All living beings undergo a subtle change in their body with every passing minute. The process is called Ageing. Bones, muscles, organs and skin mature and expand in size as one ages. Aging gets affected by number of lifestyle factors such as food habits, smoking, activities/exercise, rest time, exposure to sun & dust, etc. as well as hereditary factors. As a consequence, the smooth, radiant skin & healthy body structure we usually see in children transforms into the skin with wrinkles, spots & fat deposition.
Loosely speaking, deformity relates to appearance or structure of body part whereas disorder relates to functioning of body part. Deformity & disorder develop due to variety of reasons such as lifestyle, hereditary factors at various stages of life as well as externally acquired deformities/disorders mainly caused by accidents, Sun/dust/chemical exposure etc. Surgeons in the field of plastic surgery treat both deformities and disorders.
Any Aesthetic and reconstructive procedure involves a surgery and a surgery itself results in permanent change & carries a risk of potential complication. No surgeon can guarantee result before the surgery. By following right procedures, your qualified plastic surgeon will endeavor to match your as well as her expectation and minimize chances of failure and complication.
Yes, there will be permanent scars when skin is cut for surgery and is stitched back. Scars heal or fade over time. During consultation, your surgeon will discuss with you in detail about the treatment, scars, healing time etc.

For surgical procedures, your surgeon will often call you for 2nd consultation. We don’t want patients to decide on the treatment during 1st consultation. We want them to think over it at ease. During 2nd consultation, your surgeon will answer any more questions you may have had since your 1st consultation. At this time, we may also take pictures for medical record. Before the procedure, your surgeon will share with you following.
• DOs & DON’Ts
• Pre-operative instructions specific to your procedure/treatment
• Instructions for the day of procedure/treatment
• Any other documentation to be completed (such as required by hospital)
You will complete any documentation/formalities as required by the surgeon/hospital. Once the surgery or procedure is completed, you will be given following.
- DOs & DON’Ts
- Post-operative instructions specific to your treatment
Its difficult to quantify number of follow-ups needed but we encourage patients to see their plastic surgeon often after the surgery to check healing, change dressing & discuss any questions. That helps in reducing post-operative anxiety. As most of swelling/bruising settles in 1st week or two, you won’t need frequent follow ups after that.
