Plastic surgery can be broadly classified as reconstructive or cosmetic (aesthetic) surgery, depending primarily on whether it is performed to restore function and alter physical appearance.
Reconstructive plastic surgery is a treatment used to heal dysfunctional body parts. It is primarily used to restore function, although it can also change the appearance of the individual. Some examples of reconstructive surgery are surgeries for cleft palate, burns, nerve injuries, amputations, skin cancers, and tissue transplantation.
Cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, techniques, and principles are often focused on improving the patient’s appearance. Improving aesthetic appeal, symmetry and proportion are key goals. Some examples of aesthetic surgery are Brazilian Ass, Facial Fat Grafting, Brow Lift, Cheek Implants, Neck Lift, Rhinoplasty(nose reshaping), Otoplasty(Ear reshaping), Face Lift, Breast Augmentation/Reduction/Lift, Liposuction.
