Plastic surgery is a branch of surgery that repairs, restores or improves missing, injured or misshapen parts of the body. Plastic surgery encompasses both cosmetic surgery, that aims to improve appearance, and reconstructive surgery, that repairs deformities from accidents, disease or birth defects.
