What’s In A Name?
Many people use the term “cosmetic” and “plastic” surgery interchangeably. However, there are a few very important differences between these two terms which will determine the type of specialist you meet with. Cosmetic surgery is an elective surgery that is performed specifically to change the patient’s appearance in their face, head, and other parts of the body. Plastic surgery, while it may change the physical appearance of the patient, is meant to correct defects caused by birth disorders, trauma, burns, and more.
Plastic and cosmetic surgeons are required to complete different medical training and accreditation to practice in their chosen field.
