Cosmetic Surgery Can Fix Scars

cosmetic surgeryYou will come across many cases where people have undergone one or the other cosmetic surgery. A cosmetic surgery is an actual surgery that doesn't include cosmetic procedures like wrinkle filling injection or others.

Apart from many people undergo reconstructive surgery as well. This type of surgery is meant to repair damaged or malformed tissues, bones or organs. It is often difficult to separate a cosmetic surgery with a reconstructive surgery. This is because in the case of a traumatic situation, has to undergo both cosmetic as well as reconstructive surgery at the same time.

Aesthetic surgery involves techniques intended for the "enhancement" of appearance through surgical and medical techniques, and is specifically concerned with maintaining normal appearance, restoring it, or enhancing it beyond the average level toward some aesthetic ideal.

If a person has broken his bones of the face and his nose in a road accident, then with the help of an orthopaedic surgeon his/ her damaged body parts can be fixed and the person will be able to perform his/ her regular task once again.

I knew a woman who considered her lovely daughter's cleft palate plastic surgery unsuccessful. No one but the mother "saw" the residual damage on her daughter's face, the scars of surgical intervention as well as the traces of the original defect. Living inside her mother's vision of her, the daughter, too, saw herself as materially damaged. Where did her damage come from, and was it internal or external? Why was the mother blind to her daughter's beauty?

"The initial feeling of the mother is guilt." Perhaps the mother of a congenitally deformed child took medication or smoked or drank. But these are just ways of attributing concrete causes to what is psychically more elusive. Isn't it the sense that some secret defect has reached the light of day through one's child?
