In brief: Depends....

That would depend upon your reason for the visit.
Each might be better at certain things. No one is great at everything. :).

In brief: Depends

Head and neck surgeons are limited anatomically, to treating issues in the head & neck.
Plastic surgeons treat issues all over the body. So, it depends on your problem. Certain surgeons will have certain subspecialties - like rhinoplasty or cancer treatments. Both fields do excellent work, but approach it from different training & backgrounds.
