Have you ever heard the saying, “Every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square”? It’s the same with plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgeons — every plastic surgeon can perform cosmetic procedures, but not every cosmetic surgeon can perform the same procedures as a plastic surgeon.
Why? Because plastic surgeons, such as Dr. Tenley Lawton in Newport Beach, are also reconstructive surgeons. That means they have the extensive training necessary to actually restore parts of the body that may have been damaged in an accident or impacted by disease.
