Plastic Surgery

Plastic Surgery is an area of medicine that deals with reconstructing or repairing damaged skin and tissue. These highly specialised procedures can be undertaken to repair damage from illness, surgery, birth defects, or as part of desired cosmetic improvement.

Alongside our reconstructive surgery, we also offer a variety of cosmetic surgeries to help patients seeking surgical support for cosmetic reasons. These specialist cosmetic surgeries can often be undertaken to help boost confidence or support a desired physical change.

Plastic surgery repairs and reconstructs missing or damaged tissue and skin. The main aim of plastic surgery is to restore the function and appearance of tissue and skin, so it is as close to normal as possible. Generally, plastic surgery can be broken down into two main categories – reconstructive and cosmetic procedures.

Plastic surgery involves a broad scope of procedures to restore the body's normal appearance and function, while cosmetic surgery focuses exclusively on aesthetic procedures.

Some plastic surgeons perform cosmetic surgery as part of their practice. If so, you may see these other terms: cosmetic plastic surgeon, cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon, facial cosmetic surgeon, and others based on the surgeon's particular expertise.

A cosmetic surgeon makes changes in body shape or rejuvenates areas that have been affected by ageing, whereas a plastic surgeon can choose to limit practice to one of these areas or practice the entire scope of plastic surgery.

Why Do People See Plastic Surgeons?

People see a plastic surgeon to repair injuries and congenital (present at birth) defects affecting their appearance or function. These include congenital physical disabilities like cleft lips and palates and ear deformities. Plastic surgeons use reconstructive and cosmetic techniques to restore areas impacted by major illnesses such as cancer, for instance, the aftermath of disease treatments like rebuilding a woman's breast after surgery for breast cancer or restoring areas impacted by traumatic injuries like those from dog bites or burns. People also see them as enhancing their physical features for aesthetic reasons.

Cosmetic surgery improves a person's appearance, self-esteem and self-confidence. It can be performed on the face or any other body part.
