Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery has two main parts: reconstructive plastic surgery, which means carrying out an operation to improve the appearance and function to the body following illness or an accident. Whilst aesthetic and cosmetic plastic surgery is changing the appearance of your body through choice.
