What is Cosmetic Surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is an elective surgical procedure performed on various body parts with the primary purpose of improving the individual’s appearance. These treatments are chosen by people to improve their self-esteem and self-confidence.

People choose cosmetic surgery for a variety of reasons. Some want to look younger, while others want to change features they never liked. Though cosmetic treatments are elective, one should understand that this decision should not be taken lightly. The results of most surgeries cannot be reversed, and the patient will have to live with them for the rest of their lives. Therefore, it is important that the patients have the right motivation.

Risks of Cosmetic Surgery

All the potential risks and complications associated with cosmetic surgery are discussed with the individual before proceeding. If the patient’s body mass index is 30 or higher (obese) or he/she has diabetes, there are considerably higher risks of surgery. People who smoke also have a higher risk of impaired healing after the procedure. 

Thus, during the consultations, the cosmetic surgeon will discuss the risks in detail. Commonly reported risks of cosmetic surgery are- 

  • Complications related to anesthesia, including pneumonia, blood clots, etc. 
  • Infection at the incision site that can lead to significant scarring. 
  • Fluid build-up under the skin.
  • Moderate to excessive bleeding during or after the surgery. 
  • Abnormal scarring of the skin tissues. 
  • Separation of the surgical wound. 
  • Numbness or tingling sensation in the treated area, which may be permanent.

The surgeon proceeds with the treatment only after ensuring that the patient understands all the risks and complications associated with the procedure.

Questions to Ask About a Procedure

While planning the treatment, consider asking the following questions to the cosmetic surgeon-

What to Expect from Cosmetic Surgery?

Having a clear understanding of what happens before, during, and after the treatment is crucial. The outcome of cosmetic treatments depends on how well the individual understands the limitations of such procedures. While many physical characteristics of the body can be successfully changed with cosmetic surgery, others cannot. Thus, it is crucial that the patient has realistic expectations to feel satisfied with the results. 

Before the Surgery

The preparation for the treatment starts with the surgeon informing the patient about the specifics of the procedure, what to expect, the benefits, risks, possible complications, and alternatives. In some cases, the doctor might recommend an additional procedure to enhance the overall results. 

The surgeon also explains the concept of symmetry and balance to help the patients understand how the changes made through cosmetic surgery can or will impact them. 

Other things that the patient can expect include the following-

Results of Cosmetic Surgery

The results of cosmetic treatments are usually not immediate. The patients have to spend 3 to 6 weeks initially in recovery before they notice visible changes in their appearance.

Despite the preparations, the patients experience the common and temporary side effects of cosmetic surgery, such as redness, bruising, swelling, etc. These side effects can take a while to disappear, which might give rise to feelings of disappointment and frustration. So, it is important that the patients don’t judge the results prematurely.

Keep realistic expectations, and as the body heals, the final results will appear and improve over time. The actual recovery time varies for each patient depending on the individual’s healing abilities and the type of cosmetic surgery. Overall, the duration will be 6 to 12 weeks.

Types of Cosmetic Surgery

A variety of cosmetic procedures are performed for different parts of the body. Based on the body parts, the following are the most common types of cosmetic surgery.

Besides the above-mentioned treatments, other treatments, such as chemical peels, lip fillers, fat grafting, laser hair removal, botox, laser or light-based facials, etc., have also gained popularity in the last few decades in India.

FAQ Around Cosmetic Surgeries

What is the difference between cosmetic and plastic surgery?

Cosmetic surgery is the discipline of medicine which solely focuses on the appearance of the individual. Unlike this, plastic surgery focuses on restoring the function of the body parts affected due to birth disorders, trauma, burns, and disease.

What are the educational qualifications of a plastic surgeon and a cosmetic surgeon?

Ideally, physicians pursuing cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery complete medical school, a residency, and/or a fellowship program in plastic surgery. Then the surgeon is certified by the board to practice. The path followed by cosmetic and plastic surgeons is almost the same. The key difference is that after doing the plastic surgery fellowship program, the surgeon further needs additional training in cosmetic surgery through another fellowship training program. Only then he/she is certified as a cosmetic surgeon.

Does cosmetic surgery cause scarring?

All types of surgical procedures, including cosmetic surgery, lead to scarring. In most cases, the incision is placed smartly in a location where the scar can be hidden or covered. For instance, while performing breast augmentation, the incision is made in the underarm or underneath the breast crease to hide it properly under clothing or the natural crease of the body.

Does cosmetic surgery require hospitalization?

Most cosmetic surgeries do not require hospitalization, and the patient is discharged on the same day. However, in some cases, the surgeon may recommend an overnight stay to ensure that the patient is in optimal health.

What is the best age for cosmetic surgeries?

Generally, patients can undergo cosmetic surgery after they are 18 years or older. The best age for specific treatments varies, such as for hair transplants, surgeons usually ask the patients to wait till 25. The surgeon will discuss the eligibility criteria regarding the age before proceeding with the treatment.
