Who is a Plastic Surgeon?

A plastic surgeon is a licensed medical doctor trained in the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. They mainly focus on reconstructive procedures and can see patients who have conditions like injuries, birth disorders, illnesses, or burns.

Many plastic surgeons decide to become cosmetic surgeons and do procedures to change a patient’s appearance. But not all plastic surgeons are cosmetic surgeons.

Plastic surgery is so much more than cosmetic surgery. While cosmetic surgery is probably the most visible aspect of plastic surgery, it is a comparatively small part of the specialty. Plastic surgery might be used not only to improve a person's look but also to restore a patient's appearance after an accident or recovery from cancer or another disease. A plastic surgeon may work on any area of the body.

Plastic surgeons do not own disease as cancer doctors do. They are trained to work all over the body on all types of diseases and frequently coordinate with other physicians in a multi-disciplinary group. Plastic surgeons achieve special skills, such as how to design a skin graft. They know how to transfer tissues from one part of the body to another, manage critical wounds, and use implantable materials like plastic or metal.

What are the qualifications of a Plastic Surgeon?

An aspiring candidate has to clear an entrance test to get admission into a medical college. Students can pursue Plastic Surgery courses after completing their Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree. This is a five-and-a-half-year course that includes basic medical education and training. All medical students have to complete this program irrespective of their area of specialization.

One must hold a Master of Surgery (MS) or doctor of osteopathy (D.O.) degree before they can undergo post-graduate training in plastic surgery. The MS or DO program usually takes 2-3 years to complete.

After you become a licensed physician, you have to complete a 3-year residency program in general surgery involving clinical rotations in various types of surgery. You can prefer to take a three-year residency in plastic surgery. You could complete a one-year fellowship program if you aim to specialize in a subspecialty of plastic surgery.

If they find that your body is not fit for surgery, they will recommend certain medication in order to make your body ready for the procedure. Many surgeons order routine lab tests before you are admitted to the hospital or before certain outpatient procedures. The tests help find possible problems that might complicate surgery if not found and treated early. Some of the most common tests done before plastic surgery include:


Chest X-rays

White blood count
