What is the difference between a facial plastic surgeon and a (general) plastic surgeon?
Facial plastic surgeons perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgery on the face, head, and neck regions only. Training includes one or two years of post-graduate training in general surgery residency and at least four additional years of specialty training in head and neck surgery, followed by a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. A general plastic surgeon performs whole body plastic surgery. Training includes three to five years in general surgery residency and two years of specialty training in all body areas.
What is aesthetic facial plastic surgery?
Aesthetic plastic surgery can be structural or rejuvenative. Structural cosmetic surgery can include changing the shape of the nose, ears, chin, cheekbones and neckline. Rejuvenative facial plastic surgery includes procedures that will reverse the signs of aging.
