There is a significant difference between plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgeons. Plastic surgeons receive specialized training in cosmetic and resconstructive surgery and are board-certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Over the years, a variety of other “boards” have emerged to certify other doctors who wish to perform cosmetic surgery.
A plastic surgeon can be involve in reconstructive surgery that restores function and appearance of an injured face or body part. This can involve surgery to repair birth defects like cleft lip or cosmetic repair after removal of skin cancer or breast cancer.
Other times, a plastic surgeon may be involved when a person seeks to augment or enhance their cosmetic appearance of face, breasts, or other body part.
