Cosmetic Surgery and Procedures

Cosmetic surgery and procedures are treatments that change, restore, or enhance your appearance. They are sometimes called plastic surgery.

There are many reasons for wanting to change or enhance your looks. If you have had burns or other injuries, were born with a birth defect, or want to change parts of your body for other reasons, you may choose to have plastic surgery.
