Aesthetic surgery is a sub-branch of plastic surgery. In this scope, aesthetic concerns rather than medical problems are at the forefront. The term “Aesthetics” is derived from the ancient Greek “aisthesis” or “aisthanesthai” It has certain meaning such as sense, sensations, emotion and perception. Which can be inferred from these words is that the information provided by aesthetics and sensibility is scientific.
It is a sub-branch within the scope of plastic surgery. Aesthetic (or cosmetic) surgery involves operations and interventions intended for making the body image more beautiful and perfect. Of course, there are aesthetic concerns rather than medical problems in such cases.
In addition to specialization training, all plastic surgeons also receive training for plastic surgery; therefore, they are the only surgeons authorized to perform these operations.
