Types of Plastic Surgery

 Types of Plastic/Cosmetic Surgery

Plastic surgery is divided into basically two different types: cosmetic and reconstructive.Reconstructive plastic surgery is used to correct abnormal structures of the body. These abnormalities are usually caused developmentally, or through tumors or diseases. Reconstructive plastic surgery is typically performed to improve functions, however it is sometimes performed where a normal appearance is desired.

Reconstructive surgery
can vastly improve a patient's bodily functioning and self-esteem for simple or complex problems. Reconstructive procedures help correct congenital abnormalities such as cleft-lip and palate deformities, breast abnormalities, and webbed fingers. Acquired deformities like burns, lacerations, and tumors may also be corrected by reconstructive plastic surgery.

Cosmetic surgery
is focused on the aesthetic concerns of the patient and is considered elective surgery.
Cosmetic surgery may be considered elective, but can do much to lift one's self esteem and confidence. Many cosmetic surgery patients have suffered with body image problems, endured significant teasing throughout their lives or tried many other alternatives to cope with a physical feature that they found unattractive or embarrassing.

Aesthetic plastic surgery involves techniques intended for the "enhancement" of appearance through surgical and medical techniques, and is specifically concerned with maintaining normal appearance, restoring it, or enhancing it beyond the average level toward some aesthetic ideal.

It can help diminish the signs of aging, damage from the sun, and refine features to give balance and pleasing proportion to the face and body. 

Plastic surgery can enhance a patient's appearance, and therefore, feelings of confidence. Many people who have cosmetic surgery feel that their overall life quality is improved following surgery.
