Reconstructive plastic surgery

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. You may be interested in plastic surgery due to birth defects, disease, burns or for other and more personal cosmetic reasons.

Plastic surgery can help improve the way you look and enhance your original features. Whether you are looking to have plastic surgery because of birth defects or for personal reasons, the results can boost your self-confidence, build your self-esteem and provide you with an entirely different outlook on life.

There are many options that can improve your life and correct disfigurements or enhance your appearance. Some of the more commonly popular plastic surgery procedures are abdominoplasty, Liposuction for Body Lifts, Arm Lifts, etc., facial surgeries such as Face Lifts and rhinoplasty, as well as nonsurgical procedures like Botox injections.

Principal areas of plastic surgery

  • Reconstructive surgery includes microsurgery and generally stresses on re-fixing or masking the negative effects of disease, trauma or surgery. It may include the disguise of defects with flaps or the moving of tissue from other parts of the body to the place where reconstruction has to be done.
  • Cosmetic or aesthetic surgery is usually performed in order to improve the visual appeal and change the unflattering features. However, even with today’s technological advances, plastic surgery is still no cake walk. It is surgery and that carries automatic risks, such as
  • ·        Blood clots
  • ·        Excessive or unexpected bleeding
  • ·        Infection
  • ·        Paralysis
  • ·        Loss or change of sensation
  • ·        Incomplete healing
  • ·        Anesthesia malfunction
  • ·        Secondary surgeries
  • ·        No satisfaction with results
  • ·        Nerve damage
  • ·        High debt or bankruptcy due to cost

WHAT IS HAIR TRANSPLANT?

Hair transplantation is a surgical technique that moves hair follicles from a part of the body called the ‘donor site’ to a bald or balding part of the body known as the ‘recipient site’. It is primarily used to treat male pattern baldness. In this minimally invasive procedure, grafts containing hair follicles that are genetically resistant to balding are transplanted to the bald scalp.

Hair transplantation can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair and chest hair to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants. Hair transplantation differs from skin grafting in that grafts contain almost all of the epidermis and dermis surrounding the hair follicle, and many tiny grafts are transplanted rather than a single strip of skin.

The process involving follicular hair transplants is considered to be the most effective among hair restoration methods. In follicular hair transplant, the surgeon transplants hair from the permanent zone in the back of the scalp onto the affected areas.

Follicular hair transplant procedure

During follicular hair transplant the surgeon scans the follicular units to be removed from the donor tissue. This stereo microscopic dissection helps in protecting the follicular units. It also ensures a rich yield of both the follicular units and the total amount of hair that is restored.

Donor strip – In follicular hair transplants, the donor strip is the hair strip that is taken from one part of the body and transplanted to the bald region of the scalp. In this technique, the donor tissue is removed in one piece. This ensures that the follicular units being removed from the back of the scalp do not suffer from any damage.

Donor strip extraction – The donor strip is first taken out from the permanent zone in the back of the scalp. Then it is transplanted onto the areas of the scalp where there is no growth of hair. The single-strip harvesting in follicular hair transplants ensures preservation of the follicular units and protection of individual hair follicles from possible damage.

Advantages of hair transplant

Hair transplants are completely safe and natural. No special chemicals or medicines are used in this process that might damage your hair. Amongst all the hair growing methods hair transplant surgery is the most natural.

If you want a long term and permanent solution for your baldness then consider hair transplant surgery. There is no hassle in handling the transplanted hair. The person can maintain it as per his wish. He can color it oil it, wash it and can do hair style also.

A brief note on facelift surgery procedure

Also known as Rhytidectomy, a face lift is a surgical procedure that is aimed at reducing wrinkles, thus eliminating signs of ageing. The procedure also tightens sagging skin along the cheeks and the skin, giving you a younger looking skin. This procedure is suitable for both men and women, and are popular for both cosmetic and aesthetic reason. Facelift is also a standard procedure in reconstruction surgeries, especially when removal of a tumor or extra growth from the face is involved.

The usual process

The most common method of facelift surgery involves making an incision from the temple and flowing down and behind the ears, before meeting at the other end of the hair line. In case of a sagging jaw line, an incision will be made under the chin to correct this. Once the incisions are made, the skin is lifted and pulled back and the overlapping excess skin is trimmed away.

Once this is done, excess fat is removed, the muscle is tightened and the skin is re-stitched along the cut lines. Once the surgery is completed, the patient is expected to stay in the hospital for atleast a day, so that the doctors can monitor the healing progress and make sure that there are no further complications.

Modern face lifts are performed using keyhole surgeries, where small incisions are made on the skin and the procedure is completed using an endoscope to remove excess fat and offer skin lifts. This reduces chances of scars and also reduces healing time.

Pre surgery preparation

Like all surgeries, a face lift too requires a fair degree of preparation. You need to take all the necessary pre-surgery precautions in order to minimize any chances of complications. You might have to discontinue your medications for a while and also follow a strict diet. At Asian Hair and Skin clinic we offer world class face lift surgeries for our clients.

Simple hair fall remedies

Two main causes of hair fall are poor dies and genetics. Now, there is nothing you can do about your genetics, but you can control what you eat, which can help control hair fall to a large extent, if not prevent it completely. It is completely normal for people to lose a certain amount of hair every month. In fact most people shed up to 100 hairs every day, which gets replaced quite frequently.

Hair goes through three distinct stages- the growth stage, resting stage and the shedding stage. Tresses have a life span of three to six years, which means, most hari loss is not permanent.

Alopecia is a common form of hair loss, which causes hair loss on any part of the body including beard, eye lashes, head etc. increasing in shedding of your tresses can be due to a number of factors including food, genetics, medications, radiation therapy, stress, etc. Some ailments such as anemia and lupus can cause significant balding and thinning of hair as well.

The best way to counter hair fall is to take good care of your hair. Using good hair oil and scalp massages regularly is recommended. Olive oil, almond oil and coconut oils are preferred. If you do not wish to have oily hair throughout the day, massaging your scalp with an of these oils before a luke warm shower is suggested.

Washing your hair frequently can also cause hair fall. You need to allow the natural oils formed by your scalp to act on your hair, which will keep the tresses stronger. Regular hair treatments like steam and massage will help keep the hair strong and healthy.

If all fails, you can always opt for professional hair fall treatments. Asian hair and skin clinic is one of Bangalore’s leading hair transplant clinics. For more information about oru services, do visit our website at http://www.asianhairnskinclinic.com/

Post laser hair removal care

Laser hair removal is quite a safe procedure, where high intensity lasers are used to remove hair permanently from unwanted regions. The laser beam absorbed by the melanin (growth center of the hair) destroys the follicle cells permanently. Since powerful lasers are used in the treatment, it can result in swelling and redness for a couple of weeks after the procedure has been administered.

One must take good care of the skin during the healing process in order to ensure speedy recovery. Although it might get a little itchy, it is advised not to scratch the area. If any crust develops you can let it fall off naturally, and applying an aloe ointment can help soothe the itch and swelling. It is advised to apply the ointment several times a day to keep the area moist.

Avoid any vigorous activity such as sports for a few days after the treatment to let the skin settle. It is best to avoid hot baths and showers, and swimming in chlorinated water for at least a couple of days after the treatment. It is best to wear loose clothing for two to three days. In case of any infection such as pus, tenderness or fever, you can contact the clinic for a follow up.
