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 have had to undergo two procedures with Dr. Kierney. His first did a breast augmentation on me and the results were awful, I had a lip aides breast, it hung below where my normal breast was and looked like a botched breast augmentation. We addressed the outcome together and he agrees to fix my right breast. After undergoing another surgery, they covered the cost (I had to take work off and pay for medications), the results were still horrible. I've had 2 consultations with him since my second procedure. He has admitted that the pocket is too large creating too much mobility for my implant. If I flex my pectoral muscle it shoots into my armpit and creates a lot of pain. I cannot wear a bikini because it falls to the side leaving no breast on my chest at all. I've addressed the problems, had consultations etc and it is a surgical error. Dr. Kierney refuses to fix this error and has told me it will cost me over $3,000 to fix. Due to him not fixing his surgical error and my breast augmentation being awful and leaving me in pain and looking awful I would never recommend anyone go to him!
Going to talk to Kierney and not doing my research was the absolute biggest mistake of my life! I had my breast augmentation six years ago and I have had to have them redone four times because of Dr. Kierney, I went back over 12 different times and bad to have them fixed after the first two times he refused to even come in the room and would send in Annie his office manager in his place. I am 47 years old and I am from Southern California where the most amazing plastic surgeons are and have had a few surgeries myself. Good bedside manner of this doctor is the most despicable I have ever witnessed
