Plastic Surgery is a very vast field and caters to sub-specialties as diverse as craniofacial surgery, maxilla-facial surgery, orthognathic surgery, micro-vascular surgery, hand surgery, reconstructive surgery post onco-surgery, cosmetic surgery, oculoplastic surgery, burns surgery, etc. Each of these are sub-specialties in their own right. It is very difficult for any one surgeon to specialize in and excel in even a few of these fields. However, in India and in many developing nations, the trend until now was for plastic surgeons to attempt to perform all of these. This is where super-specialization in plastic surgery comes in.
Facial Plastic Surgery is a nascent and growing super-specialty in India, but is quite in demand in the USA & other Western nations currently. Currently, majority of the facial surgeries in the US are performed by this particular group of plastic surgeons, who are super-specialized in surgeries of the cosmetic surgeries of the facial tissues, eyelid tissues, lacrimal, orbital, facial & peri-ocular tissues. Since these surgeons train specifically in plastic surgery of the face tissues & practice exclusively in the face, outcomes in all facial surgeries tend to be better than general plastic surgeons who operate all over the body.
It is important for you as a patient to be aware of what sort of plastic surgery and/or cosmetic surgery you are seeking and then seek the appropriate trained plastic surgeon for the same. It is important to demystify the term “plastic surgeon” hence and ask your surgeon specific questions to determine his experience and training in the particular surgery i.e. rhinoplasty, which you may be seeking. Please do remember no one surgeon can ever excel at it all and no one size fits all!
