- 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.

My first experience with Dr. Shenko was in 2002 when I needed hand surgery for DeQuervain's Tendonitis. He was friendly, knowledgeable, calming, and reassuring. The surgery went fabulously and the recovery went well. As fate would have it, I would require Dr. Shenko's talent again for bi-lateral breast reconstruction following mastectomy due to breast cancer in 2009. His compassion, patience, understanding, and excellent surgical skills have been a godsend to me during a most difficult and emotional time in my life. Dr. Shenko listens and answers all of my questions & concerns filly. He gives the time needed to each and every patient equally. I'm so glad Dr. Shenko & his team will be caring for my reconstruction follow up and well-being for the years to come. Dr. Shenko, Tina, Pat, and the entire staff are top notch, and I highly recommend this practice.
I personally haven't done any procedure with dr Shanko yet. But I am seriously considering geting my tummy tuck revision with him. The first time I got a tummy tuck was about a year ago with another Doctor in Boston who I don't want to go back to. And so far on my search for another doctor has not been the easiest thing. Most doctor don't like touching other doctors mess . But when i meat with Dr Shanko my first impression was he is a really nice guy very down to earth and he really took the time to talk to me about everything and he's welling to help me . I really really liked him . Plus I heard so many great things about his work. And since I had such a bad experience with another doctor "who's supposed to be the best" but very rude and unsupportive. And still messed up . I would definitely go for a doctor that doesn't just have surgery skills cause ones you've gone under the knife anything could happen even with the best doctor out there and after you had surgery you definitely want a good doctor who is patient and supportive to his patients not someone who just have surgical skills . Because you are still going to need the doctor support after surgery. So thats why I'm really considering getting my surgery with him... and that been my experience with him so far .
