Cosmetic surgery is surgery that aims to restore or enhance the appearance. It aims to re-establish harmony and proportion. It is often surgery that is undertaken in response to the natural process of aging.
Plastic Surgery is a branch of surgery that involves reconstructive surgery and aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery. The reconstructive aspect of Plastic Surgery aims to restore form or function following injuries and cancers and includes operations such as breast reconstruction following mastectomy for breast cancer.
Changing the way you look through cosmetic surgery deserves very careful consideration and a clear understanding of potential risks before you can make an informed choice.
