Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

I have been going to Dr. Cortez for over 10 years now and have never had a bad experience. People always tell me how young I look, but they never can quite connect it to anything but genetic good luck! Dr. Cortez doesn't make you a different person he just makes a better you. He refuses to do anything that isn't in line with your natural looks. And his office staff is the best, too. I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Dr. Cortez is a very caring and conscientious physician. I am so pleased with what he has done for me, and I would highly recommend him to anyone. He has you come in for follow-ups to make sure you're doing okay after a procedure, and his office is very comfortable and welcoming. Friendly and professional staff, too.
