Plastic surgery is a specialized field of medicine that aims to repair or improve various physical deformities affecting different parts of the body such as the skin, musculoskeletal system, cranial and craniofacial structures, hand, limbs, breast, trunk, and external genitalia. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, on the other hand, is focused on procedures that are aimed at improving the appearance of the face and body. Some examples of these procedures include abdominoplasty surgery, breast augmentation and reduction, blepharoplasty, nose reshaping, facelift, and liposuction.

Reconstructive surgery is a medical specialty that aims to correct physical defects or abnormalities caused by various factors such as congenital anomalies, injuries, illnesses, or aging. The primary purpose of reconstructive plastic surgery is to restore the functionality of the affected body part, while at the same time, improving its appearance. In contrast, reconstructive plastic surgery aims to achieve a more natural look by addressing the physical effects of aging or correcting defects caused by other factors. The number of reconstructive surgeries performed each year worldwide is estimated to be approximately one million.
