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.

I had a rhinoplasty done by Dr Gliklich when he first started in the business. 1989. My future ex husband had smashed my face in while I was sleeping. Collapsed my left nasal passage, broke my cheek bone, eye socket....I was a mess. My surgery was "self pay" and I didn't have a lot to spend. Dr Gliklich did a beautiful first class job that til this day no one can ever tell I had any work done. I had interviewed 3 surgeons and chose him for his presentation of procedures, explanation and expectations, he guided me to what was the most natural and best fit for my face. Thanks, seeing your smiling face here was reassuring. I was hoping you had expanded to other types of plastic surgery as my body needs a lift.... but why change when you are so great at what you do best?... Faces.
Doctor is ok. I could not make a follow up appointment after surgery and hematoma complication, which Dr. Gliklich addressed satisfactorily. His very disinterested staff at the front desk, gave me a new appointment 6 weeks later....I asked if this would be ok with the doctor and got no reply. Beautiful office, but the reception and nursing staff are among the worst I have ever experienced . Missy in particular is rude, patronizing and judgemental. So out of place in the reception position that I assumed she must be a relative.
I'm a well informed consumer of plastic surgery, "I do my homework" , i.e. it's taken me two years of consults with Boston area physicians to decide upon Dr. Gliklich for my rhinoplasty and "mini face lift"! I wish I'd seen Dr. Gliklich first.Dr. Gliklich has a calm, caring, understated approach. He listens to your concerns and thoughtfully addresses each one. No rush. He's not aggressive, but moderate in his approach to plastic surgery ( and no, I didn't need a full face & brow lift at 40!). His practice is restricted to facial plastic surgery. He isn't a "jack of all trades" doing liposuction, breast augmentation, etc. but is an expert at what he does.
