Both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery are types of plastic surgery.

Cosmetic Plastic Surgery reshapes normal structures of the body to improve the patient's appearance and self-esteem. Cosmetic procedures are not often covered by health insurance because they are elective.

Reconstructive Surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body to improve function and/or approximate a normal appearance. Click here to learn more about these procedures.

Some operations may be reconstructive OR cosmetic, depending on a patient's situation. For example, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) — a procedure normally performed to achieve cosmetic improvement — may be covered if eyelid droop obscures vision.
