In this article, we intend to know more about plastic surgery and to discuss the advantages and consider the place of plastic surgery in Iran.
The difference between plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery
Most people consider plastic surgery the same as cosmetic surgery, but the two are very different. In cosmetic surgery, the primary focus of physicians is on the appearance of the individual, so that the part of the face or body being subjected to cosmetic surgery does not have a structural problem and people only do this to make themselves more beautiful. For example, Rhinoplasty (nose job), jaw, ear & skin rejuvenation surgery such as Botox and laser, are among the top cosmetic surgeries.
But plastic surgery is performed when a person has a defect in the body and doctors are trying to fix it. For example, burn repair and scar surgeries are types of plastic surgeries.
