Plastic Surgeon Frequently Asked Questions


What Does Plastic Surgery Involve?

Plastic surgery includes both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures. Plastic surgery includes many types of reconstructive surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, the treatment of burns, as well as the repair, reconstruction, or replacement of physical defects of form or function. Normally, reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body that may be caused by trauma, infection, developmental abnormalities, congenital anomalies, disease, or tumors. Cosmetic surgery is normally performed to repair or reshape "normal" structures of the body to improve appearance.

What Procedures do Plastic Surgeons Perform?

A plastic surgeon can perform numerous procedures for patients depending on their needs including blepharoplasty, botox injections, breast reconstruction, breast reduction, cleft lip and palate repair, facial reconstructive procedures, facial scar revision, fat grafting, forehead lift, hair replacement, hand surgery, laser surgery, mentoplasty, otoplasty, plasma skin regeneration, nose job (rhinoplasty), rhytidectomy, scar revision, skin resurfacing, skin tightening, and tissue expansion.

Will Insurance Cover Plastic Surgery?

Aesthetic plastic surgery is considered cosmetic and is therefore not covered by insurance in most cases. An insurance provider may cover certain procedures such as breast reductions, eyelifts, or abdominolpasty if the patient has a medical condition that the surgery will treat. Insurance will cover the cost of procedures considered to be reconstructive such as a breast reconstruction after mastectomy.

What Should I Consider When Choosing a Plastic Surgeon?

When selecting a local plastic surgeon, here are a few questions to ask:

  • Does your office accept my insurance?
  • Are you Board Certified?
  • Do you use electronic medical records?
  • How quickly can I get an appointment?
  • Do you offer evening or weekend hours?
  • Will you be performing the surgical procedure?
  • Does the surgeon specialize in any specific area?
  • How many times have you performed this specific procedure?
  • Do you have patient references available?
  • Do you offer before & after surgery photos?

Plastic Surgeon

I used to sell breast implants, so I have seen the good and the bad. First of all, be prepared to spend that little extra for extraordinary work, it will be worth in in the long run.
That said, Garth Fisher, M.D, in Beverly Hills, does good work--but tends to the large size.
I would recommend Lawrence Shaw, M.D. in Scottsdale, AZ. He does the most natural work I have ever seen.
