Plastic Surgery Treatment

Plastic and reconstructive surgery are primarily done to alter one’s physical appearance. The word plastic is derived from the term “plastikos” which means “to mold”. These procedures are not only useful aesthetically but can also build one’s life and confidence, especially in traumatic defects or birth disorders.

What are the Risks of Plastic Surgery?

Every surgical procedure carries a risk of complications. Reconstructive and plastic surgery techniques can be intricate and may affect fragile tissues or sensitive structures close to important organs. Even in otherwise healthy body parts, cosmetic surgeries can cause considerable modifications. The chances of complications depend on several factors. Some potential complications of aesthetic plastic surgery are listed as follows:

Types of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery

There are two main categories into which all plastic surgery techniques fall: invasive and noninvasive. Non-invasive procedures provide treatments without the need for surgery or invasive techniques, whereas invasive procedures entail techniques that require general anaesthesia and invasive operations. Prior to deciding on your preferred course of therapy, it is imperative that you comprehend the distinctions between these methods.

Invasive Plastic Surgery Non-Invasive Plastic Surgery
Entails using surgical techniques to cut through and work with human tissue or structures. Noninvasive techniques target particular parts of the skin without causing cuts or alterations to surrounding tissue, either outwardly or beneath the skin's surface.
Invasive surgical procedures usually need longer recuperation periods, which can range from weeks to months, depending on how intricate the treatment is. Noninvasive procedures frequently involve little to no recovery period, enabling patients to return to their daily activities nearly right away.
Risks related to surgery, such as bleeding, infections, scars, or anaesthesia-related side effects, are always present with invasive treatments. Risks are minimal, but some procedures may accompany some risk, such as the possibility of transient swelling, bruises, or drug allergies
Often permanent or long-lasting results Results are temporary and may require repeated treatments to maintain desired outcomes.
Examples include: facelifts, breast augmentation/reduction, liposuction, rhinoplasty (nose job), tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), etc. Examples include: Botox injections, dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser hair removal, non-surgical fat reduction, etc.

Removal of Birth Defect

One of the biggest uses of plastic and reconstructive surgery is the ability to change physical defects that might be causing an inner sense of incompleteness. Birth defects or conditions that are present since birth are also corrected and treated by our board-certified surgeons so that they can improve the overall quality and appearance of one’s life.

Required Tests for
Aesthetic Surgery

As with any surgery, some preliminary tests need to be done prior to the surgery. This varies from patient to patient, but some of the standard tests include the following:

While these tests may seem cumbersome for patients, it is important to establish baseline values, make sure there are no other underlying health conditions, and also check for any infectious diseases, blood count, bleeding, and clotting time for the patient’s safety.
