We are far ahead of the days when plastic surgery as a medical specialty was feared and for long was a taboo topic to talk about. Modern-day Plastic Surgery has evolved into broader themes, interacts efficiently with other disciplines of medicine, and further extends to merging the art of physical forms with medical science.
All that having said, the search and access of Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeons are muddled with over-information and often less experienced surgeons who aren’t as sharp. So it’s important that we know surgeons who are not only qualified professionals but also experienced, trained, and exposed enough to offer a practice that is holistic in nature.
