Plastic surgery is a surgical speciality concerned with the correction or restoration of form and function. Though cosmetic or aesthetic surgery is the best-known kind of plastic surgery, all plastic surgery is not cosmetic.
At Healthway Plastic surgery includes many types of reconstructive surgeries, hand surgeries, microsurgeries and the treatment of burns. Unlike other surgical specialties, plastic surgery is not organised around a specific organ system. Plastic surgery is based more on principles than on the details of specific procedures. This allows the plastic surgeon to solve unusual problems, to operate from the top of the head to the tip of the toe, to apply known procedures to other body parts, and to be innovative. Plastic surgery consists of reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery but the boundary between the two, like the boundary of plastic surgery itself, is difficult to draw.
