Vanishing Women of Natural Beauty

I was reading Vincent Akanmode's article " Vanishing Women of Natural Beauty " when I came across this pargraph right at the conclusion:
Physicians in ancient India are reckoned to have used skin grafts for reconstructive works as early as 800 BC, but it was not until the 19th and 20th centuries that plastic surgery began to gain recognition in Europe and America, with Dr. John Peter Mettaeur as America’s first plastic surgeon of note.

Reconstructive is not cosmetic.

One is justifiable, the other just sad.

No but reconstructive surgery is often performed BY plastic surgeons.
