It's difficult to choose a single example of what makes plastic surgery rewarding. Whether it's the smile on a child's face after his cleft lip has been corrected, the hugs from my many breast cancer patients made whole again both physically and psychologically, or helping restore confidence in people who can return to a milestone class reunion looking very much like their yearbook picture, I am rewarded by the joy I have brought to my patients.
