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.

I took my daughter for a revision of a scar that resulted from a fall when she was a just a toddler that left a punctured deeply depressed scar on her forehead. Even though it was small it was quite noticeable because of its depth. My daughter who is now in her late teens was ready to get the scar fixed and Dr. Branhamâs credentials seem to fit the bill, especially based on all the amazing pictures of revised scars â before/after pictures on his website. To make the long story short, after Dr. Branhamâs revision, the little scar is no longer as deep but still is just as noticeable because it is at least twice as wide but still recessed. What used to be one pitted scar, looks like two pitted scars â albeit shallower. In my research, I came upon a textbook in plastic surgery and a couple of things mentioned is to make sure the incision will result in a no-tension closure so that the endings do not end up with âdog earsâ and that the stitches not be so tight that they leave ârailroad tracksâ. Both of these occurred in the surgery scar that Dr. Branham created. In fact, right after the surgery when my daughter removed the bandage that night to change it, my heart fell to my stomach when I saw the kind of work that was done. I saw the very tight tension in the middle (so tight in fact that it looks like it would tear the skin) and I could see the gaping ends (i.e., dog ears). In listening to Dr. Branham, you get the impression that he really knows what he is talking about and I believe he does --- but the knowledge unfortunately did not translate to hand skills â at least not in my daughterâs case. The dermabrasion helped but definitely not enough. It is still a noticeably depressed and irregular scar. He knows I am disappointed and he admitted then that his expertise is more on rhinoplasty. I wished he admitted this to me before he took on my daughterâs case. For readers, do your due diligence. Ask for references â previous clients who had similar type of surgery, get two or three or those and ask to see their before and after pictures. And just as importantly, listen to your gut feeling â itâs a very fleeting feeling so pay close attention to it. Donât rely solely on credentials (though those are very important but not enough) and whatâs on the website. Ask lots of questions. Donât assume that the pictures on the website are the doctorâs patients. That I still donât know as I never asked â for it was too late for us. It is one of the most distressing experiences of my life.
