Cosmetic Surgeons, often referred to as plastic surgeons, serve to alter, restore or correct body forms. While plastic surgery is in fact a type of cosmetic surgery, the field encompasses many different fields including reconstructive, craniofacial, hand, and micro surgery. Beauty surgeons are also often brought in to consult and correct damage caused by burns.
Cosmetic procedures have been dated all the way back to the Old Kingdom, around 3000 to 2500 BC. Most commonly throughout history it was practiced to repair damage to noses, what is now known as rhinoplasty. Today, reconstructive surgery is widely practiced and used for many different things. Sometimes it is, in fact, to alter ones appearance or regain lost youth, and sometimes it is used as an actual medical treatment. Most commonly, reconstructive surgery is used in tumor removal, scar repair, and breast reduction or reconstruction.
