Reconstructive Plastic Surgery


A reconstructive surgery technique refers to surgeries that contribute to making physical and appearance changes in an individual. Body part implants, plastic surgeries, or any surgery that brings about changes in an individual's appearance can be categorized under this type of surgery. There are generally two types of plastic surgeries and one of them is specifically named reconstructive plastic surgery. Keep reading this article to know more about this.

What is Reconstructive Plastic Surgery

It is not very uncommon to be born with some kind of physical deformity, usually known as birth defects. Also, it is often seen that many people lose their natural physical appearance or get deformities due to injuries, accidents, or aging. The correction of these kinds of defects through plastic surgery is known as reconstructive plastic surgery.

Similarities between Cosmetic Plastic Surgery and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery

Though different in name and different in some aspects, the basic aim of both types of plastic surgeries is one and the same. Reconstructive plastic surgery that is done by individuals just to boost their self-esteem or trying to make themselves more beautiful by societal standards is classified as cosmetic surgery. But ultimately, both of these plastic surgeries aim to change physical appearance. According to the patients' situation, this classification is made.

Is reconstructive surgery the same as plastic surgery?

One type of plastic surgery is reconstructive surgery. The plastic surgery that is performed due to any medical conditions such as deformities caused by birth, or accidents and injuries falls under reconstructive surgery. Plastic surgeries that are done for beauty, cosmetic, or aesthetic purposes do not fall under reconstructive surgery.

Does plastic surgery hurt?

Due to improved medical technology and the application of anesthesia, the pains associated with surgeries have been reduced. Even then, every surgery will cause some amount of pain or discomfort.
