After all, when can the patient have reconstructive plastic surgery by surgeon such as Dr. Ahmad Cosmetic Surgeon for example? Know the most common situations:
Correct Congenital Deformities
They are the deformities with which the person was born. Thus, they can happen when genes have changed or due to malformations during pregnancy. You’ve probably met people with one of these deformities. Among them are cleft lip (cleft lip and palate), congenital melanocytic nevus, microtia (very small or absent ears), etc. In some cases, the problem can even give rise to malignant tissue. This is the case of congenital melanocytic nevus, a dark spot that can develop dangerously with or without relief.
Correct Acquired Deformities
Acquired deformities happen when the person suffers a trauma or accident that injures the face or body. Sometimes the problem is also caused by surgery. In these cases, plastic surgery corrects the appearance and, at other times, even restores function lost due to trauma. Some examples are fractures, burns, and blows that cause tissue loss from the face and body, as well as infections that generate necrosis of the affected tissues.
It is even worth noting that some people, for aesthetic reasons, try to improve their appearance by injecting industrial silicone. However, this product is extremely dangerous. Industrial silicone can cause deformities, inflammation and tissue necrosis in the body. Thus, the person can have real holes where the substance was applied. So, she needs reconstructive plastic surgery to fill the area back in and get her skin back. Other times, the result is irreversible. Some of these acquired deformities are caused by disease. See some examples:
Lipodystrophy and Lipoatrophy
Other acquired deformities are lipodystrophy and facial lipoatrophy. They affect people with the HIV, as the drugs used cause the loss or accumulation of body fat. This metabolic alteration causes deformities that can appear on the face, limbs, abdomen, cervical region, breasts, and buttocks. Then the doctor performs reconstructive plastic surgery to correct the appearance.
To remove a tumor, a doctor may need to remove large areas of tissue. Thus, reconstructive plastic surgery improves the appearance of the region.
Spots or moles that appear to be malignant tumors
He removes that mark when the doctor analyzes a mole or other sign on the skin and sees that it could be a malignant tumor. Consequently, he had plastic surgery to make the affected area look as good as possible.
Possibly one of the best-known reconstructive plastic surgeries is breast reconstruction. Thus, several reasons cause the loss of the breast, bringing a great physical and psychological impact on the woman. Although breast cancer is one of these reasons, some other diseases and situations lead to breast loss. Among them is even the possibility of prevention in genetically predisposed women.
Sometimes, to reconstruct the breast, the doctor needs to take several steps. So, he can first place an extender, which is like a bladder but made of surgical material.
The doctor such as Amjad Z. Ahmad, M.D. for example fills this extender with liquid little by little to stretch the skin until it can support a prosthesis. Then, when it reaches that point, the doctor needs to perform a new surgery to place a silicone prosthesis. This is an exciting moment, as the breast represents femininity.
