- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

A Disturbing Pattern of Behavior
Self-verified patient of Barry M Zide - Posted on April 20th, 2019
About six months ago, a patient of Dr. Zide was so upset by a surgery he performed on his forehead he left negative reviews on several websites. On one of those websites Dr. Zide left a dismissive denial. He may have gone too far, however, by disclosing that the patient got his scar from a fight. Clearly, this was an attempt to discredit the patient. Clearly, he was hoping the public would take the view that a person who gets into a fights cannot be trusted to write an honest review. Then, as if to counter the negative review, positive reviews about forehead surgeries started popping up (See below). I encourage Dr. Zide to post before-and-after pictures of his surgeries. Until he does, I really don't think he deserves anyone's trust.

He is old and his psychomotor skills are showing signs of age-related deterioration. He can talk about surgery, but his days of actually doing surgery are over. Stay away from him. He promises everything, but delivers nothing. His phony positive reviews are the last gasps of his dying practice.
An Evil Clown
Self-verified patient of Barry M Zide - Posted on March 23rd, 2019
Where are they? Where are all the "really impressive" before-and-after photos that support Dr. Barry Zide's dozens of rave reviews? They must be around here somewhere, because the first thing the "genius" does when he gets a new patient is stand him against the wall and take a picture. Surely, patients so happy with their doctor will be glad to let him post their pictures. Privacy can be protected by putting black rectangles over the eyes. Is "HIPAA" getting in the way again? The federal law for which Dr. Zide boasts his own "translation"? Let's ask "Einstein" -- for "once he is gone there will be no other" -- to take time from his tennis game to explain to the unwashed masses what he means when he writes: "And what about the patient who wants to see preoperative and postoperative photographs that you do not have? My latest ploy for that is great: 'The new HIPAA, the Health Insurance Privacy Act (my translation), which ensures patient confidentiality, does not allow us to show those pictures anymore. I wish I could, though; they were impressive, really.' The methods by which I try to keep a patient from going elsewhere unnecessarily do not go beyond this petty, nebulous presentation of data. Some of my colleagues, though, are downright creative." -- From "I Am an Expert for Anything You Want" by Zide, Barry M. published in 2002 in "Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery." Let me guess: The language is intended to be understood by "surgeons only"? Nope, because Zide writes in plain English. "Latest ploy"? Anybody need a medical dictionary to understand that? "Petty, nebulous presentation of data"? How about a cheap, evasive euphemism for baldfaced lie? Is he trying to be funny? Then we need proof that The Barry Zide Show stays OUTSIDE the operating room. By inviting his colleagues to join him in mocking HIPAA, this evil clown flaunts the bottomless contempt he feels for the law and the rights of others. His sleazy bibliographical references, e.g., "Secrets of Power Persuasion," are self-discrediting and require no further comment from me. His final sentence shows us how he gives himself permission to be a crook. In other places he writes "I'm through fighting it" and "Now I go with the flow." In other words, since his colleagues are unethical, it's okay for him to be unethical, too. This kind of moral reasoning might be cute in a 4-year-old, but in a highly educated adult it is characteristic of psychopathy. If Zide is an excellent surgeon why are there no videos of him performing surgery? Excellent surgeons post videos of their work. If he is highly esteemed why has he never been department chair? If he is such a "genius" why didn't he go straight to medical school? Why did he go to dental school first? When a doctor gets his DMD and then his MD, and gets both from the same school, we are right to wonder whether his acceptance into the MD program had more to do with politics than with merit. Why, if everybody likes him, does he carry a gun, the permit for which he obtained by getting himself appointed constable? Ask these questions, and get answers that make sense, before you let Constable Zide come anywhere near you with a scalpel. Barry Zide conned and manipulated me in ways consistent with his twisted writings. Then he butchered me. He writes about the plastic surgery business as if describing a criminal enterprise, giving step-by-step instruction on how to con and manipulate patients. He writes disparagingly of patients and colleagues alike, calling the one entitled and narcissistic, and the other sociopathic. He seems perversely blind to the fact that these are perfect descriptions of himself. He's blind to other things, too. For example, it is an understatement to say that he gets medical ethics wrong. He gets it wrong, sideways, upside down, inside out and backwards. Medical doctors are supposed to emphasize the care and protection of the public, not "business, money and stature." The George Plunkitt of plastic surgery needs to be told, loud and clear, that there is no such thing as "honest graft." Barry the dentist; Barry the surgeon; Barry the professor; Barry the constable; Barry the legal expert for hire. Have I missed anything? Barry "a finger in every pie" Zide, by attaching himself (like a wood tick) to powerful professions, has made himself the ultimate insider. He should take a degree in meteorology, too. That way Barry the weatherman can speak with authority when he wets on people's legs and tells them it's raining out. The positive reviews praise him as a compassionate genius. The negative reviews condemn him as an evil fraud. Which is it? It can't be both. Yes, there is good and bad in each of us, but not to such extremes. When solving an unknown, begin with a known. Begin with his writings, for they reveal his true nature. Read them. Study them. Think about them. Ask others what they think. Then decide for yourself whether Dr. Barry Zide is devil or angel, genius or fraud.
