Plastic surgery is a medical procedure with the purpose of altering or restoring the form of the body. Though cosmetic or aesthetic surgery is the most well known kind of plastic surgery, plastic surgery itself is not necessarily considered cosmetic and includes many types of reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns.
Sacred Heart Hospital provides both types of plastic surgery, cosmetic and reconstructive. Cosmetic or aesthetic surgery is an elective procedure in which the goal is to enhance your appearance and/or remove signs of aging. Reconstructive surgery is performed to correct functional impairments caused by burns, traumatic injuries, congenital abnormalities, such as cleft palates or cleft lips, developmental abnormalities, infection and disease and cancer or tumors.
