Introduction

The field of plastic surgery includes surgeries performed to restore, reconstruct or alter the human body. These surgeries are categorised into two types:

  • Reconstructive surgery; and
  • Cosmetic or aesthetic surgery.

Reconstructive surgery includes craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery and treatment of burns. It aims to reconstruct and improve a part of the body.

In contrast, cosmetic surgery aims to improve the aesthetics of the body.
