Building thePlasticsPro in 2022

thePlasticsInterview - January 2022

Yes, that's right... this month!

This is going to be great. The goal is to create a definitive companion for the upcoming Plastic Surgery Interviews.

Check out this sneak-peak of a common interview station - "Call the Boss and Consent - Necrotizing Fasciitis".

thePlasticsQuiz - March 2022

P'Fella cannot wait to launch the largest online question bank for Plastic Surgery trainees. So many supporters of the thePlasticsFella's mission have been creating amazing questions.

Check out what to expect here.

thePlasticsPod - July 2022

Hmm, yes.. going to be jumping on the bandwagon here. It's not really going to be an educational podcast though. Something different. Something entertaining. 

If you think you could be a good co-host then email Would love to hear from you! 

thePlasticsCommunity - September 2022

thePlasticsFella has identified 1 potential gap in Plastic Surgery Training. Mentorship, support, advice, and general discussion. It doesn't really happen on social media. So P'Fella wants to create a safe space for thoughtful and helpful discussions on Plastic Surgery topics. It's a work in progress! 

thePlasticsApp - December 2022

P'Fella has always been reluctant to develop an iOS or Android app. Knowledge-based apps have one major issue - they are keeping against Google. It is natural human instance to google something first. And, Google gets it right the majority of the time.

Good thing, this isn't going to be a knowledge-based app. Stay tuned!
