As orthopedic surgeons are the masters of bones, plastic surgeons are masters of soft tissue management and manipulation.

Wikipedia defines soft tissue like this: “In anatomy, soft tissue includes the tissues that connect, support, or surround other structures and organs of the body, not being hard tissue such as bone. Soft tissue includes tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, fibrous tissues, fat, and synovial membranes (which are connective tissue), and muscles, nerves and blood vessels (which are not connective tissue)”.
