Plastic Surgeon San Antonio

Whatís the difference between a cosmetic surgeon and a plastic surgeon? San Antonioís Dr. Patrick Schaner says that most people consider the two terms synonymous, but theyíre not. To be brief, all plastic surgeons can call themselves cosmetic surgeons if they wish, but the same doesnít apply for the latter. In fact, given that cosmetic surgery is not generally recognized as a specialization in itself in the US as well as on an international level those considering having a procedure done would do well to look into their physicianís background on plastic surgery, especially if the procedure is going to be invasive.

Even if youíre just considering liposuction in San Antonio, TX, which is a relatively straightforward procedure, opting for a physician who has at least completed a plastic surgery residency would be the smart choice. When itís your health and well-being on the line, you wonít want to be taking any unnecessary risks.
