Do you think surgery to fix or remove birth defects ( that don't affect health) is the same as cosmetic surgery done to ehance appearance. One is done to create a normal apperance while the other is done to ehance apperance.
Which does this fall under?

I don't view it as the same at all.0
It's cosmetic surgery still but i see it as different from breast jobs etc. I think there's cosmetic surgery to remove stuff (birthmarks, scars, abnormal growths) and then there's the vain kind of cosmetic surgery.0
Yes it is.0
it is a type of cosmetic surgery. anything done to change appearance is referred to as cosmetic. don't listen to what other people think tho. if anyone wants to change their appearance they should be allowed to with no criticism. it's your body. do what you want with it.0
Insurance wise, it is probably considered cosmetic surgery if it doesn't affect health. It's unfortunate that it is on par with elective plastic surgery that is often used to just enhance appearance, but its a broad category of surgery.0
normal apperance i mean if its defect like if i was born with a 6th finger ill get that removed asap or like a huge birth mark on my face ill get that fixed too0
It's just reconstruction plastic surgery0
They are slightly different but both still cosmetic unless for a medical reason (like fixing septum to help you breathe or something). Also have to think about people who maybe become injured in their life, like badly burned - it's not a birth defect but it is also not just done to enhance looks, more to return them to their previous appearance0
