Plastic surgeons specialise in correcting disfigurements of the face and body caused by congenital anomalies, accidents, burns, and diseases. Plastic surgery is reconstructive to restore normal function to previously damaged body areas. If you have access to a top-tier surgeon, you can safely opt for plastic surgery.

Because of the breadth of its scope, plastic surgery employs a wide variety of procedures and techniques to address a wide variety of medical issues. Plastic surgeons regularly perform a variety of cosmetic procedures, including rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), blepharoplasty (eyelid reshaping), mammoplasty (breast augmentation or reduction), and liposuction.
Surgery for fat removal from localised areas of the body (abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, and neck) is known as liposuction, also called lipoplasty or body contouring. Surgery to increase breast size is known as breast augmentation or augmentation mammoplasty. Breast augmentation entails inserting artificial breasts under the breast tissue or chest muscles.
Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, involves the removal of excess skin, breast tissue, and fat. Breast reduction surgery can help women who are bothered by their breast size and self-conscious about their appearance. Gynaecomastia is a condition that affects both men and boys of all ages. Gynecomastia is caused by the abnormal development of breast tissue, not by increased body fat. This means their breasts will swell and look unnaturally large.
In flap surgeries, healthy, living tissue is moved from one part of the body to another, usually to restore function to an area that has experienced a loss of skin, fat, muscle movement, or skeletal support. Burns often result in permanent scarring and contractures. Contractures result from the thickening and contracting of a burn scar, which limits the range of motion. We can keep scarring and contractures to a minimum by taking advantage of several approaches. In autologous fat transfer surgery, fat is taken from one area of the body and moved to another. The buttocks and breasts are the most common sites for this.
Plastic surgery primarily falls under two broad categories:
There is always some degree of danger with surgery. Your personal health history, the extent of the operation, and the dosage and type of anaesthesia all play a role in the degree of danger involved. Before deciding if cosmetic surgery is right for you, your surgeon will review your potential complications.
For the well-being of our patients, we only perform plastic surgery in accredited facilities that have been thoroughly vetted and found to meet the highest standards of safety. Our surgeons are all highly trained and hold relevant credentials as required by law.
There are three primary considerations when establishing the cost of cosmetic surgery. First, a portion of the cost will go toward paying your chosen plastic surgeon. And then there's the price tag associated with renting out the space where the magic happens. The price of the anaesthetic is factored in lastly. Several other variables, such as whether or not the procedure is medically necessary and whether or not insurance will cover it, can affect the final price tag.
Depending on your medical background, lifestyle, and desired outcome, you may or may not be a candidate for plastic surgery. Some people aren't good candidates for cosmetic surgery. On the other hand, while some treatments are relatively harmless, others are much more invasive and may not be suitable for everyone. Your surgeon will talk to you at length about these considerations to determine the best course of action.
Recuperation time after cosmetic surgery varies by the extent of the procedure and the patient's overall health. After a short period of rest (maybe a few days to a week) following a minor procedure, you can resume your routine. It may take weeks or months of physical therapy to fully recover from a more extensive process.
Post-operative pain is a possible side effect of any recovery process. Your surgeon will review the post-operative recovery schedule with you as part of your individualised treatment plan. We will determine the best post-operative pain and recovery strategies with your surgeon.
Depending on the procedure, the effects of plastic surgery can last for a long time (years) or for just a short time (months). Making the right changes to one's way of life can sometimes lead to more permanent effects. However, there is currently no surgical procedure that can stop the ageing process forever. You should discuss the benefits of your operation and how long they should last in detail with your surgeon.
