What Is Plastic Surgery?

 To get familiar with plastic surgery, it may help to understand the origin of the word. While the term “plastic” may bring up the thought “fake”, a more accurate representation of the word would be “to mold or to form”. This is because the word is rooted in the Greek “plastikos”, which holds that meaning.

Reasons For Plastic Surgery

  • Enhancing appearance
  • Improving functionality

There are many reasons why plastic surgery may be performed including:

  • Abnormalities present at birth

Plastic surgery may be either reconstructive or aesthetic. Reconstructive would be necessary in the case of illness, injury, or congenital abnormalities. Aesthetic would be cosmetic procedures done for solely appearance sake.
