Reconstructive surgery including microsurgery and generally emphasizes the re-fixing or masking the negative effects of disease, trauma or surgery. You can include the guise of defects with flaps or movement of tissue from other parts of the body to where the reconstruction has to be done. Breast reconstruction for those who have had a mastectomy, cleft lip and palate surgery are common reconstructive surgeries. Sex reassignment surgery for transgender people is also included in reconstructive surgery.

The cosmetic or aesthetic surgery is usually performed in order to enhance visual appeal and flattering characteristics change little. In exceptional cases, however, there are medical reasons for performing cosmetic surgery. This includes breast reduction you have to do because of orthopedic problems.

Plastic surgery is divided. Plastic surgery training and approval by the American Board of Plastic Surgery includes mastery of other specific surgery. Craniofacial surgery involves treatment of pediatric congenital defects such as cleft lip and palate. Plastic surgeons are fully trained in hand surgery and some students even choose to complete an additional scholarship to hand round later.
