Plastic surgery is the blanket term for different surgical procedures, one of which is cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgery is a type of plastic surgery that is used for aesthetic alterations, such as liposuction or breast enhancements. This is also sometimes referred to as aesthetic surgery. Cosmetic surgery aims to improve the self-confidence of a patient by making alterations to their appearance. So, the difference is that cosmetic surgery is a type of plastic surgery. Gary Ross has decades of experience providing both cosmetic and plastic surgery in Manchester, and the rest of the UK.

Gary Ross performs his plastic surgeries in Manchester, consulting and operating at the BMI Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle, in addition to The Christie Clinic located in Didsbury Manchester. Both locations provide round-the-clock care and are recognised as some of the most esteemed medical facilities in the UK. Both facilities are commutable from all UK locations, and Mr Ross has also worked with some overseas patients who received the highest level of care for cosmetic surgeries in Manchester.

Cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery are both types of plastic surgery. Cosmetic surgery refers to procedures that change or improve someone's appearance aesthetically, including facial rejuvenation or body contouring. Often, a combination of different cosmetic surgery procedures can be used to achieve the desired outcome of the patient.

Reconstructive surgery is more focused on procedures that are needed for medical reasons, such as improving functionality or to correct defects caused by birth or developmental abnormalities. Examples would be facial reconstruction, skin reconstruction or breast augmentations following a mastectomy. So, the main difference between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery is that cosmetic surgery is more focused on appearance whereas reconstructive is focused on repairing and restoring function.

We do have plastic surgery before and after examples for the different reconstructive and cosmetic surgery procedures on our case studies page. However, it is important to remember that every patient is different and so is the outcome of the surgery. The most effective way to gain an understanding of the results you can achieve through a procedure is to book a consultation with Gary Ross and enquire regarding plastic surgery in Manchester.

The cost of cosmetic and plastic surgery in Manchester is variable per patient and desired outcome, so a consultation is always necessary if you wish for a transparent fee breakdown.

Plastic surgery, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery can involve a range of different procedures and can also be combined with other treatments.
