Plastic surgery is a branch of advanced medical technology that deals with various types of reconstructive surgery, microsurgery, hand surgery, and treatment for burns. Cosmetic or aesthetic surgery is the most famous medical procedure in the category of plastic surgery. However, most of the plastic surgeries are not cosmetic. The common procedure of cosmetic and plastic surgery is skin grafting and involves the transfer of skin tissue. The basic techniques and procedures involved with skin grafting are: Autografts, Allografts and Xenografts. There are a lot of procedures and techniques that come under the category of cosmetic surgery. Out of all these techniques nineteen are surgical and the rest are non-surgical. Procedures like Rhinoplasty and Facelift are surgical; however, beautification procedures like Botox and laser hair removal are non-surgical.

The widely undergone cosmetic and plastic surgery or procedures are Abdominoplasty or ‘tummy tuck’, Blepharoplasty or ‘eyelid surgery’, Mammoplasty (that includes Breast augmentations or ‘breast implant’, breast reduction, and Mastopexy or ‘breast lift’), Rhinoplasty or ‘nose job’ and buttock augmentation or ‘butt implant’. Implants are also done on the other body parts like the chin, cheeks, etc. Through the cosmetic treatment or technique of ‘Chemical peel’ one can easily remove the scars left behind by acne, chicken pox, and can also remove wrinkles, age spots, freckles, and photodamage. Two other mostly practised techniques are the face lift (also known as Rhytidectomy as per medical terminology), and ‘brow lift’ or ‘forehead lift’.
