The Four Basic Steps in Plastic Surgery- #3

February 22nd, 2010

 

Step 3: Sculpting.

Following dissection, the underlying tissues are revealed and the sculpting is performed according to the surgical plan designed for the desired changes.   I firmly believe that consistent natural results can only be achieved through an aesthetic understanding of normal human form.

Unnatural results are usually related to a surgeon’s distorted aesthetic.   This distorted look has become the frequent topic of our pop culture and the Hollywood media.   Surgical “before and after” photos are an excellent way to judge a surgeon’s aesthetic eye and the likelihood of a particular look following cosmetic surgery.

Step 2: Dissection.

Once the skin has been divided, access to the underlying tissues is possible.   Some degree of dissection is necessary to proceed with the next step of surgery.   Dissection is simply the division or separation of underlying structures.   Either a combination of skin and fat is released or skin, fat and muscle are released.   It all depends on the type of cosmetic surgery.   Liposuction releases skin and fat from the underlying fat and muscle.   Breast enlargement releases skin, fat, breast tissue and muscle from ribs and muscle.
