Job Description for Physician / Doctor, Plastic Surgeon
Plastic surgeons help create quality-of-life improvements for patients, generally working within a specialty that focuses on changing the appearance of various body parts or facial features. They work frequently to assist in the long-term care of burn patients and other victims of disfiguring injuries. Some plastic surgeons focus primarily on elective procedures such as facelifts, rhinoplasty, and breast augmentation and reduction. They may also work with other specialists to assist in corrective procedures for birth defects or natal injuries. Additionally, plastic surgeons are common consultants for oncologists, as some cancer surgeries may alter the patient's appearance; the plastic surgeon may be able to mitigate these effects.Read More...
Plastic surgeons work in a variety of institutions. Some plastic surgeons are on staff of hospitals, serve as on-call physicians, or work as consultant specialists; the need to work on-call shifts occasionally requires work at odd times of day and night at hospitals. Specialists typically work in a private clinical setting; in these cases, the plastic surgeon generally works regular business hours in a smaller clinical environment, offering preoperative consultations, surgical services, and postoperative therapy as needed.
To work as a plastic surgeon or doctor within that specialty, an individual must first complete an undergraduate and then an accredited medical school program, along with residency and internship requirements. Plastic surgeons must usually be board certified, which requires additional training beyond the standard general practitioner education. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
