What is the difference between cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery?
Cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery are frequently talked of interchangeably, however, they are different.
Cosmetic procedures are performed on normal healthy structures of the body in order to change or improve the patient’s appearance and elevate their self-esteem.
Plastic surgery is a speciality that requires many years of training. It is performed to improve function or repair appearance impaired by congenital defects, disease or trauma.
Plastic surgeons, dermatologists and general practitioners are not specifically trained in cosmetic surgery.
They all should do additional training to be competent in aesthetic cosmetic procedures.
Being a member of the ACCSM (Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery and Medicine) is the only body that recognises the training and number of cases the practitioner has performed.
The ACCSM has Plastic surgeons, Dermatologists and general practitioners on their register.
Who is the perfect cosmetic practitioner for you?
You should choose your medical cosmetic doctor/surgeon based on the doctor’s relevant education, training, experience and proven competence with respect to the specific procedure you are considering.
Don’t be afraid to ask hard questions!
