A plastic surgeon is a licensed medical doctor trained in patient interactions, trauma care and basic surgery techniques, as well as specialized areas, such as tissue transfer, body contouring and laser surgery. Plastic and reconstructive surgery deals with the restoration of normal form and function. It is a varied specialty involving adults and children and encompassing a wide range of conditions in different parts of the body.
Plastic surgery is so much more than “cosmetic or aesthetic” surgery. While cosmetic surgery is probably the most visible and perhaps the most glamorous aspect of plastic surgery, it’s a relatively small part of the specialty. Plastic surgery may be used not only to enhance a person’s looks, but also to restore a patient’s appearance following an accident or a bout with cancer or another disease. A plastic surgeon may work on nearly any area of the body, and many specialize in a particular body location, such as the head and neck or hands.
Did you know that nearly half of patients going to primary care offices have some sort of ear, nose or throat issue?
Think about it. Almost everyone has had a stuffy nose, clogged ears, or sore throat, but ENT specialists treat a diverse range of conditions and disorders of the ears, nose, throat, head, and neck region—from simple to severe, for all persons, at all stages of life.
ENT specialists are not only medical doctors who can treat your sinus headache, your child’s swimmer’s ear, or your dad’s sleep apnea. They are also surgeons who can perform extremely delicate operations to restore hearing of the middle ear, open blocked airways, remove head, neck, and throat cancers, and rebuild these essential structures.
