Plastic surgery, with its full name plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery, is a specialized surgical branch. “Plasty” is technical terms that can be defined as reshaping something that already exists, and “reconstruction” as reconstructing or completing something that is missing or missing. “Aesthetics”, on the other hand, indicates that this procedure is for visual improvement.
There is no body part or system that plastic surgery focuses on. It deals with all kinds of surgical problems that occur on the entire body surface. In this case, we can say that there is a very wide area of interest. It can be summarized as all congenital, traumatic or subsequent diseases that disrupt the shape and functions of the body.
remains. Scars remain after all kinds of skin incisions and stitches. However, in aesthetic surgeries, or more precisely, in all plastic surgery surgeries, when choosing the area to be cut, areas where the scar will be scarce and not visible and where it can be hidden are selected. In general, fold areas and places parallel to the skin folds are preferred, so that the scar is negligible.
There is no such thing as an aesthetic stitch scientifically. We can say that all the stitches applied by the plastic surgeon are aesthetic stitches. It is a suture that will have better suture results, carefully applied by using the appropriate technique and material according to the shape, shape and placement of the incision.
The answer to this question should be given by the person himself. Anyone who wants to have plastic surgery can make such a request. However, the changes that can be made with plastic surgery are within a certain limit. If the expectation is between these limits, surgery should be performed.
Non-emergency plastic surgeries should not be performed before body/organ development is completed. For example, while the age limit of 16-17 is required for nose surgery, 6 years of age are appropriate for prominent ears.
People with body dysmorphic diseases/disorders, who have high expectations or who are impossible, will not be satisfied after the surgery, so having plastic surgery can lead to bad results. Even if surgery is to be performed on such patients, they must first undergo a psychiatric examination and be informed.
Aesthetic procedures to be done not for himself, but to make others happy or to improve relations will also cause problems in the future.
After nose surgery, the sensitivity of the nose and surrounding skin to sunlight increases, and spots may occur. For this reason, it is necessary to use sunscreen 30 or 45 factor (SPF) creams for 3 months after the surgery.
Nose drop is one of the most frequently asked questions. A nose tip that has been made properly and correctly rhinoplasty will not fall out. It may occur as a result of cutting the cartilage roof of the nose from the parts that need to be protected by technical error. The drooping of the tip of the nose slowly after years of rhinoplasty is a physiological condition that occurs as a result of thinning of the subcutaneous tissues, reduction of elastic fibers and aging of the skin. Even if rhinoplasty has not been performed, it is a condition that can normally occur with aging.
