What`s the difference between cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery?

Why is cosmetic surgery commonly equated with plastic surgery if they are two separate specialties?

Cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery are close related specialties, bur they are not the same.  Both types of surgery deal with improving a patient´s body.

Cosmetic surgery focused on enhancing the patient appearance. The term cosmetic is also called aesthetic surgery- it focuses on the appearance of the patient.  They focused entirely on enhancing a patient appearance. Improving symmetry and proportion like primary goals.

 Doctors from a variety of medical fields practice cosmetic surgery. Many cosmetically treatments include:

  • Facial contouring: nose or cheek implants

  • Facial Rejuvenation: facelifts, eyelifts or neck lifts

  • Skin Rejuvenation: Botox: laser or injection

 Cosmetic surgery have shorter recovery time and less pain, is considerate more temporary easier to reverse and requiring simpler techniques and training.

Plastic Surgery:

The American Board Of Plastic Surgery defines the practice as “The repair, reconstruction, or replacement of physical defects of form or function involving the skin, musculoskeletal system, craniomaxillofacil structure, hand extremities, breast and truck “

Example of plastic surgery:

  • Breast reconstruction

  • Burn repair reconstruction

  • Rhinoplastic

  • Congenital defect repair

  • Scar surgery

  • ETC...

Plastic surgery is the best to use, that´s because “cosmetic” surgery appears to be the viewed more casually.

Surgery is always serious with potential danger, no matter how popular the procedure.

Plastic surgery appears to be the better value in terms of accurately depicting the surgery and the surgeon.

Cosmetic surgery is entirely elective and means to enhance one appearance. Plastic surgery is medically indicated and reconstructive in nature.

The most important thing to remember is that the term`s “plastic surgery” and “cosmetic surgery” are not interchangeable. Confusion about the terms had led to public misconceptions about the two specialties. Cosmetic surgery is the surgery of appearance, it s elective and focuses on the aesthetics of beauty.

Important, discuss any of these recommendations with your doctor and take only the specific and recommended surgery or procedure and instructions he told you is better to you.
