    Not really. They mean the same thing. Plastic surgery is a cosmetic procedure.

    I generally think it's best for one's own mental health to try as much as you can to work with what you got. But, that being said, anyone who gets all bent out of shape about someone getting cosmetic surgery should get tf over it.

    Plastic surgery doesn't always mean that you're changing something for cosmetic purposes. That's the difference. For instance, Pinky's friend who had a crooked nose and couldn't breathe because of it. The key word here is "cosmetic".

    Cosmetic surgery is plastic surgery. Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty that cosmetic surgery falls under.

    A person should be free to do as they please as long as it doesn't negatively affect someone else. If it is a quality of life or reconstructive issue, I believe that it should be covered by insurance to take some of the burden off the individual. On the other hand, even though they're free to do so, I can't understand surgery for the sake of surgery. Especially when it ends up making the person ugly, just check out one of the many links on sites like Facebook depicting famous people with bad surgery. What was Joan Rivers famous line, " Am I smiling? I can't tell anymore.".
