The term plastic surgery comes from the Greek word "plastikos", which means to mold or to give form. Plastic surgical procedures fall into two major subdivisions: Reconstructive and Cosmetic surgery.
Reconstructive surgery might be defined as a surgical procedure performed on abnormal parts in an attempt to restore a more normal appearance and to improve function. The primary consideration here is the fact that the procedure is carried out on abnormal parts or tissues.
Aesthetic surgery, popularly known as cosmetic surgery, seeks to improve an individual's appearance. While the operations may not be necessary for physical health or safety, they may benefit the patient emotionally and psychologically as well as aesthetically.
Plastic surgery can stimulate changes in people's lives. Your looks are very important because they affect how you feel about yourself and how others feel about you.
Cosmetic surgery is a powerful psychological aid to being that "New You", to start fresh. It's never too late.
Why do you want cosmetic surgery?There is a difference between using cosmetic surgery as a crutch, having unreasonable expectations, and using it to help you through a transition in your life. Most people have cosmetic surgery when their lives are changing for better or worse: at times of marriage, divorce, birth, etc.. Such changes shake your confidence because they force you to see yourself in a new way.
When people use cosmetic surgery for the wrong reasons, the surgery may not help!
