Craniofacial Surgeons vs. Plastic Surgeon

by
Unlike other medical procedures (like hip or knee surgery), plastic surgery can be one of the most misunderstood surgical procedures in the healthcare industry. While it is true that many people undergo plastic surgery for purely cosmetic and aesthetic reasons, popular culture and general misconceptions tend to use the terms plastic and cosmetic surgery interchangeably. There are a variety of sub-specialties that revolve around cosmetic, plastic, and reconstructive surgery. All of them focus on a specific outcome for the patient, but can often be integrated with each other to provide the best outcome for the patient.
