Plastic surgery helps to mould any disfigured part of the body. Any physical disfigurement, whether from birth or acquired later, leaves behind a mental and emotional scar on the person. Till a few years back, this curse of ugliness was considered an unavoidable life-long stigma. But in today’s modern era, unattractiveness cannot be accepted as a curse and aged look is no longer considered as a sign of wisdom. Plastic surgery is a special type of surgery that can involve both a person’s physical appearance and ability to function. Plastic surgeons strive to improve a patient’s appearance and self-image through both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures.
Reconstructive procedures correct defects on the face or body. These include physical birth defects like cleft lips and palates and ear deformities, traumatic injuries like those from dog bites or burns or the aftermath of treatments like rebuilding a woman’s breast after surgery for breast cancer.
Aesthetic surgery, a surgical science to beautify ones appearance (popularly known as Cosmetic Surgery) has developed to a stage where it can now dare to give finishing touches to God’s most beautiful creation-the human body.
