Plastic surgery is a medical specialty that involves the reconstruction, repair, or replacement of physical defects of form or function involving the skin, musculoskeletal system, craniofacial structures, hand, extremities, breast and trunk, and external genitalia. It can also be used to improve a person's appearance. Plastic surgery is a broad field that includes both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures. Reconstructive procedures are performed to correct physical defects caused by birth defects, trauma, burns, and disease.
Cosmetic procedures are performed to improve a person's appearance. Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is one of the most popular plastic surgeries. It involves removing excess fat and skin from the abdomen and tightening the abdominal muscles. This procedure can help improve the appearance of the abdomen and reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Facelift (rhytidectomy) is another popular plastic surgery procedure.
It involves tightening the facial muscles and removing excess skin to reduce wrinkles and sagging skin. When considering plastic surgery, it is important to find a board-certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing the procedure you are interested in. A board-certified plastic surgeon is a doctor who has completed additional training in plastic surgery and has passed a rigorous examination administered by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Board-certified plastic surgeons have extensive experience performing plastic surgery procedures and can provide you with the best possible results. In addition to tummy tuck and facelift, other popular plastic surgeries include breast augmentation, breast reduction, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), nose reshaping (rhinoplasty), facelift, liposuction, and other cosmetic surgeries. These procedures can help improve a person's appearance by enhancing their features or correcting physical defects caused by injury, accident, trauma, or disease. When considering any type of plastic surgery, it is important to understand the risks involved.
Complications can occur with any type of surgery and may include infection, bleeding, scarring, nerve damage, or other complications. It is important to discuss all potential risks with your board-certified plastic surgeon before undergoing any type of plastic surgery.
