Plastic surgery:- Plastic surgery is a surgical procedure that involves restoring, reconstructing, or altering the human body. There are 2 broad categories for the surgery – Reconstructive Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery.
Reconstructive Surgery – Reconstructive surgery is performed to restore function and normal appearance, and correct deformities created by birth defects, trauma or medical conditions including cancer. Examples include cleft lip and palate repair, breast reconstruction following a lumpectomy or mastectomy for breast cancer, and reconstructive surgery after burn injuries.
Cosmetic Surgery- Cosmetic surgery is performed to enhance overall cosmetic appearance by reshaping and adjusting normal anatomy to make it visually more appealing. Unlike reconstructive surgery, cosmetic surgery is not considered medically necessary. Breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and facelift are popular
In reality, there is often significant overlap between reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery since they share many of the same underlying surgical principles. No matter the type of plastic surgery that is being performed, the end goal should always include maximizing the cosmetic result as much as possible. Regardless of the plastic surgery procedure being planned, it is very important for patients to discuss the anticipated cosmetic result with their surgeon ahead of time to ensure appropriate expectations are met.
