Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery encompasses operations to eliminate deformities and aesthetic dissatisfaction with any body part. This branch of medicine is considered one of the most popular in Russia and abroad, and its popularity will be growing even more since surgeries become less invasive and more affordable. Clinics in the countries with top-level health care (Israel, Germany, Austria, and Turkey) use innovative methods and techniques that enable them to achieve amazing results.

Plastic surgery permits a person to get a nicer appearance and regain psychological comfort. Well-done plastic surgery can slow down aging and renew youth. Up-to-date approaches in surgical treatment, modern reconstructive operations, and materials have given impetus to the development of plastic surgery in foreign countries. Israel, Germany, and some other countries offer many opportunities for the rehabilitation of patients who have experienced burns and other serious injuries, cancer treatment, and complex traumatizing surgeries.

Advantages of having plastic surgery abroad:

  • a modern approach to the operation, adequate anesthesia;
  • possibility of having several operations at once (for example, abdominoplasty and liposuction, blepharoplasty and facelift);
  • competent postoperative management of the patient, including effective pain relief;
  • comprehensive care;
  • individual approach to each patient;

The Most Popular Procedures and Their Organization

All work of plastic surgeons can be divided into two categories: reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. Reconstructive surgery is performed to eliminate marked defects and abnormal deformities that a person has since birth or acquired due to illness, injury, or any other accident. Such surgery is extremely beneficial since it returns psychological comfort and high quality of life to the patient.

The main purpose of cosmetic surgery is to improve appearance. Such operations are not designed to eliminate serious defects and congenital anomalies: they help people get a dream appearance. Surgeons modify facial features and remove wrinkles and excess fat; in other words, they do everything for a person to feel beautiful and have no more emotional distress.

Mammoplasty, surgery to modify the shape of the breast, is the most popular. Mammoplasty can increase or reduce the size of the breast or lift it, change the appearance of areoles, etc. Such surgery is salvation for women who lost the breast because of cancer. Mammoplasty can also be used in men, for example, those who have gynecomastia.

Blepharoplasty and rhinoplasty are the second most popular surgeries. Blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery. Eyelids feature thin skin, which often betrays a person’s age, causing an inferiority complex and dissatisfaction with the reflection in the mirror. Blepharoplasty can change the shape of the eyes, remove bags under the eyes, and modify the crease. Blepharoplasty is one of the options for ptosis surgery (when the upper eyelid droops over the eye and blocks normal vision).

Rhinoplasty can have both reconstructive and cosmetic functions. This operation can help:

  • remove humps;
  • straighten the nose;
  • reduce/enlarge the nostrils and make them look symmetrical;
  • restore the nose after injury or complicated surgery;
  • straighten the septum (septoplasty).

Facial Botox injections and circular facelifts are procedures at the interfaces between plastic surgery and cosmetology. They are popular among women aged 35 and older, who start noticing deep wrinkles, changed facial contours, and flabby skin.

Liposuction is another widespread type of surgery performed by plastic surgeons. Its principal task is to remove excess fat. In most cases, liposuction involves the abdomen, hips, and buttocks as the most common problem areas. However, this surgery cannot cure obesity since it does not affect the causes of this disorder. Therefore, to consolidate the effect, a person should change their lifestyle and have a healthier diet and regular exercise.

Rehabilitation

All specialists engaged in plastic surgery are interested in ensuring minimally traumatizing operations. Thus, recovery will take less time, and the person will be able to start their usual life again.

Swelling, bruising, weakness and a temporary decrease in performance are natural in the postoperative period. However, the severity and duration of these symptoms depend on the surgeon’s skill and teamwork of the entire clinic staff. Before bringing yourself to surgery, you should study the information about the doctor and the clinic they work in, read reviews and look at photos of the work performed. Initial consultation and a personal appointment with a surgeon can help you make the final choice.

The rehabilitation program is personalized: it largely depends on the surgery performed, the rate of recovery, the patient’s age, and concomitant diseases. Non-surgical cosmetic procedures are included in rehabilitation. For example, microcurrent and ultrasound therapy help reduce swelling, relieve pain and boost tissue regeneration.
