WHAT IS PLASTIC SURGERY?
Plastic surgery is a specialist surgical craft whose aim is to remodel certain body structures in order to improve their function and appearance. The word “plastic” is derived from the Greek word “plastikos” meaning “suitable for moulding”. The plastic surgeon must work to achieve both good aesthetic and functional results. Modern Plastic Surgery encompasses many aspects in Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeries. Some plastic surgeons are principally involved with a specific interest which include reconstruction after trauma, burns and cancer surgery. Whilst others have extensive interest in hand and microsurgery.
Reconstructive plastic surgery is concerned with : Burns and it’s sequelae Post-oncologic reconstructions Post traumatic reconstructions Maxillo-facial and Craneofacial surgery: congenital, trauma, and tumours. Hand Surgery Microsurgery: nerve lesions, reimplantation, & complex reconstructions. Skin and soft tissues tumours. Therefore we collaborate very closely with other specialties such as ENT, Orthopedic, Gynecology, General Surgery.
COSMETIC SURGERY (also termed aesthetic Surgery)
Aesthetic plastic surgery is the branch of plastic surgery which is focused on form and appearance. Its aim is to improve the appearance of various areas of the body that are unpleasant in size or shape due to genetic or acquired causes. Cosmetic surgery has become an increasingly important part of Plastic Surgery as new surgical techniques and sophisticated anesthesia enable surgery to be safely undertaken for the improvement of personal appearance. The goal of Aesthetic Surgery is to correct those defects or alterations which concern the person, causing psychological problems. For example, correction of facial or eyelid wrinkling, nasal remodeling and reduction, breast augmentation or reduction, and reduction of fat accumulation in certain areas of the body. Each year millions of men and women of all ages improve their appearance and enhance the quality of their lives with cosmetic surgery. Modern techniques like laser skin resurfacing and edoscopic techniques allow for smaller incisions and quicker recovery. These are just two of the many exciting advancements in modern surgery that provide more options and choices for patients.
