Facial Plastic Surgery and Treatment Options
Facial plastic surgery is performed to reshape structures in the head and neck — typically the nose, ears, chin, cheekbones and neckline.

Or they may want to reverse the signs of aging, remove contour irregularities or make the features of the face appear in proportion with one another. Surgeons in dermatology, plastic surgery, and oral and maxillofacial surgery also have training and expertise in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It can be divided into two main categories: reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. Reconstructive surgery includes craniofacial surgery , hand surgery , microsurgery , and the treatment of burns. While reconstructive surgery aims to reconstruct a part of the body or improve its functioning, cosmetic or aesthetic surgery aims at improving the appearance of it. Treatments for the plastic repair of a broken nose are first mentioned in the Edwin Smith Papyrus ,  a transcription of an Ancient Egyptian medical text, one of the oldest known surgical treatises, dated to the Old Kingdom from to BC.
