Here at InformedSurgery.com, you’ll be able to join our forum and meet others facing similar issues as yourself for support. It is natural to be afraid of an impending surgery. It is also an emotional experience to subject yourself or a loved one to surgery of any kind, and having the support of others who have been there can help you feel more confident and secure in facing the procedure. Once you’re well on your way to a full recovery, we hope you’ll come back and offer your support to others who are experiencing that same fear that you did before your surgery.
Our forum also offers you the chance to talk with surgeons. While they can’t diagnose online, they can offer you an explanation of what you can expect from a surgical procedure, and give you advice to make the most of your recovery.
Whether you are considering an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) or breast implants, you’ll want to find out what to expect before you have your procedure. Both of these procedures are commonplace, and are routinely performed without any complications. Rhytidectomy, or face lift surgery, is also a common procedure that is done on a daily basis with good results. Maybe you’re more interested in liposuction, another surgical procedure that can remove pockets of fat cells from certain areas of the body. You’ll be able to find out exactly what this procedure entails, and whether it is right for you. Others may be interested in learning their options for lip augmentation.
Maybe you’re just exploring the idea of plastic surgery. Either way, InformedSurgery.com is here to help you learn enough about any procedures that you have an interest in so you can make the best decision for yourself at the right time, including figuring what a procedure may cost.
There are many reasons someone may need reconstructive surgery. Some babies are born with a cleft lip that prevents them from nursing properly. Reconstructive surgery can repair this. Breast reduction surgery is a true blessing to some women who have suffered from severe back problems; for those who have faced breast cancer and had to have a mastectomy, breast reconstruction may make them feel like themselves again. Scar revision can be done for those experiencing severe scarring from previous surgeries or accidents. A skin graft is a very exacting procedure used to repair severe burns. Otoplasty, or ear reconstruction can be used to repair damaged ears or make misshapen ears more pleasing. No matter the reason for requiring or desiring reconstructive surgery, we can help you learn your options and what to expect from your chosen procedure.
Weight loss surgery
Many people are considering weight loss surgery to help them lose weight and regain their health. Lap band surgery implants a temporary band that reduces the size of the stomach, causing the patient to feel full sooner. It is removed once the patient’s weight goals are attained. Vertical banded gastroplasty, or stomach stapling, reduces the size of the stomach so the patient feels full sooner, and it slows down digestion, so they feel full longer. Gastric bypass surgery creates a small pouch and a larger pouch in the stomach, then connects both to the small intestine. Bypass surgery restricts the amount of food that can be eaten by the patient. Here at InformedSurgery.com, you can take the time to learn about each procedure, and talk to the surgeons and patients who have had these procedures. When you know the risks and benefits of each procedure, you’ll be well-equipped to discuss your options with your own physician.
Non-cosmetic surgeries are procedures that are less invasive. Most can be performed in a clinic or day surgery, and include procedures like mesotherapy, dermabrasion, collagen, restylane and botox injections, sclerotherapy and chemical peels.
Collagen injections take a substance (collagen) that is found naturally in the body and placing it in other places. Common places for collagen injections would be the lips or in deep facial lines. The collagen fills out these areas, reducing wrinkles and creating more voluptuous lips. Botox treatments and injections are done in the forehead muscles to lessen lines and wrinkles. Chemical skin peelsand dermabrasion both work in different ways to remove the upper layers of skin to reveal the new lower layers, creating a younger look. Mesotherapy injects various pharmaceuticals into fat cells to help them break down. Sclerotherapy is used to fade varicose veins.
Many people who eventually consider plastic surgery start with some non-cosmetic procedures first. Visit our chat rooms to talk with others who have undergone these procedures. They can tell you what to expect, and how they liked the results. You may even find some good recommendations for clinics to go to for these procedures. Talk with experts.
