The Concerns Of A Plastic Surgeon

Sep 13, 2008
Ask a child what he or she wants to be, and you will get a variety of different responses. Some want to be movie stars, others want to be professional athletes, and others prefer a more practical profession in the medical field. There are many different kinds of doctors a person can be as well.

However, arguably one of the most interesting professions in the medical world is that of a plastic surgeon. After all, being a plastic surgeon means being able to completely change an aspect of a person's appearance. Sometimes the surgeon does this not just for those who are dissatisfied with how they look, but they do it as reconstructive surgery for those who have been in accidents or born deformed.

The job of a plastic surgeon is one that places the surgeon in the spotlight. A plastic surgeon who gives the patient a natural look is a surgeon who gets all the more clients. Really, each client that has work done with a particular surgeon becomes a walking advertisement for that surgeon.

This kind of surgeon is not unlike any other surgeon in the medical field in the amount of training that needs to be done. Candidates will have to go through at least 10 years of medical school in total, and during that time will have to prefect their chosen area of cosmetic surgery. How do they perfect it? Through written tests, as well as internships and hands-on practice with cadavers.

Being this kind of surgeon is akin to being an artist. This kind of surgeon needs to be aware of the best possible combination of science and skill. Thanks to technology being as advanced as it is today, the tools available to a surgeon make all the difference in perfecting the outcome of each procedure.

A surgeon in this field needs to get rid of the "plastic" stereotype in these kinds of procedures. Especially in the early days of cosmetic procedures, the people with things like facelifts and breast implants looked like they had obviously had work done. This made many people look not only silly, but, in the cases of some celebrities, it made their enhanced featured more famous than any talent that they might have originally had.

Therefore, it is especially important for the surgeon to make the patient look the best, and the most natural that they possibly can. Their client should be recognizable, but also much improved. People who elect to have these kinds of procedures generally have the financial means to do so, and so an obvious benefit to being this kind of surgeon is the salary that can be made.

However, there is a considerable amount of pressure on these kinds of surgeons because of the high instance of celebrity clients that they have. They have to keep the celebrity looking as good as possible, or else run the risk of being sued. Some surgeons try too hard to please their clients (Kenny Rogers is a good example with his recent facelift) and run the risk of being sued. So, caution and precision is key.
