Plastic Surgery

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty that aims to eliminate congenital or acquired tissue losses, deformities and dysfunctions, and the correction of body appearance. In a general manner, it includes breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lifting, gynecomastia, tummy tuck, liposuction, arm and thigh lift operations, and etc. Except for those, plastic surgery operations for congenital or subsequent deformations can also be performed by specialist physicians.

The primary function of the plastic surgery is to bring an acceptable appearance and functionality to an organ whose normal shape or appearance is impaired, or whose function lost partially or completely. The origin of the “plastic” comes from the word “plasticos” in the ancient Greek language and “plasticus” in Latin. It means “kneading” and “shaping”. While usually the patient’s own tissues are used in plastic surgery operations, artificial materials such as artificial bone and silicone may also be used for repair under appropriate conditions. The meaning of plastic and reconstructive surgery is to restore the anatomical and aesthetic appearance functionally by reshaping the tissues according to the existing disorder, whether it is developmental or subsequent.

Plastic surgery operations can be performed on patients of all age groups. While the boundaries of aesthetic surgery operations, concerning almost every part of the body and addressing a very comprehensive area, have not been determined precisely, they are gradually expanding. The list of all aesthetic operation types operated so far is given below.
