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 am 18 years old, had breast reduction surgery in November and am thrilled with the results. I reached a size 34J over 3 years ago and thanks to Doctor Karp I am now a 34 DD. My mother researched many doctors and decided on Dr. Karp based on recommendations she received from two medical referral agencies as well as based on her initial conversation with the office that was upbeat and professional. Doctor Karp was professional and quick and his office staff was knowledgeable and spent a lot of time answering all questions. Everyone I interacted with at the office had a cheerful and positive demeanor and they made me excited to go ahead with the procedure and confident in Doctor Karp’s abilities. (On the morning of surgery, the nurse in the OR who works with many surgeons showed me photos of her daughter who was operated on by Dr. Karp- now that’s a compliment.) We drove over 2 hours each way for each visit, and we never waited more than 5 minutes for the appointments. Overall, the experience was wonderful and the results speak for themselves.
Dr. Karp performed my breast reduction October 20, 2017. I recently had my final post op appointment, and I can honestly say this surgery has changed my life. I went from 34I to approximately 34D/DD. My scars have healed splendidly, and all of my physical ailments associated with my large breasts have all but disappeared (back/shoulder/neck pain, rashes and scarring from bras, headaches). Dr. Karp and his staff are topnotch, and made this experience seamless and stress-free. I have zero regrets.
One of the biggest disappointments of my life. It’s been more than a year since my breast reduction surgery and it’s unfathomable that I am still this large. The difference in my size before surgery and after is minimal. I am just a different shape - not size. Still huge and uncomfortable. My complaints have fallen on deaf ears. Massive disappointment all around.
Dr. Nolan Karp did an outstanding surgery on my reconstruction of my breasts in May 2017.. I had oversized breasts that had to be reduced for health reasons. He did such a excellent job that a month later I did not have any scars. He is the best plastic surgeon in the world and I highly recommend him. His staff was also good . Any questions that I had before surgery, Dr. Karp answered every one which he made me feel confident that what I was doing was right.
