Plastic and reconstructive surgery focuses on repairing and rebuilding abnormal structures of the body caused by birth defects, developmental problems, trauma (accidents), infection, tumors or disease. Cosmetic (or aesthetic) surgery is often elective and restores or reconstructs structures on the body for better function and appearance.
