How and What is Plastic Surgery?

Plastic Surgery is a multi-faceted field. 

The name "Plastic" means to mould or shape.

Some surgeries would be reconstructions for genetic defects such as cleft lip.  Some would be reconstructions after traumatic injury.

Limiting or revising scar tissue, especially on the face.

Reconstructions after surgeries such as Mastectomies. 

And...
Of course, what many people hear about, the occasional enhancements, or "improvements".
