Plastic surgeon specialization is the fact that particular surgeons do their best work in a fixed number of operations:
Board Certified Plastic Surgeons don’t specialize in all areas of plastic surgery. Most have their favorite specialties and tend to focus on those. While many surgeons do most procedures, they become well known for the ones that they enjoy the most and become most proficient. They are generally discovered by word of mouth and by the popular rating sites that are found on the internet.
The rest of this piece isn’t really worth reading, but this part does highlight the fact that most plastic surgeons perform certain types of surgery better than others. I am a breast and body surgeon and do not offer nose jobs for example.
