Enhance vs Repair
The word “plastic” comes from the Greek “plastikos” meaning to mould or shape. However, Plastic Surgery has different approaches. Cosmetic Surgery is known in medical terms as Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. This specialty basically focus only in changing the aesthetics of the body. On the other hand, Reconstructive Plastic Surgery focus on achieving repair to an abnormal change in the body shape. And the best part is that a Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon can treat the affected parts aesthetically and/or functionally.

Reconstructive Surgery Techniques
- Skin Grafts
A skin graft takes a healthy patch of skin from one area of the body (donor site) and uses it to cover the recipient site that is damaged or missing.
- Tissue Expansion
It enables the body to grow extra skin by stretching the surrounding tissue of the area to be repaired.
- Flap Reconstruction
This procedure involves the transfer of a living piece of tissue with the blood vessel that keeps it alive. These flaps carry their own blood supply.
