How do find the right plastic surgeon?
Which physician for which procedure? You're asking the wrong question. A specialist in plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery generally covers the entire spectrum. If you still have doubts about a surgeon's expertise and experience in the procedure in question, talk to him or her. We also advise obtaining a second opinion from another plastic surgeon.
