Why Plastic Surgeons Do What They Do

It goes without saying that Plastic Surgeons should do Plastic Surgery. Right?!

Well, unfortunately this is not always the case! Plastic Surgery involves two important components: Cosmetic and Reconstructive. Reconstructive Plastic Surgery involves an operation that tries to bring normalcy to a genetic defect, congenital abnormality, trauma victim from abuse or violence, burn injuries, etc. Cosmetic surgery is a multi-billion dollar industry, cash or credit up-front surgery that enhances the normal patient. The patients in this category want to look better or feel better about themselves. Hence, a lot of practitioners (not plastic surgeons) are “dabbling” in this practice. Why you ask, because it can be lucrative and the lay public doesn’t really understand their qualifications.
