- 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.
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.

Changed My Life
Self-verified patient of Dr. Stephen R Seal - Posted on September 13th, 2019
I had a bump on my nose that was the result of 'tension growth' in the sinus cartilage. This was a cosmetic and functional woe of mine for 20 years. I finally made a consultation appointment with Dr. Seal, who explained how he would fix it. I emphasized I didn't want a completely different nose, just a straighter bridge and no bump. Also, being able to breath out of my nostrils would be nice! I was nervous, but felt in capable hands with Dr. Seal, so I made a surgery appointment the next month. I was informed on every detail regarding recovery, and had no complications. Surgery itself went smoothly, and I had a week of wearing a splint on my nose before its removal. Once I saw the result, I nearly cried. A normal nose, and finally being able to breathe. Thank you, Dr. Seal.

I've been a patient of his for 5 years. His bedside manner is the absolute worse but that can be overlooked if a surgeon is competent. After my first nasal surgery, one of my nostrils collapsed...he said it was just scar tissue and would get better with time..after a year of putting me off he removed some "scar tissue"...which made NO improvement. Three years and many complications later he recommended a revision surgery. He was "confident" he could restore me to functioning by using cartilage from my ear to reopen the nose. Long story short I'm worse off than before the revision. I have near constant infection, deformity, constant pain, breathing impairment...the list goes on. Years of patience and many thousands of dollars later I'm searching for another surgeon.

Was rude, condescending, pretended that anatomy of the sinuses that my primary told me to speak to him about were unknown. I asked him "have you not heard of that?" And suddeny he knew exactly what i was talking about but my questions were still stupid. If he treated my family the way he treated me i would be in jail right now. Literally rolled his eyes when i was talking to him. Sprayed something in my throat, never told me that it would make my throat numb. A certified nurse's assistant would have known to do that. I would never allow him to treat my neighbor's cat.
