You may have parts of your body that you would like to change for different reasons. You may not be happy with the way you look in the mirror or you may have a medical history that causes a part of your body to be changed. Contrary to popular belief, plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery are two different medical areas that require separate expertise. And usually, the best plastic surgery clinic is not the best cosmetic surgery place.
According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons, plastic surgeries are “Reconstructive Procedures are performed to treat structures of the body affected aesthetically or functionally by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. It is generally done to improve function and ability, but may also be performed to achieve a more typical appearance of the affected structure. Reconstructive surgery is generally covered by most health insurance policies, although coverage for specific procedures and levels of coverage may vary greatly.”
On the other hand, “Cosmetic plastic surgery includes surgical and nonsurgical procedures that enhance and reshape structures of the body to improve appearance and confidence. Healthy individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations are appropriate candidates for cosmetic procedures. Plastic surgery is a personal choice and should be done for yourself, not to meet someone else’s expectations or to try to fit an ideal image. Because it is elective, cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by health insurance.”
