Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery

Although aesthetic surgeries constitute the majority of plastic surgery; reconstructive surgery, hand surgery, craniofacial surgery, microsurgery and burn treatments are also included in the field of plastic surgery.

Reconstructive surgery includes the repair of all acquired or congenital tissue and organ loss affecting the skin, subcutaneous tissue and bones in the body. For example, vascular masses such as attached fingers (syndactyly), traumatic burns, different incisions and limb ruptures, chronic wounds, and hemangiomas are within this surgical discipline.

Aesthetic/cosmetic surgery on the other hand, covers surgeries and attempts to further beautify the bodily appearance and bring it to perfection. The main purpose here is beauty and aesthetic concerns rather than a medical problem.
