There are many reasons why many are considering plastic and or cosmetic surgery nowadays. A well execute procedure can increase self-confidence, improved physical health, enhanced mental health, provide more opportunities, and even keep extra weight off. However, Cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery are closely related specialties, which are often interchangeable in common speech but they are not the same. Many plastic surgeons like Dr. Ress have chosen to specialize in cosmetic surgery, and this is why the term is so often used interchangeably. And yes, once can say that the objective of both plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery is to improve a patient’s body but in many cases, the training, research, and goals for the patient outcomes is quite different. That is because the focus of a cosmetic procedure by a cosmetic surgeon is almost entirely focused on enhancing a patient’s appearance.
