From an anthropological viewpoint there exists only one human/humanoid race currently habitating earth, homo sapiens sapiens, "the human race" (since the neanderthals -homo sapiens neanderthalis - died out anyway). Race has everything to do with bone structure. Often bone structure is key in distinquishing the race, species, etc. of various hominid remains. Often the term race is mistakenly used in place of ethnicity. Whether bone structure is determined by ones ethnicity is an entirely different question. Yes ethnic groups do generally share many superficial/physical characteristics (thats what makes them "groupable") such as similar bone structure, skin tone....

Is there a difference in demand for black plastic surgeons?

The race of the plastic surgeon should not be a factor, as it is the same kind of surgery that he performs as what a white or surgeon does. However, the race of the patient matters because ethnicity is a factor in bone structure. Applying a "European" surgery to a black bone structure, for example, may result in inconsistent results not harmonious with the rest of the facial features.
