Plastic surgery refers to any surgery that reshapes or repairs body structures.
Intended to improve movement or flexibility and minimize disfigurement, reconstructive surgery is a type of plastic surgery that repairs deformities resulting from accidents, disease or birth defects.
Cosmetic (aesthetic) surgery is a type of plastic surgery used to reshape facial or body features for improved appearance. Most cosmetic surgery at Portsmouth Regional Hospital can be performed on an outpatient, same-day basis.
