Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body.

Overview

Plastic surgery can be divided into two categories. The first is reconstructive surgery which includes craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns. The other is cosmetic or aesthetic surgery.

While reconstructive surgery aims to reconstruct a part of the body or improve its functioning, cosmetic surgery aims at improving the appearance of it.

The most popular surgeries are:

  • Liposuction
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Breast implants
  • Nose jobs
  • Facelifts

Breast implant removal is a simple procedure that can potentially be performed under deep sedation instead of general anaesthesia. The level of complexity depends on if it is a case of symptomatic (leak, capsular contracture etc) removal or asymptomatic (“I just want the im...

There are 3 factors which affects the appearance of the nose: skin, cartilage and bones. You were not very specific in describing the location and appearance of the dent, so I'll discuss a little on all 3: Skin - scars from previous trauma, permanent wrinkle lines due to ...

This is an excellent question, but the answer may take a while and be a bit technical so please bear with me: Firstly, let's start with anatomy. The septum is the major structure that gives our nose its shape and size. It's primary function is as the skeleton for the nose. This e...

There is an extremely small, theoretical risk of permanently losing your sense of smell, although I have not personally encountered such a case before. Indeed, understanding the anatomy and physiology of the sense of smell, it would more likely than not, improve it. That said, y...

Yes and No. The nasal septum is a midline structure in the nose composed of cartilage and bones. It is the main structural support of the nose. Without a good septum, breathing function is compromised. There are some parts of the septum that are visible (top and front parts), ...

One way to approach this question is to weigh the pros vs cons: Pros - Generally, septorhinoplasty, even with a rib harvest, is considered a very safe procedure. - You get to breathe better! - Correct Obstructive Sleep Apnoea: A deviated septum can occasionally cause ...

If you had a previous rhinoplasty, or any nasal surgery or trauma, the crease is most likely due to a broken cartilage/graft/implant. In such cases, the correct solution is to repair it surgically. Non-surgical camouflage using fillers is a possible but tenuous option, as it can ...

It depends. You can certainly do a threadlift, but it may or may not be complicated. There are a few questions that needs to be answered: what is it you are trying to correct with the threadlift that your autologous rhinoplasty did not address (bridge? tip?) what has bee...

The stitches done for alarplasty is usually removed after 1 week.

Firstly, liposuction is a surgical procedure. Although it is performed through small incisions it is an invasive procedure that should be performed by qualified surgeons. Every surgeon needs to tell you about the significant risks that may or may not happen , these include: ...
