What is Plastic surgery?
Plastic surgery is a branch of surgery. The plastic surgeon makes changes to organs or the external body silhouette for functional or aesthetic-cosmetic reasons.Aesthetic surgery is, in turn, a branch of plastic surgery. This includes all interventions that are not carried out due to illness, but only to improve the external appearance. The field of plastic surgery covers four areas:
- Aesthetic surgery
- Reconstructive surgery
- Burn surgery
- Hand surgery
The term “plastic” describes the surgical possibilities of restoring, reshaping or replacing damaged and defaced body parts. This change in shape, damage or disfigurement of body parts can be congenital or acquired through accidents, tumors and diseases. It is therefore the basic task of plastic surgery to restore or improve body shape or impaired body functions through surgical interventions.
What does a plastic surgeon do?
Plastic surgeons perform surgical procedures to improve a patient’s external appearance. The word plastic comes from the Greek language and literally means “by kneading”. In ancient times, this meant sculpture or the fine arts of a clay model.
Aesthetic or plastic surgery is colloquially also called cosmetic surgery and is always concerned with changes or optimizations of the appearance or the external appearance of a person in all their different facets.
Everyone wants to be beautiful, that is also quite normal. But despite exercise, a healthy diet or specific cosmetic applications, it is of course not possible to change or model all parts of the body in such a way that a person could be permanently satisfied with them.
Of course, specialists in plastic and aesthetic surgery also take care of patients who suffer from a congenital or acquired disease and who can then remedy this with the help of aesthetic surgery.
Typical surgical interventions in the field of plastic surgery would be, for example, breast reduction, breast enlargement, breast lift, liposuction or the repair of gynecomastia, i.e. an unnatural expression of female breast shapes in men.
