    I was following a Plastic Surgeon yesterday, and his comment about being competitive was to (among other things) try to do rotations with, and get letters from the "Big Names" in Plastic Surgery.
    Can anyone say who these folks might be or how/where to do the research necessary to find out?
    Thanks to all for your time and help!

    Certainly. The biggest names today in the field are obvious. look at the programs with the largest reps. UTSW ( Rod J. Rohrich), NYU (Mccarthy), JH(Manson), Harvard(James May. i am currently working with RJR at UTSW.

    Hi guys,

    The list above is wonderful but rather outdated. I was wondering if the experts could contribute to defining who the big names in 2014 are, perhaps divided into subspecialties.

    Craniofacial:

    Microsurgery:

    Breast surgery:

    Hand:

    Body contouring:

    Aesthetics:

    Look forward to lots of replies : )

    Good Question.......!
    It's really great to see some of the great names in this respective field.
    In-fact as per my view it really tough to name because worldwide there are plenty of surgeons available who are in the respective field and they did really well, and what I saw everybody is mentioning only those who they know.
