Which is the right age for each surgery?

Younger generations are already conscious regarding what modern aesthetic, reconstructive and cosmetic plastic surgery can offer to bring about beauty and result in rejuvenation.People of all ages have needs in terms of their appearance. Every person interested can be easily categorized into six groups. Sampling will mention a few cases such as:

1. Infancy: 0-2 years (birth marks and other defects)

2. Preschool age: 4-7 years (protruding ears)

3 . Teenagers: 16 to 20 years (beautification for easy acceptance by peers)

4 . Adults: 20-40 years (signs of fatigue and forgotten beauty needs)

5 . Maturity age: 40-55 years (signs of wear)

6 .  65-95 years (time to do something for themselves)

It is therefore entirely understandable that plastic aesthetic surgery has no age restriction since our goal is for the concerned to feel better about hersef/himself.

It is defined clinically by the presence of a rubber or firm mass extending  from the nipples. Gynaecomastia should be differentiated from pseudogynaecomastia which is characterized by fat deposition without glandular proliferation (lipomastia).

Firstly it is important to understand your breast. It has two types of tissue, which can be categorized into two kinds –glandular tissue which is dense and firm and also fatty tissue which is soft. The  ratio of these both tissues varies from person to person.  If the glandular tissue is overboard then the excess of it can be surgically removed with a scalpel. On the other hand if the fatty tissue is excessive, liposuction may be needed. At most times, a combination of both may be required.

This surgery is carried out under sedation and local anesthesia. The result is immediate along with temporary scarring, swelling and bruising which fades out over the next weeks. Pressure garments and pain medication will be prescribed and a healthy lifestyle advised.
