What is in a name? Many specialties perform cosmetic surgeries on the face; plastic surgeons (PRS), oral and maxillofacial surgeons (OMS), and otolaryngologist (ENT), and even occuloplastic surgeons. Plastic surgeons typically perform cosmetic enhancements of the body and face, while OMS, ENT, and occuloplastic surgeons typically specialize in just the face due to their background in training in this anatomic region. All of these of these specialties will typically pursue fellowship training after residency in cosmetic surgery if they wish to offer cosmetic procedures to their patients. For example, OMS’s and occuloplastic surgeons may undergo fellowships in facial cosmetic surgery, ENT’s may undergo training in facial plastic surgery, and plastic surgeons looking to enhance their skills on the face may undergo aesthetic or craniofacial fellowships. This list is by no means exhaustive and many other routes and specialties are available.

The second question that typically arises is the difference between cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery. Cosmetic surgery typically refers to just aesthetic and rejuvenating surgery, whereas plastic surgery typically also encompasses a reconstructive component. Neither is right or wrong and both are merely terms used to describe procedures performed.
