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 was recently diagnosed with DCIS breast cancer and underwent a bilateral mastectomy. Dr. Rizzuto was chosen to do the reconstruction by my surgeon because of Dr. Rizzuto's commitment to excellence, detail, and level of care. Little did I understand how important that decision was. Dr. Rizzuto's attention to his patient is of the highest caliber. He and his office staff have been an incredible support for me and my family. His talent as a plastic surgeon, along with his dedication to patients, has become one of my life's unexpected blessings. I can only be joyful that such a wonderful doctor has been part of this journey.
I am so grateful to Dr. Rizzuto and his nurse, Michelle. I had a left breast mastectectomy and Dr. Rizzuto did the breast reconstruction. I found him to be caring, attentive to detail, very willing to talk and to listen. And I am quite happy with the result--my new left breast is very similar in appearance to my right one. That can't be the easiest thing to do. And the scar is minimal. I can't say enough about Dr. Rizzuto--if you need a plastic surgeon, this is the guy.
