What Is Plastic Surgery?
Plastic surgery is the process of restructuring or repairing areas of the body due to accident or injury. It is often used to restore form and function to the body or specific areas of the body. Common areas of focus include surgery to treat burns, congenital deformities, or other issues that can make an individual feel uncomfortable.

How Is Plastic Surgery Performed?
Good plastic surgery practices often center around the removal of skin or tissue from one area of the body and possibly transplanting it to another. Other types of plastic surgery involve making adjustments to the core structure of the body, such as abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”), mastoplasty (“breast lift”), and blepharoplasty (“eyelid lift”) in which fat or other kinds of tissue are removed or reshaped to enhance the natural appearance and contour of the body.
Much of the emphasis on plastic surgery techniques deals with the proper placement and size of incisions as well as the handling of wounds. In both types of plastic surgery, understanding both cosmetic and reconstructive surgical principles are crucial to a successful and speedy recovery.
