shape. Plastic surgery gives new form to the human body. Cosmetic,
or aesthetic surgery, includes procedures done to enhance
appearance, such as facelift, liposuction, breast augmentation,
tummy-tuck, etc. Reconstructive surgery includes procedures done to
repair birth defects and deformities from accidents or disease, such

been specifically trained to do these procedures.
