Plastic Surgery

The term plastic surgery is derived from the Greek word/verb “platho” meaning shape. Thus, the task of the plastic surgeon consists of reshaping the human body. This comprises reconstructive as well as aesthetic surgery.

Reconstructive surgery aims at repairing congenital and defects caused by trauma or illness. This encompasses surgery after severe burns, removing benign or malignant skin tumors, skin coverage after accidents or bedsores, breast reconstruction and corrections of congenital defects such as cleft lip, defect of the outer ear and congenital malformations of the finger.

The ideal candidates for aesthetic surgery are those who want to improve certain aspects of their looks and who have desire to make that change possible. Many people will plastic surgery in order to boost their self-confidence in the working environment, as psychological support in an altered life style or simply in order to help them look as young as they feel.

Whatever the reason, it is always important to have realistic expectations. You will often feel better about yourself by improving a facial feature or a body zone as this may have a positive influence on many aspects of your life. Aesthetic surgery, however, is never a guarantee for happiness or better relationships. It can alter and improve your looks but the rest is up to you!
