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.

I didn't find this Dr's bedside manner to be very warm at all. He was short and to the point (which I suppose some people might like). I was a bit perplexed that he did not see on my CT scan what a previous ENT AND a radiologist DID see on my CT. The very same thing that was also seen on a panoramic X-ray by a dentist and orthodontist. Which makes me very skeptical of his doctoring abilities. On the plus side, he was thorough when it came to explaining what he was certain my problem was, and I didn't have to wait long to be seen.
