Plastic Surgery is a medical specialty concerned with the correction or restoration of form and function. While famous for aesthetic surgery, plastic surgery also includes many types of reconstructive surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns. The word "plastic" derives from the Greek "plastikos" meaning to mold or to shape, thus plastic surgery means "molding or shaping surgery" - its use here has no connection with plastics in the sense of synthetic polymer material. While the majority of cosmetic surgery comes under plastic surgery, most plastic surgery is not cosmetic surgery.
