A unique area of medicine called cosmetic surgery makes use of both surgical and pharmaceutical techniques to enhance appearance. Cosmetic surgery can be performed on any area of the body, including the head, neck, and face. Because the regions treated lack aesthetic appeal but still perform as intended, cosmetic surgery is optional.
Cosmetic surgery is an
optional or elective procedure carried out on healthy body parts with the
express purpose of improving one's appearance and/or removing signs of ageing.
