The Difference Between Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery

Plastic surgery is divided into two categories: Aesthetic and Reconstructive plastic surgery. Here is how they differ:


Aesthetic plastic surgery

The goal of cosmetic or aesthetic plastic surgery is to shape parts of the body differently. In most countries, the costs of these procedures are privately paid by the patients. 

All aesthetic surgery methods, techniques and applications are designed to enhance the patient's appearance, for example by adjusting symmetry, balance and proportions. Patients often undertake these procedures with the goal of increasing their confidence and feel better in their own body.


Reconstructive plastic surgery

The aim of reconstructive plastic surgery is to restore the form, function, and the aesthetic appearance of the body, following trauma, cancer or congenital malformations. As in cosmetic plastic surgery, patients consciously opt for surgery. However, as the surgery is associated with health issues, the costs of interventions in many countries are covered by health insurance.

Reconstructing a breast after cancer surgery is one of the most common procedures. Such breast surgeries are an important contribution to the wellbeing of affected women, promoting a better quality of life.

"Elective plastic surgery is a very personal decision. I recommend doing it for the right reasons. As a mother, as a blogger, as a human, I have to say that our bodies are our biggest responsibility. We do not really know how important breast implants can be. We all think that it is just a medical procedure, but it is much more than that. It is your body. It is your choice. Because life is actually your journey."
