Plastic surgery

medical specialty concerned with the altering or restoration of form and function

Plastic surgery is a surgery that is done to change the way a person's body looks or works.[1] Some plastic surgeries can change both. Work can be done on someone's bones, cartilage, muscles, fat, and skin.[2]

The two most common forms of plastic surgery are reconstruction (fixing body parts that have been damaged) and cosmetic (changing size shape or color of body parts to make them look better). An example of reconstructive plastic surgery[3] is fixing a part of the body that has been burned. An example of cosmetic plastic surgery is a surgery called a "face-lift": pulling the skin of the face tight so that the client looks younger.
