What is Cosmetic Surgery?

The term ‘cosmetic surgery’ refers to a range of surgical procedures that are carried out to alter and enhance a patient’s physical appearance.

During these procedures, surgeons reshape the normal structures of the body with the aim of improving the way a patient looks and helping them feel better about their appearance. There is also a range of non-surgical cosmetic interventions available that involve no surgery at all.

Our patient information guide section outlines some of the types of cosmetic surgery procedures available to patients.
