Frank and thorough assessments help plastic surgeons choose treatment plans that best suit their patients. Perform Surgical and Non-Surgical Operations A plastic surgeon’s primary responsibility is performing surgical and non-surgical procedures, and they use a variety of reparative and reconstructive techniques to get the job done.
Cosmetic plastic surgeons commonly perform breast augmentations and reductions, liposuction, and facelifts. Reconstructive plastic surgeonsuse craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and other techniques to repair injuries.

They schedule follow-up examsto check that wounds and incisions are healing properly. These appointments are also used to remove stitches, teach patients how to ensure continued health and wellness, and address any lingering questions or concerns.
