Cosmetic surgery techniques have evolved having their origins in reconstructive surgery techniques. Many of the procedures that are now used on a large scale for the improvement of the aesthetic aspect actually started as solutions for reconstructive problems. The relation between these two types of procedures is very close and this is why plastic surgeons experienced in reconstructive surgery have a solid base in approaching aesthetic surgeries.
Cosmetic surgery is a branch of the plastic surgery which has the purpose to improve the aesthetic aspect of the human body, meaning either the correction of some constitutional or developed morphological deficiencies, or the removal of the aging signs.
The patients who apply for cosmetic surgery services are healthy persons who want to improve their life quality either for personal or socio-professional reasons. The people with a better personal image are more efficient in their job, more confident and they interact in a positive way with the others. Many people have jobs in which the way they look is important even if they are not public persons. People are judged, at least to a certain degree, by the way they look. A youthful and pleasant look may be the means of staying competitive.
Self-confidence is a sine qua non for our health and success in life!
As for the surgical services, they require extremely good quality and great responsibility from the doctors that practice it. Besides a solid experience in the reconstructive field, the plastic surgeons that perform in the cosmetic surgery field must prove an extremely fine discernment and a professional consciousness for the correct indications. The surgeon must correctly explain to the patient the real possibilities and the risks which derive from such procedures.
The patient must understand that the are no miraculous surgeries and every cosmetic surgical procedure has its advantages and its disadvantages, in direct relation with the surgical indication, the surgeon's experience, the technique and materials used, depending in a high degree on the patient's individual particularities.
