Cosmetic Surgery, the Medical Reasons
There are some people who attempt to cheapen the cosmetic surgery profession by chalking it up vanity. While plastic surgery is used to improve one’s appearance, vanity is not always the reason behind the need to improve. In some cases, plastic surgery corrects birth defects. Other times, a correction is needed to solve a medical issue such as trouble breathing, seeing, back pain, and more. Here are some medical reasons for the plastic surgeries you most often hear about.
Breast augmentation, or a more widely known as a boob job, is the most common plastic surgery procedure in the United States. While one may attribute this to vanity, many breast augmentations are actually performed on breast cancer survivors. In order to eliminate any chance of tumors metastasizing, the entire female reproductive system is sometimes removed. Other times, maybe just the breasts are removed. Sometimes only one affected breast is removed.
No matter what surgery is performed, patients almost always wish for their breasts to be replaced by implants afterward, which is where breast augmentations come into play. Breast Reduction, on the other hand, is often performed on women with larger breasts that cause pain. Large breasts weigh down a woman. They cause back pain and can sweat profusely, causing painful cysts. Breast reduction makes a woman’s large breasts manageable, which can better her quality of life.
Rhinoplasty, otherwise known as a nose job, is often used to correct a visually unappealing nose. What you may not know, however, is that it is also used to correct sleep apnea and breathing problems. Sometimes, people are born with nasal abnormalities or develop them overtime. Rhinoplasty is often the only way to fix these abnormalities.
Whenever a skin cancer is removed, it is normally a plastic surgeon working with their reconstructive prowess to repair the skin with minimal scarring. The new laser treatments used to eliminate sun damage and wrinkles can also be used to rid the face of precancerous growths. Cleft lip and palate are two birth defects that render the patient unable to eat or speak correctly. If plastic surgeons were not able to perform reconstructive surgery on these patients, who knows what their fate would be. They would definitely not be able to live the normal lives they enjoy after cosmetic surgery.
Cleft palates are not the extent of reconstructive surgery for plastic surgeons. Whenever there is a serious trauma, a plastic surgeon is called in to assess the damage and plan a reconstructive surgery. Often, bone structure has to be rebuilt and skin has to be repaired and sometimes grafted after being burned or badly injured.
