Plastic Surgery: Boost Your Confidence

Plastic surgery is a medical skill that deals with the restoration, rehabilitation, or modification of the human body.

Surgeons try to retrieve and enhance the patient’s physical appearance and functional capacity.

The process primarily focuses on fixing damaged skin; improving one’s appearance is a secondary pursuit.
