What Is Plastic Surgery?
Plastic Surgery is a surgical sub-specialty which primarily concerns itself with the treatment of cosmetic issues, as well as the treatment of various types of injuries and conditions. Plastic surgeons are usually trained in General Surgery, followed by additional training in the field of Plastic Surgery. They are board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, which is a section of the American Board of Medical Specialties. It is important to note that any licensed physician can legally perform cosmetic surgery, but in order to assure that you receive the best care, you should ensure that your surgeon is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
