What types of plastic surgeries exist?

There are multiple types of plastic surgeries and they have increased in popularity in recent years. Thanks to scientific and technological advances, there are surgeries for almost all parts of our body. At Forma Tu Cuerpo we accompany some of these processes, for this reason we want to tell you what some of these surgeries are and what care you should take when performing one.

When talking about the topic of plastic surgeries, it is important to keep in mind that we will encounter different types of plastic surgeries that, although they seem the same, are different and we want you to be clear so that you can know more about this topic.

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty that deals with the correction of any hereditary, acquired, tumorous or simply involutional process that requires repair or replacement, or that affects the shape and/or function of the body. Their techniques are based on transplantation and tissue mobilization through grafts and flaps or even implants of inert material.

Reconstructive plastic surgery seeks to restore or improve function and physical appearance in injuries caused by accidents and burns, in diseases and tumors of the skin and supporting tissues, and in congenital anomalies, mainly of the face, hands, and genitals.

Aesthetic plastic surgery, on the other hand, deals with generally healthy patients and its objective is the correction of alterations in the aesthetic norm with the aim of obtaining greater facial and body harmony or the consequences produced by aging. This has an impact on emotional stability, improving the quality of life through professional and emotional relationships, etc.

What care should I take after plastic surgery?

Now, if we talk about the care to be taken after plastic surgery, we must take into account the aforementioned since each treatment must be advised and treated by a specialist, but we want you to take into account the most general care for this type of surgery. interventions.
Some of the more general precautions that you should take into account are:

  • Eat well : A balanced and adequate diet allows the healing process to advance quickly and recovery to be successful in a comprehensive manner and not only with the affected organs. It is important that you consume water, fruits, vegetables, foods rich in fiber and proteins that allow you to feel better.
  • Rest : It is necessary that your doctor in charge talk to you about the times necessary for proper care and recovery, since you should avoid daily activities that require efforts that you are not capable of carrying out in that process, but do not suspend physical activity in its entirety. You must rest and allow your body to recover from the inflammation.

  • Take your medications and use the additional prescribed products : Surgeries generate pain and inflammation in the areas where the intervention was performed. The surgeon may prescribe medications to control the inflammation. On the other hand, there are some devices or products that are prescribed to improve and promote the care and advancement of the body, for example post-surgical girdles , for surgeries such as abdominoplasty, liposuction, buttock lift, among others; Chin belts, for procedures such as bichectomy and double chin reduction.

On the other hand, there are elements such as female urinary devices that allow women to urinate standing up. There are also post-surgical foams and post-operative boards that are used when surgeries are focused on the woman's abdominal area.

You must comply to the letter with the use of medications and additional elements for your recovery since self-medicating or altering the doses can cause unwanted effects.

  • Personal hygiene: The wounds that occur after these surgeries require special care and cleaning, which must be explained by your doctor and your duty is to carry out the recommendations.

Also take into account the cleanliness of your additional items, for example in this blog you can seehow to wash a Colombian Forma Tu Body girdle. The girdles are made with fabrics that allow your skin to breathe properly.

  • Do not smoke or consume alcoholic beverages: Cigarettes and alcoholic beverages prevent adequate oxygenation of the blood, which is a fundamental process for the repair of tissues that underwent surgery.
