This is a specialty branch of Surgery dealing with surgical modification (molding) of various body parts. The main types are Reconstructive Surgery and Cosmetic or Aesthetic Surgery. In the former type, defects or deformities present from birth or occurring because of a disease or injury is rectified. In the latter, the size and shape of any body part that is unacceptable or uncomfortable to the person is suitably modified as per the desire of the person and requirements of the situation.
No. Most surgical procedures are done from body’s own tissue. Some times implantable materials made of high ‘medical’ grade bio-acceptable material may be used.
Any body who is well informed about the scope and achievements of this surgical branch is a candidate. He or she should understand the limitations too. Realistic expectations are essential part of every Plastic Surgery procedure. A free and frank discussion with the Plastic Surgeon helps one in deciding whether he or she should undergo the surgery.
It is easy to find one from your family doctor or any local hospital. Bigger hospitals have full fledged Plastic Surgery Departments where more than one Plastic Surgeon is available, often dedicated to either Reconstructive or Aesthetic Surgery.
It is not a fact that all Plastic Surgery procedures are expensive. Some highly specialized time consuming operations may be expensive; but not as much as unaffordable. Most Plastic Surgery is affordable by the middle class. Some centers offer facilities for various Reconstructive Surgery for the poor at a subsidized and discounted price.
