    Plastic surgery, cosmetic surgery or aesthetic surgery are the common terms used to refer to the medical specialty involving the correction, modification, restoration and alteration of form and function. Cosmetic surgery is performed to improve the person’s appearance and self-esteem by reshaping the normal structures of the body. For details have a look at:http://www.plasticsurgeryace.com/

    Cosmetic and plastic surgery appear to essentially be the same.  However, there IS a difference between cosmetic and plastic surgeons.  In the US, in order to become a board-certified plastic surgeon, you have to go through an addition 5 years of training and complete and pass additional oral and written exams.  Any MD can call themselves a "cosmetic surgeon" if they perform cosmetic procedures.
