VERIFIED PATIENT REVIEWS
Plastic Surgery vs. Cosmetic Surgery: Is there a difference?
While both cosmetic and plastic surgery deal with alteration to the human body, the ultimate goals may differ, and thus the guiding principles about training, research, and emphasis of procedures may differ.
The procedures, techniques, and principles of cosmetic surgery are entirely focused on Improving aesthetic appeal, symmetry, and proportion to enhance a patient’s appearance.
Cosmetic surgery can be performed on all areas of the head, neck, and body. Because the treated areas function properly, cosmetic surgery is considered an elective procedure and is therefore not medically necessary. This is why many insurance plans do not cover the cost of plastic surgery procedures.
Here are some of the most top-requested cosmetic surgery procedures:
On the other hand, plastic surgery is defined as a surgical specialty dedicated to the reconstruction of facial and body defects due to birth disorders, trauma, burns, and disease. Plastic surgery is reconstructive as it is primarily concerned with restoring function while maximizing form is of secondary concern.
Although many of the surgical principles regarding maximizing the aesthetic appearance of the final result are the same, plastic surgery’s primary objective is to restore the underlying function of the body part, whether it be mobility, bodily function, or protective tissue coverage.
Here are some common examples of reconstructive plastic surgery procedures:
- Breast reconstruction after mastectomy
- Cleft-lip repair
- Hand surgery and finger re-plantations
- Scar revisions
- Scar and skin graft surgery for burns
- Skin flaps for tissue defects.
Is plastic surgery the same as cosmetic surgery?
If you’ve been searching for a plastic surgeon in Chicago or your area, you’ve probably come across the terms “plastic surgery” and “cosmetic surgery.” The terms plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery are used interchangeably and are closely related but not the same. Both cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery deal with the surgical alteration of the human body.
It is essential to do your research and ask the right questions when choosing a surgeon to perform your cosmetic surgery procedure. Your surgeon should have adequate training and experience in the procedure to perform a procedure safely and proficiently. To find the best plastic surgeon in Chicago for a specific cosmetic procedure, you must compare doctors’ overall (residency and post-residency) training, experience, and proven competence concerning that specific cosmetic procedure that you want to get.
Board-certified cosmetic surgeons are residency-trained and certified in a primary surgical specialty and then explicitly fellowship-trained for cosmetic surgery.
When it pertains to cosmetic surgery, the training, experience, and knowledge required to become a board-certified cosmetic surgeon reflect specialization in cosmetic surgical procedures above and beyond what is required in “plastic surgery.”
Each board-certified surgeon by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery has completed a one- or two-year fellowship training dedicated to cosmetic surgery alone. During this fellowship, surgeons receive thorough training in all cosmetic surgery procedures of the face, breast, and body, plus non-surgical cosmetic treatments, performing a minimum of 300 individual cosmetic surgery procedures, as seen in the graph below.
