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.

Dr Gardner is not so good in some areas and great in others. If you are looking for rhinoplasty or nasal surgery to breath better, run away as fast as you can. I went for a deviated septum, crooked nose and a bump and the fact I can't breath. I can not breath any better, my bump is gone (which is good), however, my nose is more crooked ( I have had several people tell me my nose is crooked, when before it was maybe one or two), and he actually made my nose shorter, which I hate. He talks as if he knows what he is doing, but my results are not. The worse part is he says it looks great. I actually went in to another DR in his practice, and he told me that my nose was crooked. and then the nurse gave me a name of a Dr in Salt Lake that does great work. If you take your children to him to get their tousils out then he is great.
Dr. Gardner is the best! He has done three surgeries on my children. My son has had two, one tongue and one sinus, he also took my daughters tonsils out. He is skilled and experienced . I would easily wait six months if I had to, but less than a month is typical. My son's sinus was less than 24 hours due to a cancelation . Wow walk in for a checkup and have the surgery the next morning, we just got lucky. But now we have the whole summer after the two week healing.
