Common questions & answers

Q: Who is a plastic surgeon?

A: A plastic surgeon is a doctor who performs surgery on people for improving the appearance of the face or other body parts. The plastic surgery may be performed either for medical treatment or as a cosmetic procedure to enhance appearance.

Q: Can a general surgeon also be a plastic surgeon?

A: A general surgeon who has obtained a master's degree (M.Ch) in plastic surgery can become a plastic surgeon. Without having a certified degree and experience in plastic surgery, a general surgeon is not allowed to perform such kind of operation.

Q: Does a plastic surgeon only perform cosmetic surgery?

A: No, a plastic surgeon performs reconstructive surgeries on patients who have acquired deformities due to accidents, burns or by birth. Other than cosmetic surgeries, a plastic surgeon may perform surgeries of the urinary tracts and sex organs, hands and legs.

Q: Do plastic surgeons have training in laser treatment?

A: Laser treatment is commonly used as a part of cosmetic surgery. Therefore, plastic surgeons are well-trained to carry out laser treatment. Hair removal, removal of the surface layer of the skin and treatment of acne are some procedures commonly done with laser.

Q: Is a dermatologist and plastic surgeon different?

A: Yes, a dermatologist is different from a plastic surgeon. A dermatologist deals with skin problems by prescribing medicines and can perform minor non-surgical procedures on patients. However, a dermatologist cannot perform major surgeries. On the other hand, a plastic surgeon performs operations on people, as a part of medical treatment and also for cosmetic purposes.
