- 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.
An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

If you are considering a cosmetic procedure you should schedule an appointment to see Dr. Raskin. The staff is very helpful and welcoming. Dr. Raskin took her time evaluating me and what procedure would give me the best outcome! She was very through explaining how she would achieve the best results. This was my first time getting botox and I was a little bit anxious and apprehensive prior to meeting with Dr. Elsa Raskin. She did a great job even on reassuring me there was nothing to worry about. In addition to the botox she suggested I got fillers to soften the lines around my lips. The procedure was painless and I was in and out of her office in less than a half hour. I had no bruising or swelling which meant a lot for me. The results were great yet subtle. I got so many compliments on how "great the skin looks" and "the youthful look on my face". I have not shared my "secret" with my friends yet (I am about to).... I am so pleased with the results that I wanted to publicly acknowledge how amazing Dr. Raskin is. I can barely wait for my mommy makeover in the near future.
Dr. Raskin is a wonderful physician who consistently provides excellent care. She is warm and caring and has called me at home after procedures to see how I was feeling. Her office staff is superb in all aspects. I have always been taken on time for my appointments and have been able to change the date or time easily to accomodate my work schedule. She is a consummate professional and I highly recommend her.
Dr. Raskin has treated both of my children in the Greenwich Hospital ER and in her office for follow up. One needed stitches in the middle of the night, the other over a holiday weekend. In both cases, she was the consummate professional and provided excellent care. Their scars healed perfectly with no infection and you can hardly notice the severity of their injuries. Dr. Raskin is the best plastic surgeon in the county, in my opinion.
