- 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.
- Surgery of the Hand
Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

Mere words alone cannot express my gratitude for the awesome experience I had with Dr. Byrne and his staff at Regional Plastic Surgery Center. I had enormous breasts (50K) that were disabling. Dr. Byrne and his staff treated me with extreme kindness and made me feel very comfortable discussing my options and surgery. I felt as though they held my hand through the entire process, encouraging me and making sure I was comfortable and confident in my decision to have a breast reduction. I feel as though Dr. Byrne changed my life, and absolutely my quality of life. I had 10 pounds removed on each side and the recovery was much easier than I anticipated with very little pain. Now I am able to stand up from a sitting position without help, lay down without feeling like I'm going to suffocate and my lower neck and upper back are no longer hurting. I would highly recommend Dr. Byrne and his team to anyone and would use them again should I need any work done in the future.
I had a pretty bad joint displacement with fracture that had healed improperly after a partial joint replacement done by an orthopedic surgeon. ( Needless to say it did NOT, look like a normal finger after surgery and healing was complete) Lesson learned "see a hand specialist" It was completely crooked and extremely painful whenever bumped. After hitting it again I went to see Dr. Byrne to see if there was anything that could be done with my finger. He was extremely caring and reassuring that he could get my finger back to functional use. This was my dominant hand and extremely important to me. Dr. Byrne performed a full joint replacement on a Friday and his surgery scheduler called to check up on me several times over the weekend to make sure everything was going okay. (even gave me her personal cell number). Doctor Byrne is a great physician who truly cares about his patients and there concerns. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a hand surgeon!
