- 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.

My review may echo some of the other person's about Dr. Coburn...I, too, have been a patient for many years, and agree he is truly in a class by himself...not only as a gifted, talented surgeon, but as a kind, caring person, who, on a daily basis, always goes the extra mile.I always felt comfortable seeing him, he and his staff always made me feel like I was in a country doctor's office, rather than in a high end plastic surgeon's practice. Over the years, he had some truly special nurses, Bridget, Laura and Susan in particular, all of whom I can never forget, who always followed up after my surgery and took such wonderful care of me when I recovered in his brownstone recovery area. Anesthetist Bob and Barbara at the front desk completed the circle of caring. I feel privileged that I was his patient. No adequate words can express everything...all positive!
Dr. C is like "God" Beloved,revered, worshiped. No superlative is adequate to describe this man. He is as close to a deity as a mere mortal can be! He can do anything. He performs miracles, and general good deeds. He is gifted, and special, resilient, strong, ethical, brilliant, purposeful, truly exemplary as a surgeon, and as if that were not enough, he is a darn good citizen and world class entrepreneur. Oh, and a fine man... truly, a very fine human being. There are no words to portray who he is, what he has done for so many. He is one of those rare truly self actualized beings, in how he has lived his life, rebounded from strife, fulfilled his potential, contributed to society, his generosity of spirit, his myriad accomplishments, entrepreneurial ventures, accolades, and great character. I have known him 30 years. No he did not pay me to say this stuff. Just ask anybody and you will see, the feedback is universal. I've been his patient, and referred others as well, for decades. I am now lucky enough to count him as a friend. To know him is to love him. To have him work on you is divine. His talents are a gift. Results are consistent. The man is a master. Moreover, with all that going for him, he is still humble, just a regular guy. Compassionate,Kind, Empathetic. Oh, and his bedside manner is great; rare among surgeons. Barbara and the office staff are phenomenal, always going that extra mile to give that caring touch. Dr. and everyone in the practice are approachable, and even reachable by phone, a real feat for those in the stratosphere, who may even walk on water! (hope I do not offend anybody by saying so!) I just had great experiences with this beloved man, so I don't mind saying so. He is the finest surgeon. Friends, and peers concur. Nothing bad, ever! The only " bad" thing is : they offer you delicious cookies, (very naughty!) and fresh piping hot coffee , with 1/2 and 1/2, yum...as you come in... tempting to those of us who need to watch our girlish figures! :-) Dr. Coburn treats men as well as women, and is sincere in his wish to help everybody. You will be delighted with the very natural looking results. Dr.C was 1 of Dr. Reese's proteges. Dr.Reese pioneered the techniques for plastic surgery which are still in use today. If you have been very ,very good in this life, you have earned the right, to deserve a consultation with Dr. Coburn. Ask him to fix whatever it is you feel you want to improve. He is very honest and ethical too. Someone wanted something done and he said no, he honestly did not think it was the right procedure for her at the time because he did not think it was necessary or well- advised. Like I said, to know him is to love him. You won't find a better person or Doctor, anywhere in the known universe. Look, "caveat emptor", buyer- beware, sure there are risks. On rare occasions, I am sure things can and do go wrong, but usually nothing more than a major nuisance. Talk to the Doctor about risks and what you want done. I don't want to sell anybody a bill of goods, but if you are going to undergo plastic surgery and take the plunge, this is the guy you want to do the work. I really never had problems, and neither did anyone I know. Dr. Coburn is safe, conservative, as well as artistic and humane. But don't take my word. I am not a doctor and cannot give you medical advice. Do your own due diligence on his safety record, and ask questions in the consultation. I am 100% certain you will be as impressed as everybody else on the planet. This gentleman is in a league of his own; Stellar!
