I don't know if I am just bad at searching or if the information isn't out there...but this is what I got going on. I am working on a novel with my main character being a serial killer. I have an extensive background story and I really love this story idea I have. But my problem is I wish to make it realistic. I always write fantasy and science fiction so this is a jump for me, a challenge I am excited for. Even so, there are two bits of information I can't seem to get to the bottom of that make or break my story. 1) My main character is supposed to be a plastic surgeon. This occupation is important and I REALLY REALLY hope my guess is accurate. Are plastic surgeons the type of doctor who work with burn and skin cancer patients? Really anything major dealing with skin. I need my main character to have the ability to work with skin and he needs to be able to have enough patients to support his private practice. This is very important to my grand master scheme. This leads us to my other issue...however less important, sort of. 2) The setting, assuming a plastic surgeon is the occupation that fits what I explained above, is also pretty important. I need a US city that isn't super cliché (such as Miami Florida) and has a high rate of skin related issues. Some of the major examples are burn and skin cancer victims. I need to make sure he is located somewhere that will give him a lot of business. Any help or advice is great! Summary: I need to know what city has a high rate of skin related illnesses/burns, and I need to know what type of doctor is commonly doing the skin graphs. SKIN GRAPHS is the huge important aspect of my grand scheme. Thanks to all!
