Cosmetic or Reconstructive?
At Plastic Surgery Perth, plastic surgery can be divided into two kinds based on their goals – Cosmetic and Reconstructive. Cosmetic surgery’s primary focus is to improve or enhance the physical appearance of a specific body part. Reconstructive surgery, on the other hand, focuses on repairing or bringing back the function of a damaged body part. This adds more weight to the side of reconstructive surgery as being more important or crucial during emergency situations. Cosmetic surgery can be done whether a body part is damaged or not, so it is considered an elective procedure.
Uses of Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery is needed in certain situations where the normal functioning of the body is hindered by damage or abnormality. Such instances include congenital defects or abnormalities (cleft lip/palate, cancer-prone birthmarks, webbed fingers, etc), body parts damaged by cancer (breast, face, legs, etc.) or burns (full-thickness burns that need skin grafting). All of these situations are resolved by plastic surgery to improve a person’s life overall.
Plastic surgery techniques
Plastic Surgery Perth plastic surgeons have rigorous training and countless years of experience in performing reconstructive and cosmetic surgeries. The following are some of the most common techniques that Plastic Surgery Perth surgeons use in plastic surgery procedures:
– Skin grafting (Split-thickness or full-thickness)
– Surgical skin flap technique (by location, the method of transfer, and tissue composition)
– Tissue expansion (growing tissue to aid reconstruction)
– Prosthetic devices (artificial leg, arm, hand, etc.)
Plastic surgery is becoming more and more accepted in the market nowadays not only as the solution to reconstructive concerns but also for cosmetic problems.
