Plastic surgery is a specialized medical specialty involving the reconstruction, repair, or enhancement of a person’s body. It can also be separated into two major categories: aesthetic surgery and reconstructive plastic surgery. An aesthetic procedure is used to improve appearance or to enhance aesthetic appearance. Reconstructive plastic surgery deals with the repair of internal or external disfigurements or defects.
Reconstructive plastic surgery was developed in 1948 by Joseph A. Beller in New York City. He was an ophthalmologist. His goal was to develop a method of fixing people’s bodies so that they looked more attractive and were able to feel better. As a result of his vision, this specialty has developed into a highly lucrative business. Today, it is practiced by plastic surgeons all over the world. The United States alone boasts of thousands of practitioners who practice reconstructive surgery.
One type of cosmetic procedure that is done is breast augmentation. In this procedure, implants are placed under the breasts to increase the size and shape of the breasts. This procedure can also correct the shape of a woman’s breasts. Another cosmetic procedure is liposuction. This process involves removing unwanted fat from the body. Sometimes, it is performed to remove excess body fat from areas of the body that have become too large for them. Another procedure that is popular among many women is a tummy tuck.
Reconstructive cosmetic surgery can also be used to treat cancerous conditions. There are different types of surgeries that are used to remove tumors. Breast cancer is one of them. Breast implants or mammoplasty are the most common procedures that are used to remove tumors in the breasts. Another popular procedure is to remove adhesions, or abnormal growths in the abdominal area, such as polyps.
Liposuction involves the removal of excess fat from the abdomen. Liposuction is sometimes used on people who have a serious medical condition such as diabetes. Another popular cosmetic surgery involves removing skin tags. Some other cosmetic surgeries include rhinoplasty (removal of skin folds and creases) and breast augmentations (insertion of synthetic breast tissue). Another type of surgery used in cosmetic plastic surgery is the face lift. where excess skin is removed from the face and neck areas, thus increasing the facial features.
There are risks involved with plastic surgery. Most of these risks are cosmetic in nature. However, there are still some risks and benefits associated with plastic surgery that people can consider when planning for the procedure. For example, there is no guarantee that the procedure will correct a defect.
