What is a Plastic Surgeon?

Plastic surgeons perform surgery that aims to restore, reconstruct or alter the human body. Plastic surgery can be either for reconstructive reasons due to injuries or burns or for cosmetic reasons. Reconstructive surgery aims to improve a function of the body, while cosmetic surgery is strictly for appearance.

Symptoms and Treatments for Plastic Surgery?

Reconstructive surgery corrects impairments such as burns, injuries, facial bone fractures, congenital abnormalities, developmental abnormalities, infection, disease and cancer tumors. It is usually performed to improve function, but can also be done to normalize appearance. Oftentimes, plastic surgeons use microsurgery to transfer tissue for coverage of the defect. Cosmetic surgery is strictly elective and is performed on normal parts of the body with the only purpose being to improve appearance. The most common cosmetic plastic surgeries are abdominoplasty, breast augmentations, buttock lifts, lip enhancements, rhinoplasty, liposuction and collagen fillers.
