It is true that all of us, or most of us, have things that we want to change about ourselves, but sometimes it can get out of hand and become practically an addiction. And thanks to plastic surgery, it 's possible that we change what we don't like. It aims to reconstruct a part of the body, which for medical or aesthetic reasons, the person wants to change. Therefore, plastic surgery is divided into two facets, the repair and the aesthetic.
The plastic surgery reconstructive aims to correct disfiguring injuries, congenital or acquired defects. Aesthetics, on the other hand, are performed by the patient with the objective of making improvements in appearance and do not actually aim to make any adjustments in terms of health (although this may be possible) but rather to reach the physical aspect that pleases the patient who undergoes the intervention .
In any plastic surgery , it is intended that the affected area maintains its functioning and, as far as possible, that it preserves a natural aspect. But there are also those that aim to deny the natural appearance and do it in a completely different way.
Over the years, the demand for this type of surgery has increased worldwide.
