Plastic Surgery Profile Image

Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body.

Overview

Plastic surgery can be divided into two categories. The first is reconstructive surgery which includes craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns. The other is cosmetic or aesthetic surgery.

While reconstructive surgery aims to reconstruct a part of the body or improve its functioning, cosmetic surgery aims at improving the appearance of it.

The most popular surgeries are:

  • Liposuction
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Breast implants
  • Nose jobs
  • Facelifts
