Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It can be divided into two main categories – reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. A plastic surgeon’s primary responsibility is performing surgical and non-surgical procedures, and they use a variety of reparative and reconstructive techniques to get the job done. 

Having published more than 30 articles and book chapters on various topics in plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Abramson has become a popular guest lecturer at area hospitals and residency programs on current trends in his field.
