dermato-plastics?

Discussion in 'Dermatology' started by thegreenlight, Nov 28, 2008.

  1. Considering that fact that there is dermatopathology, pediatric dermatology, psychodermatology, pediatric plastic surgery, facial plastics, oculoplastics, etc, why isn't there a dermatoplastics? I would have thought that that would be an obvious combination, but I guess not.

    True dat. Cosmecuticals is a part of dermatology at large.

    It is. Whether it should be or not is a true point of contention.

    I highly doubt it. Dermatologists are not offered that kind of surgical training during their residency.

    Perhaps as part of a fellowship but most of the academic dermatologists in charge do not wish to see the field course in that direction.
