- 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 otolaryngologist is more commonly referred to as an ENT, someone that can treat medical issues you may be having with you ears, nose, or throat. This is a physician who is specially trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the ear, nose, sinuses, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, head, and neck. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.

Cannot say enough positive things about this Dr., his staff and the facility. I felt cared 'for' and cared 'about' during the entire experience. Because I had several hours to travel to have the consultation appointment and this procedure performed, he & his staff made every effort to accommodate me in all ways possible. They all went out of their way to make MY schedule their own. I.E., when I arrived early for the consultation, they worked me right in; when we were concerned about finding our way from the office to the Bed and Breakfast after the procedure, they offered to 'lead us there'; when we made our 'dry run' from the Bed and Breakfast to the office (so as to be there on time for the procedure early the next morning) & were sitting in the parking lot of the facility for a few minutes --- who comes walking out to our car in his 'scrubs' to greet us?? -- Yes, Dr. Blackledge. He 'first-name' introduced himself to my husband & began asking if I was ready for my procedure the next morning! If you are even THINKING about having this work done, he's your man and his staff is your staff... What a difference his skill, caring and concern have made in my opinion of my reflection in the mirror. A million words of appreciation to the Blackledge group.
