Most licensed plastic surgeons work hard and devote much of their time to reconstructive surgery rather than to cosmetic enhancement. Though very skilled, they are in short supply.

While more effective governmental regulation and legal action might offer a start, there are serious systemic obstacles that are not easy to overcome.
