- 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.
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. These doctors treat patients through both medical and surgical means. For instance, an otolaryngologist may treat an obstruction of the nasal passage, caused by malformation of the nose, through rhinoplasty.

Appts. were few and far in between. Extremely long waiting time with discourteous staff. Will hold off final judgement for a bit longer.
I had a Brow Lift and Eyelid/Neck/midFace surgery. Needing to have ALL redone. Not a great Dr. No follow up after surgery and no help when Lids/Neck were sagging. Staff on commission perhaps -- very aggressive and quick to commit to "satisfied clients" w/out delivering on references. Using Dr. MacDonald as a surgeon was one of the worst decisions I have ever made
It's difficult to sum up Dr. Macdonald in a few short sentences, but I'll do my best. This is a doctor who is kind, gentle and compassionate as well as being a knowledgeable physician. He came highly recommended by a trusted source and put my fears and anxieties to rest when I met him for my consultation. He walked me through the procedure and patiently answered all my questions. I had a septorhinoplasty, with turbinate reduction and I couldn't be happier with the results. I had no idea breathing could and should be this easy! Dr. Macdonald also refined my bulbous tip into something that looks natural and beautiful. His bedside manner is something that other surgeons should study and practice, not to mention his skill, talent and eye for aesthetics. He has a calming presence and genuinely cares about patient comfort before surgery and during the recovery process. Look no further, you've found the right surgeon.
Dr. MacDonald performed the Pillar procedure and turbinate reduction on me four weeks ago (for snoring and sleep apnea). I am totally satisfied with the results, and my entire family is even happier for the quiet nights they are now experiencing. I would unequivocably recommend Dr.MacDonald.I had been diagnosed with moderate sleep apnea several years ago, and have had several solutions proposed to me by a number of doctors, most of whom told me I would either need to sleep with a CPAP machine for the rest of my life or face severely disfiguring surgery.I went in to see him for my snoring (which bothered my whole family) and incidentally discussed sleep apnea with him.Dr. MacDonald read my sleep report, then showed be, with an-anatomical chart of the neck and throat, how my particular case compared to the diagrams. He recommended against certain procedures and suggested a turbinate reduction procedure as well as a ramped up version of the Pillar snoring procedure.Since then I HAVE NOT SNORED ONCE, nor have I been awakened by my sleep apnea. I sleep the whole night through, have lots of dreams, and wake up energetic and ready to go. And it's only been one month. I was told I would really need a year to appreciate the full effects. I am thrilled with the results.
