What is Plastic Surgery?

Plastic surgery is a term used to describe a number of surgical procedures that are designed to reshape and improve one’s physical appearance, as well as help boost an individual's self-esteem. A healthy attitude and realistic expectations are important, and they will greatly influence and increase the positive outcome of a plastic surgical procedure.

Why Choose Plastic Surgery?

The decision to undergo a plastic surgery procedure to enhance your appearance should not be done in haste or taken lightly. Each person will have their own personal reason for desiring plastic surgery, and each should consider the pros and cons before they make the final decision to undergo an elective plastic surgical procedure. Individuals choose plastic surgery for a number of reasons, some of which include:

  • Improving and restoring a youthful, more attractive appearance.
  • Correcting problems caused by accident or by a birth defect.

What is the Difference Between Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery?

Cosmetic surgery refers to a small group within plastic surgery. Cosmetic surgery is a tool for augmenting and reshaping areas of the body. It’s used to improve a patient's appearance and to also increase their self-image and self-esteem.

Reconstructive surgery refers to another small group within plastic surgery that corrects problems and abnormalities that are caused by an injury, trauma, tumor, infection, disease, congenital defects or developmental defects. Reconstructive surgeries are often used to provide an individual with a normalized appearance, but they are also used to improve and restore function pertaining to any defects or abnormalities.

How Should I Prepare for Plastic Surgery?

You should prepare for plastic surgery by caring for your health in the following ways:

  1. Smoking greatly hinders the body during the after-surgery recovery. So, you should not start smoking, and if you do smoke, you should stop. Nicotine patches, nicotine gum, and vape e-cigarette use should be stopped four weeks before your surgery. Avoid being in closed areas where others are smoking, as well.
  2. Stay in good health, and avoid catching a cold or other illness. Your surgery will need to be postponed if you are sick.
  3. Stay active before the surgery, but avoid strenuous exercise or engaging in a new sport. Take a long walk daily and continue to routinely follow a low impact exercise plan after the surgery is completed.
  4. Enjoy a well-balanced diet, avoid the excessive use of alcohol and avoid overindulging on food. It is not the time to start a weight loss diet before the surgery, simply continue to maintain a well-balanced diet. If you are considering starting a new supplement before the surgery, contact the practice and speak to someone on the staff.
