MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- For those planning to undergo plastic surgery, the comfort and care your receive post-operation are nearly as important as the surgical procedure itself.
Plastic surgery includes both aesthetic and reconstructive surgical procedures. Aesthetic surgeries are designed to improve the appearance of facial and bodily features, while reconstructive procedures are typically performed to address the physical result of illness, trauma or tumor surgery. Patients who undergo the surgery often experience psychological as well as physical improvement.
Northern Westchester Hospital offers a number of innovative techniques for plastic surgery patients. For example, in some breast cancer reconstruction procedures, surgeons are able to use the body’s own fatty tissue taken from the abdomen or thigh during surgery, eliminating a need for synthetic implants. In fact, most women having breast cancer surgery at NWH choose to have breast reconstruction at the same time, an approach at NWH called “Aesthetic Oncology.”
Each person’s reasons for having plastic surgery are unique; needs and expectations should be addressed before, during and after surgery.
