The term “plastic” is from the Greek word “plastikos,” meaning to mold or 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 as cancer. Board-certified plastic surgeons are specialists who have been specifically trained to do these procedures.
