Plastic surgery is a surgical speciality that reshapes or changes one or more parts of your body touching almost all anatomical regions of the body.
The word "plastic" comes from the Greek word "plastikè" which means " the art of modeling."
Plastic surgery allows you to shape or reshape the human body. The specialty of plastic surgery includes both reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery .
Cosmetic surgery is just one of many applications of plastic surgery.
Cosmetic surgery is elective surgery based on the desires of each person. Cosmetic surgery is desired, either because in an undesired appearance (imperfections, irregulatities) or because of the morphological consequences due to an accident or natural skin changes (aging pregnancy, menopause...).
Reconstructive surgery allows the transition from abnormal to normal and cosmetic surgery the transition from normal to better.
Knowing that cosmetic surgery is not essential to the general health, cosmetic surgery can significantly contribute to the quality of life by improving the silhouette or any other part of the body.
The ideal candidate for cosmetic surgery should primarily be in good health and have realistic expectations of the surgery. Improve your silhouette can increase your sense of well-being, but it is not a guarantee of happiness.
