Plastic surgery field has covered a long distance since its advent in 2000 BC. Simple techniques and equipments have taken a shape of sophistication and advancement. The western world, though not an inventor of plastic surgery, took full advantage by replacing native methods through development of more modified versions of equipments.

In layman terms, plastic surgery is a form of surgical procedure involved in repairing or reconstructing a body part. A lot of people suffer from trait deformities out of which some are natural and some happen due to accidents or diseases. Plastic surgery is mainly classified into varies major categories depending upon the complexity of correction or restoration of a body part involved.

Skin grafting or transfer of skin tissue is one of the major categories of plastic surgery. Other than this, further classifications are done as reconstructive and cosmetic surgeries. Correction of functional impairments such as burns, trauma, developmental and congenital abnormalities, infections, bone fractures especially for face, cancers, and tumors majorly form a part of reconstructive surgeries.

A lot of people choose cosmetic surgeries for enhancing their body parts beyond the average level.
