Do you need a Cosmetic Surgeon or a Plastic Surgeon
Cosmetic surgery is basically split in two specific fields of expertise:
cosmetic surgery or reconstructive plastic surgery.
The goal of cosmetic surgery is to improve the physical appearance of a person whilst reconstructive plastic surgery is done to improve or repair problems by surgical intervention, but whilst reconstructive plastic surgery may also entail an element of enhancing appearance, it is not its intended as the primary purpose. Reconstructive plastic surgery may also be known simply as reconstructive surgery.
In many places worldwide the meaning of the two terms may differ slightly but generally cosmetic surgery is completely separated from plastic surgery. The term cosmetic surgery is generally referred to as non-essential elective surgery that a patient has decides to have as a means of improving their appearance or repairing the effects of ageing, whilst plastic surgery is the surgery essentially referred to as being applied in cases to improve or repair a persons appearance caused by illness or injury.
According to some experts in the field, cosmetic surgery is not for everyone. There are many things which can happen in a patient’s life which potentially may influence their decision to elect for cosmetic surgery. In general surgeons from the Western World will not carry out cosmetic surgery until the patient has undergone some counseling, and has been given time or a cooling off period to consider the consequences of the surgery very carefully before being accepted. The reasoning for the need for time to consider your options is that cosmetic surgery results are generally permanent, so it is essential that each and every patient is fully aware of this fact before being accepted and going through the procedure.
The Five most popular cosmetic surgery procedures which are performed are:
This procedure is usually performed by a cosmetic surgeon and its primary function is to reshape and firm up the abdomen. The aim of a tummy tuck is to remove excess fat and sagging skin from the middle and lower abdomen areas and to tighten the outer layers of skin and muscle of the abdominal wall to remove the sagging skin. This procedure is chosen by people who may have lost a lot of weight following an illness, maybe had some weight loss surgery, or may have followed a strict diet and exercise routine or the most common being after childbirth where they may have then been left with sagging skin as a result.
It is essential that the cosmetic surgeon has identified any malnutrition in patients prior to surgery because when malnutrition has been identified prior to undertaking surgery, especially in cases of rapid and significant weight loss, as it has to be corrected beforehand because it can effect the results of the surgery. Once any malnutrition effect has been corrected the risk for problems during and after surgical complications are reduced dramatically and much better rejuvenation of wounds and scar tissue occurs thereafter.
In this procedure is usually performed by a Plastic Surgeon, the aim of the surgery is to reshapes the nose of the patient. This is performed by an otolaryngologist plastic surgeon (surgeon for the head, neck the ear/nose) or a maxillofacial surgeon. This procedure aims to improve nose appearance and also its function. The patient may have problems with breathing, had an accident in the past which needs repairing, such as a rugby player or boxer may have sustained some nose injury, or simply to remove or reduce a bump on the bridge of the nose. Most Plastic surgeons would recommend that patients should at least be 15 years old (boys should be older) before undertaking this type of plastic surgery. There are also instances when rhinoplasty may be performed in conjunction with a facelift.
These is a procedures which is performed generally by a Cosmetic Surgeon and is meant for the removal of wrinkles by means of surgery. The aims is to improve a patient’s facial appearance by making him/her look younger. The cosmetic surgeon will remove any excess facial skin and generally will not need to remove or tighten any underlying tissues as this is normally still intact and tight. In the case of chin lifts the cosmetic surgeon re-drapes the skin on the face and/or neck of the patient by removing access skin and layers of fat which may have accumulated under the chin. There are several methods of performing face lifts, but the most common one is to make a series of incisions around the front part of the ear that extends to the hairline and goes around the base of the ear and behind it. Then he would use a scalpel or surgical scissors to separate the outer layer of skin from the deeper tissue that goes over the neck and cheeks and forehead. The surgeon will then remove any access deeper tissues and tightened that in place with sutures or stitches. Then the outer layer of skin is re-draped and any surplus skin is removed. Finally, the surgeon sutures or staples everything in to place.
This is generally a Cosmetic Surgery procedure and in most cases is an elective procedure where people have for one reason or another decided that they would like to have
- Breast Enlargement
- Breast Reduction
- Brest re-sculpturing
- Breast re-sculpturing in conjunction with Liposuction
Many women choose to have their breasts enlarged or reshaped in order to satisfy the desire for a more desirable bust line. Their breasts may not have developed to a size that meets their expectations, or one breast may be significantly smaller than the other. They may have been happy with your breasts in the past but feel that they look different now. Often, after weight loss, childbirth or as a result of aging, the breasts lose volume and their shape changes. With modern technology it possible to dramatically improve the shape and feel of the Breast to meet with your desire and expectations.
Most people considering to have liposuction have more than likely failed to lose unwanted and fat even after following the strictest diet and exercise regime but just can’t shift stubborn fat or tackle an uneven body shape. Depending on the area and amount of body fat to be removed, liposculpture as it is sometimes called, can help to even out your body proportions or slim a particular area of the body.
Liposuction normally takes between one and three hours depending very much on the amount of fat which is going to be removed and where is it being removed from.. Surgical liposuction is quite often carried out under local anaesthetic for smaller areas, but it for most people it will require a general anaesthetic. The surgeon injects a saline solution into the fatty area to be treated which has the effect of breaking up the fat. The surgeon then inserts a thin metal tube, called a cannula, into the area to be treated. The fat is then sucked out via the cannula using a vacuum pump or a syringe is used for liposculpture which normally would be done in smaller or areas or areas where greater care is needed. The tube may need to be inserted a few more times to remove all the fat. The small incisions made often do not require any stitches so will heal by themselves and be unnoticeable over time.
