeon possesses advanced expertise and skill in the tailoring and use of skin grafts, flaps, free tissue transfer, and tissue replantation.
