Facial Surgery can be defined as a branch of regional plastic surgery.
Specialisation in Facial Surgery does not lead to a registered speciality degree
Europe. Three core surgical specialities deal with Facial Surgery: Oro-Maxillo-Facial
Surgery, Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Surgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
General plastic surgeons focus mainly on facial soft tissue surgery and nose jobs,
ENT/head and neck surgeons focus mainly on nose jobs and ear abnormalities, and
maxillo-facial surgeons focus mainly on skeletal abnormalities.
Training in all of these disciplines (maxillo-facial surgery, head & neck surgery
plastic surgery) is the best manner in which to establish a more universal expertise.
