What is the difference between Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery?
Cosmetic surgery is an elective type of surgery that focuses on improving appearance through surgical and medical techniques. Treated areas function properly but lack aesthetic appearance. Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty dedicated to reconstruction of facial and body defects due to birth disorders, trauma, burns, and disease. Plastic surgery focuses on correcting dysfunctional areas of the body and is reconstructive in nature.
