I have always enjoyed the varied and extensive nature of plastic surgery. The creative nature of our field is what attracted me to plastic surgery in the first place. From the routine removal of facial skin cancers, to the functional reconstruction of hand surgery, to the challenge of reconstructing a child disfigured by a birth defect; all of these skills apply to the rejuvenation sought in cosmetic surgery.
