Types of plastic surgeries:
Reconstructive Plastic Surgery
This type of surgery is done with the aim to successfully restore the image of a damaged or otherwise defective body part and in some cases, involves the restoration of the functionality of these body parts as well. Reconstructive surgery can be an option for those who have defects by birth, burn victims, and irregularities during the development stage of a human body. Infections, tumors and many other issues can also conjure a need for reconstructive plastic surgery. The goal of this type of plastic surgery is to essentially restore the normal appearance and functionality of the human body that has been hindered due to some reason.
Cosmetic Plastic Surgery
This type of surgery is done to change one’s appearance. The goal is often to increase one’s confidence in their own image and also to make them feel more comfortable about themselves and around people. As the name suggests, this is purely cosmetic and usually involves no actual need for the surgery, it is done as per the patients will. It encompasses a variety of different body parts, patients can get complexion changes, nose reshaping, breast augmentation, treatment of leg veins etc.
It is recommended that any and all patients interested in any type of plastic surgeries should do thorough research into the treatments they want to get done as well as the clinics and surgeons they want to get it done from. It is essential that the doctors be certified to do the procedures and have experience. Often times, patients do not know that they are not eligible for certain procedures till they meet their doctor for the first time, this is why it is recommended to get several tests done relating to the area that a patient wants to get the procedure done on, allergies and certain diseases can make it so the patient cannot get plastic surgery done. For the doctor to make an informed decision he or she will always ask for your medical history, as such a patient should always have the most up to date information about his or her own health when they wish to get the procedure done.

Dangers posed by plastic surgery
As with any surgical procedure, there are certain risks and potential side effects of the plastic surgery, for both cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries. The risks are as follows:
- Blood loss.
- Nerve damage.
- Organ damage.
- Thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
- General appearance dissatisfaction.
- Anesthesia complications
These are some of the many different types of effects one can have during or post-surgery, it is recommended that patients follow their doctors prescribed activities and medicines to the letter to avoid developing complications. As compared to big surgeries, the risk of side effects and possible issues a patient may face are far less lethal, but can be quite painful. This is why we must stress on the fact that such surgeries should only be done through seasoned professionals.
