Specialist for plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery
Plastic surgery is a sub-specialty of surgery that remodels organs or the body's external silhouette for functional or aesthetic-cosmetic reasons.
Cosmetic surgery is, in turn, a sub-specialty of plastic surgery. It includes all procedures that are performed, not because of disease, but merely to improve or rejuvenate the external appearance. The field of plastic surgery covers four sub-specialties:
- Cosmetic surgery
- Reconstructive surgery
- Burns surgery
- Hand surgery
