Did you know that there is a great deal of difference between plastic and cosmetic surgery ? In many cases we blindly use the two terms interchangeably but they mean very different things. Estetica Institute of the Palm Beaches is proud to provide both types of surgeries. Plastic surgery is a term used to describe any alteration of the body. This can be executed for a number of reasons ranging from defects and injuries as a result of cancer or an accident to the desire for a younger appearance. Reconstructive surgery is a term used to describe to reconstruct part of the body or face. It is usually employed in reference to those who have had some sort of disfigurement such as breast cancer.
Cosmetic surgery is a phrase used to describe changes made to the face and body in the pursuit of aesthetic or cosmetic enhancements. Estetica Institte Medical Director, Dr. Greg DeLange, specializes in boht types of surgeries and has offered his services to a number of patients in need of reconstructive plastic surgery procedures.
The reasons for a cosmetic procedure may vary according to the patient but these types of procedures are almost always at the service of self-improvement to look younger and more beautiful.
