- 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.

I should never have gone to him. He recommended a type of breast augmentation that turned out not to be appropriate for me and it left me disfigured. He comes across as very confident and knowledgeable which led me to trust him. I had a terrible outcome because he chose to do things his way as opposed to what I asked him to do. I felt like he used me as a test dummy. I asked for a refund for his services and he said he would get back to me but never did, despite another request from me. He offered to do another surgery for free even though he caused the problem and has no experience in repairing the damage he did. I woke up with a second degree burn in my cleavage area that has left a permanent scar. I have had another surgery to fix the problems. I had to pay all of the expenses myself. He has never apologized or acknowledged that he was wrong - only offered to operate on me again. Needless to say, I would never let him touch me again, so that offer is worthless to me. I can't imagine how he will be able to build a cosmetic surgery practice if this is how he treats people. A lawsuit in this situation is difficult because the expense of a lawsuit can be much more than it's worth in terms of the amount of settlement that could possibly be obtained. Since I have been able to get a reasonable result with additional surgery the necessary element of significant permanent damage is not there. My lawyer declined to pursue a lawsuit. A physician can cause harm and/or commit malpractice without consequence. My only recourse is to let the public know about my experience.
