What is plastic and cosmetic surgery?
Plastic surgery is a term used for any surgical procedure that is performed to correct, improve or enhance a person’s appearance or to reconstruct any physical deformity that may be present since birth or acquired later. Plastic surgery not only focuses on correcting physical deformities but focuses on functional deformities as well.
Cosmetic surgery, on the other hand, is a type of plastic surgery that specifically aims at improving physical appearance, or achieving the desired look. The goal of the surgery is solely aesthetic and it can be performed on various different parts of the body, by voluntary choice.
Types of plastic surgeries:
