However, plastic and reconstructive surgery is performed for repair purposes and is at least as common as aesthetic procedures.
By plastic surgery, all kinds of cavities and deformities on the face and body are tried to be repaired with healthy tissues. It is an important rule to choose the simplest and least harmful methods for repair in these operations.
