The magic wand of modern medicine is here today to ensure that we can do away with flaws, blemishes and imperfections at any time we so desire. For those of us with "less-than-perfect" attributes, the quest to achieve near perfection is an understandable desire as obesity, today, is no longer a sign of prosperity and wrinkles no longer spell wisdom. In a world where "fit" and "fabulous" are the buzzwords, good looks can certainly be a confidence booster and can also lead to better opportunities in one's social and professional life. The procedures, techniques, and principles of cosmetic surgery are entirely focused on enhancing a patient's appearance. Improving aesthetic appeal, symmetry, and proportion are the key goals. Cosmetic surgery can be performed on all areas of the head, neck, and body. Because the treated areas function properly, cosmetic surgery is elective. Doctors from a variety of medical fields practice cosmetic surgery. Plastic surgery is defined as a surgical specialty dedicated to reconstruction of facial and body defects due to birth disorders, trauma, burns, and disease. Plastic surgery is intended to correct dysfunctional areas of the body and is reconstructive in nature. Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body, caused by birth defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma or injury, infection, tumors, or disease. It is generally performed to improve function, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance.
