    I enjoy being a plastic surgeon as it makes a real difference to people's lives.
Understanding their hope of what an operation might achieve and then creating
that by surgery, is a unique procedure every time. I enjoy the feedback from the
patients, they've been anxious to come through the process and are usually
delighted and feel it was all worthwhile.
