What is Plastic Surgery?
Plastic surgery is board spectrum of both reconstructive
and cosmetic surgical procedures. The word comes from "Plastikos"
the word for molding. Plastic surgery has been an
advanced surgical specialty that lead the way in
management of burns. Cleft lip and other congenital
deformities, traumatic injuries including replantation
of amputated parts, microvascular surgery, hand surgery
and cosmetic surgery of the face, breast and body.
Plastic surgery has been around for centuries but the
use of silicone plastic has been around 35 years. Many
physicians and surgeons may refer to themselves in the
generic sense of "plastic surgeon" but, a plastic
surgeon is a very identifiable entity. That is someone
who has undergone the long and rigorous training in an
accredited plastic surgery residency and has taken the
appropriate examinations to receive certification by a
Board of Plastic Surgery.
How to choose your Surgeon?
Remember in most country in Europe as well in UK, it is
legal for any physician who holds a medical licence,
with or without surgical training, to advertise cosmetic
surgeon. Thatís why understanding board certification is
so important for the prospective patient.
If there is confusion about a surgeonís board
certification, you may consult the General Medical
Council to see if your surgeon is
on the Specialists Register.
Also check the surgeonís hospital affiliation. Qualified
hospitals have been accredited by the joint commission
Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). An appointment to surgical staff of an
accredited hospital indicates that a Surgeonís
capabilities and performance have been reviewed and
judged acceptable by medical colleagues. Ask whether
your surgeon has hospital privileges to perform the
specific surgical procedure in which you are interested,
even if you plan to have your surgery performed in an
outpatient centre or office-based surgical facility.
