FAQ

What is Plastic Surgery?

Plastic surgery is named from the Greek word “plastikos” which means “to shape”, based on the surgeon re-shaping the form of the patient’s form through surgery. It has nothing to do with the types of materials used in the surgery itself. Frequently, the surgeon will make use of the patient’s own tissues, including tissues from another location of the body, or by reshaping the existing tissues to achieve a better appearance. Hard silicone rubber is a popular material. This should not be confused with the gel silicone which has sparked so much controversy through its use as a filler for breast implants.

What is the difference between ‘Cosmetic’ and ‘Reconstructive’ surgery?

Generally speaking, if a surgery is done primarily to improve the health of a person, or the function of an organ, it is considered medically necessary. Surgeries such as corrective rhinoplasty to improve air flow through the nose, or eyelid surgery to improve the field of vision by lifting sagging, droopy eyelids might fall into this category. These surgeries may or may not also improve the patient’s appearance, but this is a secondary purpose. If a surgery is done with the primary goal of improving the appearance of the patient, this is considered a cosmetic procedure. Usually these procedures must be paid for out of pocket, except in some cases of correcting accidental or congenital deformity.

What parts of the body do you do Plastic Surgery on?

There are commonly performed cosmetic procedures for virtually every part of the face, including the neck, nose, eyes, ears chin, cheekbones, forehead, as well as the breasts and abdomen. Additionally, scar revision and liposuction surgeries are potentially possible on most areas of the body.

Is there any visible scarring?

Any time a cut or incision is made in the skin, there is a scar left behind as part of the normal healing process. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons have received special training and have extensive experience with minimizing the size of these scars, creating the least noticeable appearance of then, and locating them in the least conspicuous areas possible. Often the scars will become undetectable to all but the most careful examination over the course of time.

How long is a typical recovery period for most operations?

Generally, 1-2 weeks for most procedures, although this varies from one patient to the next, as well as from one procedure to the next.

Will it be covered by my medical insurance?

In general, if it is cosmetic, your medical insurance will not cover the surgery or treatment. (See the questions regarding the difference between ‘plastic’ and ‘reconstructive’ surgeries for more on this topic).

How long does it take for an operation?

On an average, most surgeries take 2-3 hours in the operating room, with the most extensive of multiple procedures lasting several hours. Additional time is often required for preparation before, and rest & recovery time after the surgery itself, particularly when sedation or a general anesthetic is administered.

How long does it take to heal?

This varies greatly depending on the procedure. For small, non-invasive procedures, such as laser tattoo removal, or collagen therapy, patients are ready to return to normal activity immediately after treatment. For procedures like laser skin resurfacing, patients may be ready for most normal activities in 3-6 days, while more extensive surgeries such as abdominoplasty or extensive liposuction may require a more extended recovery periods. The body’s complete healing process takes longer than this initial recovery time, and may last from several week up to a year or more as incisions heal completely and tissues achieve their maximum recovery.

What are the risks?

All surgeries entail risks, such as bleeding, possible infection, etc. Please see the information on the specific surgery, or consult with a qualified surgeon for more detailed information.

What are the most common surgeries?

Among the most frequently performed surgeries are: breast augmentation surgery, rhinoplasty, facelift and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery).

Say goodbye to dark circles, say hello to under eye filler💉 ...

⭐️ The goal of an explant surgery, or breast implant removal surgery, is to remove breast implants from breast augmentation or breast reconstruction patients.
⭐️ During surgery, Dr. Sabry will routinely move the entire capsule which is made of scar tissue and any leaked silicone material in its entirety.
⭐️ In the process, Dr. Sabry will reshape the breast to its most natural form. If the breast is too small after removing the implant, he may also add fat grafting to achieve a fuller breast. This is a complex surgery and he will explore every
option to make sure that you are well informed and that you can achieve the best outcome possible.
