Reconstructive Plastic Surgery

Reconstructive plastic surgery is a distinct area of plastic surgery which differs from cosmetic surgery. While the goal of cosmetic surgery is to enhance or alter the normal appearance, the goal of reconstructive surgery is to reconstruct something abnormal to achieve a more normal appearance. These abnormalities typically occur from a birth defect, a disease your body has fought, an infection, or a tragic incident that you may have endured.  Watch this video about Plastic Surgery after dramatic weight-loss.
