Plastic & Reconstructive SurgeryTweet
PAs in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery work in a variety of settings that encompass cosmetic surgery, burn management and reconstruction of both congenital and trauma related injuries. In particular, the PA in the cosmetics subspecialty will often have to deal with celebrities and other individuals who require heightened attention to confidentiality. Many plastic surgeons look for PAs with experience in a variety of surgical specialties as these skills frequently come into play within the scope of the practice.
Since many plastic surgeons practice in office-based operating rooms and "surgi-centers", the PA must be current in BCLS and ACLS and be comfortable with management of cardiac and respiratory emergencies.
Surgical PAs use the full breadth of PA training – from basic primary-care assessments to advanced intra-operative techniques – making Plastic and Reconstructive surgery a rewarding and fascinating specialty.
