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 went to see Dr Columbus when I thought my implants were leaking. He agreed that they looked and felt like they were. My implants were put in by another doctor that no longer lives in the area and my implants were saline which made them hard and not natural looking. We talked about how I wanted to look, I thought I wanted to go bigger and of course I wanted the saline gone and the silicon put in. Dr Columbus held my hand until I was put to sleep, he did my surgery and to his surprise the implants were not leaking, the pocket was slipping. Dr Columbus did replace the implants with the silicon and he did not take me to the size I wanted. When I awoke and was told about the situation and the size the first thing I asked was why did you not take me to the size I wanted? His reply was do you want to walk around looking unnatural and have people stare at you? I have been going to see him for 9 years now, he dose my Botox injections. Every time he walks in the room it's like talking to friend he never rushes out, we talk about everything. I will ask about doing other things like fillers and he always says to me, do you know how many stars that would love to look like you and you are a natural. I will say to him when he walks in make me beautiful and his response is you are already beautiful. Now on to his MA Laura, I don't know of a assistant who fits in with him more than Laura. Laura also makes you feel beautiful and goes above and beyond for you. Laura is a Beauty herself with a fun spirit. Hands down the best doctor and ma in the practice.
I met with Dr. Columbus after having a failed consultation with another Dr. at the Plastic Surgery Group practice. I liked the fact that Dr. Columbus actually listened to my concerns/goals. I felt like the experience was more of a collaboration instead of a dictation. I decided to go with Dr. Columbus for my breast augmentation. Although he decided, during the operation, to go with an implant that was slightly smaller than my first choice, I believe that he did an amazing job. I am so happy with the results. From the beginning, I felt confident in his knowledge and experience and I would recommend his work to my loved ones. I already have!
Very VERY happy. When i decided to do this i asked a friend that works in the local breast center who I should go to since she sees all of the local breast surgeons work. She said hands down go to dr Columbus. They can actually pick out his work because they are so perfect. I made the right choice. He and his nurse Laura are very personable and very good at what they do. When all the other doctors said go bigger, he was the one that said you could but do you want to look natural or fake? I trusted his judgment and it was the best decision I've made. NO REGRETS! It looks and feels natural. 34A pre op to a 34C. If you go with this Dr., you will not regret it
If I would have known my breasts would look like they do I would not have wasted my money. I had to under go 4 operations for my one breast. The first time I the bruising covered my entire breast and side. Still not normal and is very uncomfortable. Dr. Columbus suggest trying on different sizes of implants before the surgery. I told him I did not want a huge change and now they are too BIG! This is terrible for me.
