Cosmetic Surgery | Plastic Surgery
Plastic Surgery can be broken down into two major categories: Cosmetic Surgery and Reconstructive Surgery.
Cosmetic Surgery includes surgical and nonsurgical optional procedures that aim to reshape or enhance physical structures of the body in order to improve aesthetic appearance and self-esteem. Our feelings of self-worth and esteem are closely linked to how we perceive ourselves and our body. Cosmetic Surgery has been shown to greatly improve these feelings through the enhancing of the offending body part or area of the body. The process of altering your physical appearance can play a part in positively changing the way that you feel about yourself.

Choosing a Cosmetic Surgeon
It is very important to carefully choose the doctor or surgeon who will perform your cosmetic procedure. They should be qualified as well as recommended and published.
