Plastic Surgery Dubai

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. Reconstructive surgery aims to reconstruct a part of the body or improve its functioning, cosmetic surgery aims at improving the appearance of it. Both of these techniques are used throughout the world.

Plastic surgery does not focus only on the aesthetic outcome. Plastic surgery repairs birth defects or deals with burns and diseases. Examples of reconstructive plastic surgery procedures are:
• Burn Repair Surgery
• Hand Surgery
• Scar Revision Surgery
• Lower Extremity Reconstruction
• Breast Reconstruction

Reconstructive plastic surgery is performed to correct functional impairments caused by burns and to improve function, but it may be done to approximate a normal appearance.

The most common reconstructive procedures are tumour removal, scar repair, and Breast Reduction. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of reconstructive breast reductions for women increased by 5 percent in the recent years. Breast reduction in men also increased by 7 percent.
Some other common reconstructive surgical procedures include Breast reconstruction surgery which is an operation to create of a new breast shape after removal of a whole breast (mastectomy) or part of the breast (breast-conserving surgery).

The new breast shape can be created using an implant and/or your own tissue from another part of the body, usually the back or lower abdomen (belly). Reconstructed breasts don’t usually have a nipple but one can be created with surgery and tattooing. Prosthetic stick-on nipples can also be used.The aim of breast reconstruction is to create a breast shape that looks as natural as possible and to try to match the breast on the other side in size, shape and position.

Plastic surgeons use microsurgery to transfer tissue for coverage of a defect when no local tissue is available. Free flaps of skin, muscle, bone, fat, or a combination may be removed from the body, moved to another site on the body.

Plastic Surgery is a combination of the reconstructive part and the cosmetic part, where the efforts of the surgeon must concentrate in order to create the best outcome for the patients.

Plastic Surgery Dubai FAQs

Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve appearance and self-esteem. Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. In general, reconstructive surgery is performed to improve function, but may also be completed to approximate a normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery is typically covered by most health insurance policies, although coverage for specific procedures and levels of coverage may vary greatly.
Each patient tolerates pain after surgery in different ways. I will prescribe the appropriate pain medications to help minimize any discomfort. In general, most facial cosmetic operations have minimal discomfort post-operatively. Liposuction is slightly more uncomfortable, and operations that require elevation or tightening of the muscles-such as an abdominoplasty or breast augmentation can cause discomfort equal to a C-section.
Yes. Depending upon what the procedure, it might make sense to sleep in a reclining (not horizontal) position for one week following surgery to minimize the collection of fluids in the face and eyelids. Follow the instructions you will be given about making and administering your cold and warm compresses. These will not only reduce bruising and swelling, but they will also maximize and promote healing.
