Dr. Lazcano’s fourth-year plastic surgery rotations however, left him unfulfilled and frustrated with what he felt were perceived to be the flaws within the system. He found greater enjoyment and satisfaction in exploring and treating deeper and more complex issues found in the lives of plastic surgery patients. Concerned with physicality, Plastic Surgery treats at the ground level. Focused on mentality, Psychiatry penetrates to the root.
