Plastic Surgery

What Is Plastic Surgery?

Plastic surgery is the process of restructuring or repairing areas of the body due to accident or injury. It is often used to restore form and function to the body or specific areas of the body. Common areas of focus include surgery to treat burns, congenital deformities, or other issues that can make an individual feel uncomfortable.

Plastic surgery can also involve enhancing or augmenting areas of the body for cosmetic reasons. Common procedures in this area include breast enhancement or reduction and facelifts or other surgery in the facial area including chin, brow, ear, nose, and cheek.

How Is Plastic Surgery Performed?

Good plastic surgery practices often center around the removal of skin or tissue from one area of the body and possibly transplanting it to another. Other types of plastic surgery involve making adjustments to the core structure of the body, such as abdominoplasty (“tummy tuck”), mastoplasty (“breast lift”), and blepharoplasty (“eyelid lift”) in which fat or other kinds of tissue are removed or reshaped to enhance the natural appearance and contour of the body.

Much of the emphasis on plastic surgery techniques deals with the proper placement and size of incisions as well as the handling of wounds. In both types of plastic surgery, understanding both cosmetic and reconstructive surgical principles are crucial to a successful and speedy recovery.

Plastic Surgery Recovery

After the surgery, you may be advised to wear specific kinds of compression garments or take steps to deal with swelling or bruising that may accompany the procedure. Minimal scarring is to be expected, but any scars will fade over time and with proper care. Be sure to follow the specific instructions you are given after your surgery takes place.
