Plastic surgery is defined as surgery of the skin and soft tissues, non-visceral. But what is the difference with cosmetic surgery ?
In fact, plastic surgery encompasses cosmetic surgery and restorative surgery. Aesthetic surgery brings a transformation from “normal” to “beautiful” while repair surgery repairs a defect (congenital malformation, bite, breast reconstruction following a mastectomy etc.)
The plastic surgeon
The plastic surgeon is a surgeon who is therefore qualified in both cosmetic surgery and repair surgery.
To choose your surgeon and be sure of his skills in Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, you can contact the National Council of Physicians or the Council of the Order of your region. A good one is necessary.
Be very careful, if you have surgery, to be aware of the risks associated with the procedure .
This type of surgery therefore includes a wide range of skills and operates in many operations with two different objectives.
