Who is Plastic Surgery?

Plastic surgery is a medical speciality that helps restore, reconstruct, and alter the human body's appearance and function. It covers a wide range of procedures that can be used to improve a person's physical appearance and correct defects caused by congenital disabilities, accidents, or illnesses. Plastic surgery is also used for medical purposes to improve bodily functions such as breathing and vision.

Plastic surgery can be broadly classified into two categories: reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. Reconstructive plastic surgery aims to restore the body's function and form after illness or injury. Cosmetic plastic surgery, on the other hand, is performed to enhance an individual's appearance.

Who is a Plastic Surgeon?

Plastic surgeons are specialised doctors who have received training in plastic surgery. They have undergone at least six years of surgical training, including a residency in plastic surgery. Plastic surgeons use a range of surgical techniques to improve the appearance and function of patients' bodies.

These specialists undergo extensive training and education to gain knowledge and expertise in their field. They have a deep understanding of anatomy and surgical techniques required to perform complex procedures safely.

When Should You Consult a Plastic Surgeon?

If you have a physical defect or deformity that affects your appearance or bodily function, you should consult a plastic surgeon. You should also consider consulting with a plastic surgeon if you want to make some changes to your physical appearance. Some people seek out plastic surgery to feel more confident and improve their self-esteem.

Some common reasons why people consider plastic surgery include:

  • Correcting deformities caused by birth defects or traumatic injuries
  • Restoring form or function after cancer treatment
  • Enhancing body contours with liposuction or tummy tuck
  • Improving facial features with rhinoplasty (nose job), eyelid lift, facelift, or brow lift
  • Enhancing breast size with augmentation or reducing breast size with reduction
  • Restoring hair growth through hair transplantation

What Medical Conditions Do Plastic Surgeons Treat?

Plastic surgeons treat a wide range of medical conditions. These include:

  • Congenital disabilities: Some people are born with physical deformities that require surgery to correct. For example, cleft lips and palates can be corrected with plastic surgery.
  • Burns: Burns can cause disfiguration and scarring that can only be improved through plastic surgery.
  • Trauma: Physical injuries can result in disfiguration and loss of function. Reconstructive surgery can help restore the affected area's appearance and functionality.
  • Skin cancer: Skin cancer may require plastic surgery to remove the cancerous tissue while preserving as much healthy skin as possible.

Some other common medical conditions that plastic surgeons treat include:

  • Hand injuries
  • Congenital hand anomalies
  • Breast cancer
  • Trauma to the face and skull

What Are the Different Types of Procedures Conducted by Plastic Surgeons?

  • Breast Surgery: These procedures are used to enhance or reduce the size of the breasts. Examples include breast augmentation, breast reduction, and breast reconstruction.
  • Body Contouring: These procedures are used to alter the shape of the body. Examples include liposuction, tummy tucks, and body lifts.
  • Reconstructive Surgery: This type of surgery is used to reconstruct parts of the body damaged by injury or disease. Examples include skin grafts, scar revision, and tissue expansion.
  • Cosmetic Surgery: This type of surgery aims to enhance an individual's appearance by improving the shape, size, or contour of various body parts.
  • Hand Surgery: This type of surgery focuses on correcting abnormalities and restoring function in the hands.
  • Microsurgery: This type of surgery involves using microscopes and precision instruments to perform complex procedures.
