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. 

Dedicated to the field of aesthetic plastic surgery, Dr. Gerut has been a member of — and has lectured internationally at the meetings of — the prestigious American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. His innovations in cosmetic surgery have led to numerous newspaper and magazine articles, as well as national and international television appearances. With all these accomplishments, the plaque he treasures the most was given to him by the FDNY, made from World Trade Center Steel, for his service at ground zero on 9/11.
