What is a Plastic Surgeon?

A plastic surgeon is a surgeon who is qualified to carry out plastic surgery. A cosmetic surgeon is very different. You choose to have cosmetic surgery to improve your appearance, but plastic surgery is necessary for medical reasons, due to illness, accidents, and birth disorders. It is dedicated to reconstruction rather than enhancement. 

Reconstructive surgery covers things like craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, and burn treatment. It’s used to repair missing or damaged tissue and skin in order to restore the function so it’s as close as possible to the norm. Cosmetic or aesthetic surgery simply improves the appearance.

When to see a Plastic Surgeon?

Most people are referred to a plastic surgeons by their GP or a specialist consultant.
