A plastic surgeon provides surgery in two distinct categories


Cosmetic procedures include surgical and nonsurgical procedures that reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve appearance
and self esteem.


Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body, resulting from congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. It is generally performed to improve function but may also be done to restore a normal appearance. www.plasticsurgery.org
