Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is the difference between cosmetic and plastic surgery?
Cosmetic surgery, also known as Aesthetic surgery is a specialty of medicine that focuses on improving one's look through different surgical techniques. It is usually not covered by any insurance. Plastic surgery, also called reconstructive surgery, is the medical specialty that focuses on the reconstruction of face and body deformities caused by congenital defects, trauma, burns, or disease. Reconstructive surgery is usually covered by insurance.
Plastic and Cosmetic surgery are many a time used interchangeably, though they are very different.
