Cosmetic and restorative surgery

Cosmetic and restorative surgery

Cosmetic and restorative surgery is divided along practical lines into two spheres of activity:

Restorative surgery, which also includes microsurgery, focuses on reconstruction and/or minimising the effects of any destructive event, whether it is an accident, congenital defect or rebuilding after the removal of a foreign body such as a tumour.

Cosmetic surgery, focuses on modifying those parts of the body the patient wishes to change for cosmetic or medico-psychological reasons.
