What is a Plastic Surgeon?
A plastic surgeon is a doctor who specializes in shaping the body’s form into desired dimensions. The elite field of plastic surgery attracts the most brilliant medical students. The plastic surgery board requires a residency in specific fields as well as an additional residency in plastic surgery. Candidates must pass comprehensive exams before attaining certification and must have their license renewed at regular intervals.
Am I an Appropriate Candidate for Plastic Surgery?
If you have a cosmetic flaw or physical defect that has eroded your self-confidence, you may be a good candidate for corrective surgery. If you are a confident person who is bothered by a physical characteristic, you may also be a good candidate. The important thing is to discuss your expectations with the surgeon so that the two of you can develop achievable goals that will satisfy you both.
