People consider cosmetic surgery for many reasons. Some people want to change something about their body that has bothered them for years, while others simply want to look as youthful as they feel. Some common cosmetic surgeries include breast implants, breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks, facelift and rhinoplasty (nose job).
Reconstructive surgery aims to correct physical features that are deformed or abnormal by accepted standards - either as the result of a birth defect, congenital disorder, illness or trauma. Often, reconstructive surgery addresses not only a deformed appearance, but also seeks to correct or improve some deficiency or abnormality in the function of a body part. Some common reconstructive procedures include breast reconstruction and repair of cleft lip/palate.
