Procedures And Techniques Of Plastic Surgery

Procedures and Techniques of Plastic Surgery

In plastic surgery, skin grafting (the transfer of skin tissue) has been a very common procedure. Skin grafts can either be taken from the patient or donors.

Autografts: They are taken from the patient. If a natural tissue is absent or deficient, the alternatives can be either cultured sheets of epithelial cells in vitro or synthetic compounds such as integra that comprises silicone and bovine tendon collagen with glycosaminoglycans.

Allografts: They are collected from a donor of the same species.

Xenografts: They are taken from a donor of a different species.

Normally, good results are expected from plastic surgeons who emphasize the careful planning of incisions.  So that they fall in the line of natural skin lines or folds, a proper choice of wound closure, use of best suture materials, and early removal of any exposed sutures so that the wound remains closed by buried sutures.

Cosmetic surgery for people with psychological issues

A large number of people with psychological issues and suffering from domestic violence are more likely to undergo cosmetic surgery. Researchers believe that there is a risk that patient’s psychological conditions could become worse rather than better following a cosmetic surgery.

A higher percentage of patients who undergo cosmetic surgery have psychological issues such as depression or BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder) as compared to the general public.

It is quite important that patients seeking cosmetic surgery are known to have psychological problems, are offered alternative treatments, the researchers say.

The following issues should be discussed with patients before they undergo cosmetic procedure such as face lifts or nose reconstruction. It is important that at-risk patients are aware that their mental health may be affected for the worse rather than the better.

Doctors must be aware of some issues underlying requesting for cosmetic surgery, who are at a risk of poor outcomes, and they should explore fully with patients the reasons for trying cosmetic procedures, all potential results, and possible alternative solutions.
There was also some evidence of a risk of death, including suicide among patients who underwent breast enhancement surgery.
