Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery

Plastic & Aesthetic Surgery

Plastic surgery is a sub-area of ​​surgery and deals with the change of organs or the skin surface for aesthetic or functional reasons. Aesthetic surgery includes correction of protruding ears, breast enlargement or reduction, tightening of the skin, liposuction, surgery of varicose veins or the removal of skin tumors.

Burns are one of the most serious types of injuries that the skin and the underlying tissue layers can suffer and are also part of plastic surgery. In burn surgery, specialists work with special skin shifting techniques or with transplants to remove traces of flat burns.

Aesthetic Surgery has a long history. Some of the first aesthetic surgeries were performed in the early 20th century to correct a patient's protruding ears. The field was primarily focused on the face and ears until C.C. Miller began writing books on the subject. Before world war I, aesthetic surgery was rarely practiced. But the advent of the military and increased demand for facial enhancements spawned several maxillo-facial surgery units.

APOCs regulate the practices of aesthetic surgeons, and their adherence to the SMC's ethical guidelines and code of ethics is critical to the practice of medical aesthetics. Aesthetic procedures are not always approved by the SMC, and doctors must be able to demonstrate technical skill and competence before performing them. Patients should always be informed before any surgical procedure, and doctors must ensure patient safety at all times. To avoid malpractice claims, medical practitioners should register under the SMC's APOC.

The SMC requires that cosmetic surgeons have completed a minimum number of cosmetic procedures to meet eligibility requirements. The SMC has a strict set of criteria for eligibility, including a minimum number of aesthetic cases. In the case of nonsurgical procedures, a doctor must meet these criteria or risk losing his/her membership in the Society. The SMC's ethical code states that the SMC must ensure that doctors have the necessary knowledge, technical skills and training to perform such procedures.

Cosmetics are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and are not performed by physicians. However, the FDA and EU regulate aesthetic procedures, so cosmetic products are often confused with medicine. There are also risks associated with using medical devices to treat cosmetic issues. Fortunately, governments are doing their part to educate consumers. Moreover, they are requiring manufacturers to include instructions on the label. But if you're looking to use aesthetic devices, the best way is to consult an expert in this field.

The FDA has strict regulations for aesthetic devices. As a result, a device must be classified according to its intended use and risk. This makes it easy for a manufacturer to get the product on the market. The FDA also requires cosmetic devices to be marketed appropriately. Unlike other medical devices, they are not subject to the same regulations and standards as medical products. In fact, the FDA does not even know if a device is considered a medical device.

There are a few types of aesthetic devices. Most of them are based on four basic principles. There are four groups of products: home use aesthetic products, medical devices, and cosmetic procedures. For a more detailed discussion of these terms, visit the ASAPS website. They also have a list of the products they are regulating. They can't be used without the consent of a physician, which is required for the safety of patients.
