Types of Plastic Surgery

 Types of Plastic/Cosmetic Surgery

Plastic surgery is divided into basically two different types: cosmetic and reconstructive.Reconstructive plastic surgery is used to correct abnormal structures of the body. These abnormalities are usually caused developmentally, or through tumors or diseases. Reconstructive plastic surgery is typically performed to improve functions, however it is sometimes performed where a normal appearance is desired.

Reconstructive surgery
can vastly improve a patient's bodily functioning and self-esteem for simple or complex problems. Reconstructive procedures help correct congenital abnormalities such as cleft-lip and palate deformities, breast abnormalities, and webbed fingers. Acquired deformities like burns, lacerations, and tumors may also be corrected by reconstructive plastic surgery.

Cosmetic surgery
is focused on the aesthetic concerns of the patient and is considered elective surgery.
Cosmetic surgery may be considered elective, but can do much to lift one's self esteem and confidence. Many cosmetic surgery patients have suffered with body image problems, endured significant teasing throughout their lives or tried many other alternatives to cope with a physical feature that they found unattractive or embarrassing.

Aesthetic plastic surgery involves techniques intended for the "enhancement" of appearance through surgical and medical techniques, and is specifically concerned with maintaining normal appearance, restoring it, or enhancing it beyond the average level toward some aesthetic ideal.

It can help diminish the signs of aging, damage from the sun, and refine features to give balance and pleasing proportion to the face and body. 

Plastic surgery can enhance a patient's appearance, and therefore, feelings of confidence. Many people who have cosmetic surgery feel that their overall life quality is improved following surgery.

Still we ignore to take care of our most precious assets and tend to discard a little malfunctioning ever felt. But have you ever noticed you behavior with your machines especially your automobiles? You immediately tend to check a mechanic even when a handle doesn’t function in regular fashion. Similarly, your body’s mechanic is your doctor.

    There is also Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS) which is my specialty. FFS can be categorized as Reconstructive and Cosmetic surgery. By reconstructing the muscle and bone of the face, I can make a masculine face look feminine and vice versa. This is typically done for my transgender patients however we do have biological male and female patients that have FFS strictly to look more attractive. By feminizing a face, I can help my patients not only look younger but more attractive overall.

  64. The above statement is seen to be contradictory. The situation is very critical and need an experience complainer to resolve it.

  65. hi i like your articles its very interesting to read .

  66. I think plastic surgery is not as bad as it seems, but then again it really depends why you're going under the knife. There are hundreds of different kinds of cosmetic repairs and again hundreds of different reasons why women (and some men?) want to. If you're getting it to please someone, then I think its bad. But if you're doing it for yourself (eye lift, botox, breast enhancements to feel more confident about yourself) I believe its OKAY

  67. Hi! This is a really informative post. Thanks for posting this. I am planning to try the non-invasive surgery but its hard for me to choose the right one because I am on a budget.my heart is set to go with this, I just have to save more to afford it. I would appreciate it if you can post more about non-invasive surgeries. Thanks. And do you think I should go on with the site? Thanks for your advice.

    Visit with the staff at a reputable facial plastic surgery center and find out which procedures are right for you.

  71. how much i pay for that..i think nits really expensive for us to get this

  72. It is important to know who is a part of the surgeon’s surgical support team, and what their qualifications are. Who will be assisting? Who will be administering and monitoring anesthesia? Is there emergency staff available in case of a problem? If the procedure is being performed at a teaching hospital, will there be any medical students or interns involved in your care?
