Reconstructive plastic surgery - type of plastic surgery that is performed on abnormal structures of the body that may be caused by trauma, infection, developmental abnormalities, congenital defects, disease and/or tumors. This type of surgical treatment is usually performed to improve function, but may also be performed to approximate a normal appearance.

Rhinoplasty - the surgical repair of a defect of the nose, including reshaping or resizing the nose. It may be performed to change the size of the nose, change the shape of the nose, narrow the nostrils and/or change the angle between the nose and lips. It can also involve the re-sculpting of the bone and cartilage.

Rhytidectomy (Also called facelift) - surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess facial fat, the tightening of facial muscles and the stretching of facial skin; the objective of this surgical procedure is to create a smoother, firmer appearance. It can be performed on either the face, neck or both.

Retinol - A derivative of Vitamin A commonly found in many skin care creams.

Rosacea - A skin disease of unknown causes that causes a collection of symptoms, including redness and puffiness on several areas of the face, on the cheeks and nose. Rosacea cannot be cured but treatment should be sought since the condition can worsen over time if not treated correctly or promptly.
