When a surgeon pursues a specialty in plastic and reconstructive surgery, they know they will need to bring more than their advanced surgical skills to each procedure. With each patient’s needs being vastly different from one another, the surgeon will need to be technically flawless as well as artistic in helping to shape the person’s body into whatever image they are expecting.
