Plastic surgery can be broadly classified into reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.
Cosmetic surgery is the more common one of the two; and is done for purely aesthetic reasons – to improve the appearance of their face or body. Popular examples include breast augmentation and liposuction.
Reconstructive surgery, on the other hand, is performed to restore normal appearance and/or function. Common examples include breast reconstruction following a mastectomy, or correction of birth defects.
Our plastic surgery clinic in Singapore is well-equipped to perform both types of surgeries within a private and compassionate setting.
