What is the difference between reconstructive and cosmetic surgery?

According to the Australian Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS), plastic surgery has two branches, cosmetic surgery and reconstructive  plastic surgery. Cosmetic surgery is a subspecialty of the broader field of plastic surgery and one in which many plastic surgeons choose to specialise.

Cosmetic surgery is designed to improve a person’s visual appearance by altering or reshaping a bodily feature whereas plastic surgery encompasses both cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery.

Reconstructive surgery is concerned with improving bodily function and is performed on abnormal structures of the body caused by inherited defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumours or disease.
