Since a plastic surgeon is a doctor, it would be best to take academically rigorous classes - 4 years of English, 4 years of science, etc. Good luck! Know you chemistry, calculous, and biology. I'm in college right now and those are the most challenging courses that usually weed people out when they wan't to persue medical school. If you don't do well in these classes when you first get into college, it's easy to get discouraged. GO FOR IT!
