Cosmetic surgery, usually is done "because you want to look better" or you just Want it done. example.. your nose is to big, cosmetic will change that. Cosmetic or exterior or outside appearance. Cosmetic will also fix damage caused in accidents that you see.
Re-constructive surgery, say you had an accident and your hand got crushed, most of the muscles and skin tissue will be damaged or missing so it will have to be re-constructed, so re-constructive surgery will fix this.. hope this helps..
Answer: Reconstructive facial surgery is a specialty practice of maxillofacial surgery. Plastic surgeons or oral & maxillofacial surgeons are usually the people that you turn to for facial reconstruction surgery.
Answer: There are differences between outpatient surgery settings that should also be considered when outpatient surgery is suggested. Ambulatory Surgical Centers are privately owned, free standing facilities that may or may not be affiliated with a hospital.Because the ambulatory surgery center is not affiliated with a hospital, the staff may not be "on call." … If you develop complications and require emergency services or hospital admittance after your operation, hospital staff may have difficulty getting information from the ambulatory surgery centers as quickly as they could from an affiliated outpatient facility.
Answer: Ankle fusion surgery is performed when the joint becomes worn out,most commonly due to arthritis. Before this surgery is performed,it is common for the patient to be in a high amount of pain. Duringthe surgery, the surgeon removes the cartilage of the knee joint.After surgery, there is a long recovery process in which thepatient wears a cast and keeps weight off of the joint for 8 to 12weeks. After the cast is removed, the patient begin physicaltherapy. Throughout the entire process, x-rays are taken to makesure that the bones are fusing properly. After complete recovery, aperson can typically walk normally.
Answer: These are two very different types of technologies and procedures and usually for different indication. IOL surgery stands for intraocular lens surgery and is replacing the natural crystalline lens with a plastic lens. This is usually done for patients with cataracts who cannot see without having their lens removed. More recently, some patients are undergoing what is termed a refractive lens exchange. This means taking out a clear lens and putting in a plastic one for the purpose of correcting refractive error and thus enters the realm of refractive surgery. Refractive surgery, the operation(s) for correcting vision to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contacts includes LASIK which is a laser procedure done under a protective flap. This is the most frequently performed refractive procedure accounting for perhaps 85% or more of all refractive procedures. Next in frequency is PRK or a surface laser procedure, and refractive lens exchange is only done on less than 5% of all refractive procedures. Of course when someone needs cataract surgery there is a refractive component because these patients want to be able to see well without glasses, but this is different from a primary refractive procedure.
Refractive lensectomy or refractive lens exchange is typically done on older patients who have or will be getting cataracts shortly, that is typically over the age of 55 or 60 years. Also this can be done for types of corrections that do not do as well with LASIK such as high degrees of corrections, especially farsightedness.
Ultimately, on the same patient one would expect similar results for IOL surgery and LASIK if both were in the range to expect a good result. The technology for both are extremely good and both can result in satisfied patients. The risk profiles are different between the procedures, since the IOL is intraocular, that is within the eye, it comes with some more serious risks for complications.
Answer: Hi. Studies show that about 90% of people who underwent cataract surgery have better vision afterwards (between 20/20 and 20/40 vision). Improvement of near, immediate and distance vision, color perception and night vision were also noted after intraocular lens (IOL) placements, but results may vary depending on the type of IOL used.
Experts agree that up to 92% of patients achieve better vision without glasses after the procedure and can sustain good vision even years after lens replacement.
However, for some people who cannot have an IOL, soft contact lens or corrective glasses may also provide high magnification, although not as precise as IOLs. If you have more questions, discuss your concerns with your ophthalmologist.
Answer: If the PSA levels conitnue to rise that would indicate that some of the cancerous cells may have migrated from the diseased prostate gland prior to removal. Your MD or urologist will give you much more detailed info on this possibility.
Answer: If you visit your Doctor and explain your problem, you may get a referral to an Oral Son the health service. This is very likely if you have a pathalogical condition , but unlikely if you just want whiter teeth , for example.
What is angioplasty surgery?
Angioplasty is the surgical repair of a blood vessel, either by inserting a balloon-tipped catheter to unblock it, or by reconstructing or replacing part of the vessel.
Answer: Ensure that you take plenty of fluids and your diet include a higher than normal level of fibre, to ensure your stool is softened. Use laxative, sparingly, if necessary and anti-inflammatory painkiller, for example iboprofen. Bathe the affected area twice daily with a weak saline solution. If it doesnt settle down after a few days return to see your medical practioner.
Answer: You must be patient, this will take a couple more weeks to straighten itself out. If it is not giving you too much pain exercise a bit more, if it is hurting too much, ask you Doctor what is going on. It will take a bit of time.
Answer: There may be a relation to the earlier surgery, as adhesions may have developed. This sometimes, and not so rarely, occurs even with careful operative technique. Or it may be related to the condition the earlier operation was necessary for. Or it may be a coincidence.
Answer: Plastic surgery is a medical specialty concerned with the correction or restoration of form and function. While famous for aesthetic surgery, plastic surgery also includes a variety of fields such as craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, burn surgery, microsurgery, and reconstructive surgery.Cosmetic Surgery defined as a subspecialty of surgery that uniquely restricts itself to the enhancement of appearance through surgical and medical techniques. It is specifically concerned with maintaining normal appearance, restoring it, or enhancing it beyond the average level toward some aesthetic ideal. Plastic Surgery in the true sense of the word is that surgery performed by plastic surgeons. Plastic surgery can further be divided into cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery. The difficulty in the question is that alot of non-plastic surgeons advertise that they are "cosmetic surgeons". Only plastic surgeons are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons.

Answer: If someone has already had successful cataract surgery and requires LASIK to improve myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness) or astigmatism, the LASIK procedure would reshape the front of the cornea and should not adversely affect the prior cataract removal and lens implant surgery if LASIK is done after the eye has completely healed from cataract surgery.
However, for someone who has previously had LASIK and is now considering cataract surgery, it is not so simple. LASIK reshapes the cornea and corneal measurements are used to calculate the intraocular lens used to replace the cataract. Unfortunately, the calculations currently used do not work as well after LASIK (or other refractive surgery). So, anyone who has previously had corneal refractive surgery prior to cataract surgery may need it again after cataract surgery.
For further questions, you should ask your surgeon.
