All About Plastic Surgery

“For me plastic surgery Is the art & science of not just naturally transforming people to look the best version of themselves but to also make them feel like the best version of themselves.” – Dr Kamlen Pillay.

Plastic Surgery is a special type of surgery that can improve your appearance and ability to function. Have you always thought that because the word “plastic” is included in the name that it means you get filled with fake material? I am here to tell you this is a big misconception and that this is not true. The word comes from the ancient Greek word “plastikos”, which means to mold or give form and where the name for the material “plastic” is derived from.

 

TYPES OF PLASTIC SURGERY

 

 

Plastic Surgery can be divided into two categories namely, reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.

 

Reconstructive surgery are procedures that improves defects on the face and body. Here are a few examples:

 

  • Cleft lip and palates

  • Ear deformities

  • Injuries from dog bites or burns

 

Cosmetic also called aesthetic procedures modify a part of the body that a person is not satisfied with. Some of the procedures include:

 

  • Making breasts smaller (Reduction Mammoplasty) or bigger (Augmentation Mammoplasty)

  • Reshaping the nose (Rhinoplasty)

  • Removing fat from the body (Liposuction)

  • Using special technology to remove moles and veins

 

The procedures I have mentioned above are just a few examples and does not include the full spectrum of procedures that can be done. More on this a little later in our article.

 

WHY GET PLASTIC SURGERY?

 

If you have a physical defect or there is a part of your body you feel uncomfortable with, then Plastic Surgery might be the answer. These defects are most commonly caused by an injury. For example, someone has broken their nose in a car accident and it may not heal properly, leaving the nose crooked or with a large bump. To repair a nose deformity is called a Rhinoplasty.

 

There are plenty of reasons why people decide to have cosmetic or plastic surgery. When you don’t like a physical aspect of your body it can have a big impact on your confidence. Getting surgery to change that unwanted physical aspect of your body to something you are proud of can give you the self-confidence you have always aspired to have.

 

4 TOP BENEFITS OF PLASTIC SURGERY

 

    1. Psychological Benefits: By getting cosmetic and plastic surgery you can improve certain areas of your body that you would like to change to improve your appearance and boost your confidence. It will allow you to align your natural appearance with your desired appearance. When you improve your physical experience there is no doubt that your mental and emotional wellbeing will automatically get a boost and it will show. When you have self-confidence, it radiates out from within and that will also give others a boost. Having self-confidence will increase your overall happiness and boost your self-esteem.

 

  • Improved Physical health: Some treatments will allow an individual to have a better physical life after surgery. For example, patients that undergo liposuction will allow a person to be more physically active after surgery.

  • Permanent Results: It can produce results that often last a long time or that are permanent. Results are also dependent on you and how long lasting it can be. It is advisable to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle after the procedure, having an active lifestyle will help the results stay for longer.

  • Overestimated Pain: Often people think that they will have ‘extreme pain’ when having plastic or cosmetic surgery, however, this is a big misconception most people have. There are very few treatments and procedures that are painless, but it is definitely not as painful as it is believed to be.
