What problems can plastic surgeons help with?
A plastic surgeon is a medical professional who specializes in the surgical repair and alteration of the human body. Plastic surgery involves a wide range of procedures, including breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lifts, facelifts, brow lifts, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and rhinoplasty (nose reconstruction). In the United States, millions of plastic surgery procedures are performed, and this number only increases every year.
Plastic surgeons are doctors who specialize in the treatment of plastic and reconstructive surgery on the face, hands and body. A plastic surgeon is a person who is particularly skilled in plastic surgery, and can often be found performing cosmetic procedures on the face. The main role of a plastic surgeon is to improve a person’s appearance by reconstructing damaged tissue and correcting defects caused by diseases, accidents, or the natural effects of aging.
There are many common plastic surgery procedures; according to the 2020 plastic surgery statistics, these are the five most popular plastic surgery procedures:
Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty) — The most popular plastic surgery procedure performed in the United States in 2020 was rhinoplasty, with a total of 352,555 procedures.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) — Restructuring the eyelids, a procedure known as blepharoplasty, was the second-most popular plastic surgery performed in 2020, with a total of 325,112.
Facelift (Rhytidectomy) — Facelifts have been among the most popular plastic surgery procedures for many years; in 2020, there were 234,374 facelifts performed in the United States.
Liposuction — Normally topping the list, liposuction was the fourth-most popular plastic surgery treatment performed in 2020, with 211,067 treatments in total.
Breast Augmentation — The breasts are the single-most area worked on by plastic surgeons compared to any other area of the body. Plastic surgery for the breasts includes reduction, lift, reconstruction and augmentation; there were 193,073 breast augmentations performed in 2020 in the United States.
Plastic surgeons can help with a myriad of problems, both cosmetic and physical, by reshaping the body and forming it to be more functional or aesthetically pleasing. Common problems plastic surgeons help with include:
Breast Reconstruction/Reduction — Plastic surgery can help women reconstruct their breasts after a mastectomy; they can also improve asymmetry such as different-sized breasts. In addition to augmenting the size of breasts, plastic surgeons can also reduce breasts’ size when large breasts cause back problems or other health concerns.
Injury Recovery — Traumatic injuries, bites and burns often leave behind significant scars; these scars can be a source of self-confidence problems and remind a person about their traumatic experience. Both on the surface of the skin and below, plastic surgeons can treat and repair skin and tissue damage.
Treatment for Medical Conditions & Health Problems — For various medical conditions and health problems, plastic surgery is an incredibly helpful and beneficial solution. While eyelid correction surgery can improve vision for those suffering from drooping eyelids, it can also help you to look less tired. Rhinoplasty, colloquially known as a nose job, can help people who suffer from impaired breathing caused by structural defects in the nose.
Physical Abnormalities — Plastic surgery can treat a wide range of physical abnormalities and birth defects. Plastic surgeons can treat other conditions caused by genetic abnormalities as well, including extra appendages, webbed fingers or toes, ear abnormalities, and tumors.
