Modern plastic surgery has roots in reconstructive repairs that with time included more and more improvements to the appearance. Over a hundred years ago, when there was no formal training to become a plastic surgeon, doctors specialising in other areas, including otolaryngology and orthopaedics, started performing and perfecting procedures to improve facial or body features.
Nowadays, plastic surgery is an independent and a very well-established speciality. Plastic surgeons can perform dozens of procedures that are relatively safe and include both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. A surgery is considered to be reconstructive when medical conditions or traumas require reconstruction of body parts to regain function or even survive. These include hereditary abnormalities such as a carpal tunnel syndrome (nerve compression in the wrist) or injuries like burns or scars. Cosmetic surgery, on the other hand, is performed when no medical conditions are present but rather the patient’s visual appearance or body shape is to be improved. This could be exemplified by abdominoplasty or removal of fat and skin after pregnancy.
Who is a suitable candidate for a plastic surgery?
Although the surgeon will take all measures to perform any surgeries as safely as possible, it is also important to consider whether the patient is a suitable candidate both physically and mentally to undergo a specific procedure. Low-risk patients should be in good general health, should not be excessively consuming alcohol or smoking, they should not have any medical conditions, such as diabetes, blood clotting disorders, or obesity. If the patient, however, does possess any risk factors, the surgeon will adjust the procedure to the needs of the patient or discuss other available options.
Why do people decide to undergo plastic surgery?
The importance of reconstructive surgery cannot be diminished as it is a way to substantially improve the patient’s life or even save it. On the other hand, cosmetic surgery is a the patient’s choice; it plays an important role in improving patients’ self-confidence, and thus the quality of life.
There are many reasons why people decide to seek surgical treatment. One of them could inevitably be aging. For example, wrinkles, which are the result of worsened skin elasticity, could be easily reduced during a facelift.
Another common reason is pregnancy. There is a number of changes that happen to a woman’s body during the gestation period. With the help of abdominoplasty, liposuction, and breast enhancement mothers have a possibility to regain their pre-pregnancy appearance. Moreover, people often decide to undergo surgery because of inherited imperfections of the body. Proportion and shape of the ears, nose, or other body parts can be improved in a way that would fulfil the patient’s expectations.
Preparation for plastic surgery
Preparation for surgery is an integral part of a successful procedure as well as an easy recovery.
Detailed steps should be discussed with the surgeon, but patients are usually asked to avoid consuming bigger amounts alcohol and stop smoking roughly a month before and after the surgery. That is because nicotine and alcohol have a significant effect on wound healing and cardiovascular health.
Daily exercise and a well-balanced diet are also important in order to improve metabolism and thus wound healing.
Just before surgery, a patient will also have to undergo a health assessment, including blood tests, electrocardiogram (ECG) or others. Mental preparation and realistic expectations are also important.
Ethics of plastic surgery
The demand for aesthetic surgery is getting increasingly higher each year, indicating that people are more than ever aware of their physical appearance. Reconstructive surgery is less of a dilemma because it usually is a necessity and can highly benefit patients who suffer from disfiguring hereditary abnormalities. Aesthetic surgery, on the other hand, is performed due to a patient’s wish, and thus requires more attention regarding certain aspects, such as reasons for undergoing surgery, mental health of the patient and possible risks.
After evaluating a patient’s health, expectations and other possible non-surgical options, the surgeon has to make a decision whether to perform surgery or not in the patient’s best interests. The patient and the specialist should always reach a consensus regarding the need of the procedure. However, it is important to note that surgeon can refuse to perform plastic surgery and the patient should trust the recommendations aimed at helping in the best way possible.
Common myths about cosmetic surgery
Even if there are considerably more women undergoing plastic surgeries, the number of treated men is getting higher each year. For example, the total number of surgical procedures for men was almost 30% higher in 2017 as compared to that in 2000. Cosmetic surgery is of high importance because it is meant to improve physical appearance regardless of one’s gender.
