Plastic surgery

Plastic surgery is related to the correction or restoration of form and function of the body. Though cosmetic or aesthetic surgery is the best known kind of plastic surgery, most plastic surgery is not cosmetic. Plastic surgery includes many types of reconstructive surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery as well as treatment of burns.
