Does the cosmetic surgeon have significant experience?

Most Plastic plastic surgeons spend most of their working time in the reconstructive aspects of plastic surgery, mainly in hospitals. They treat such conditions as hand injuries, breast reduction and reconstruction after cancer, facial bone fractures, burns, etc. Cosmetic surgery is, for these surgeons, one facet of a larger general discipline of plastic surgery. Most believe experience in one enhances capability in the other.Further specialization improves ones expertise.

Dr. Gelfant has over 20 years of experiences as a plastic surgeon. Although at one time Dr. Gelfant had an extensive practice in facial trauma, sun damage and skin cancer, his practice is now almost exclusively devoted to cosmetic surgery, with special emphasis on endoscopic (small incision) breast and forehead procedures, facelift, and body contour surgery.
