Minimal Invasive Procedures
Medical aesthetic procedures are the methods that create favorable results in the patient group who do not require surgery yet, and allow the surgical process to be postponed to older ages. Sometimes, when used in combination with surgical methods, they allow for getting results that are much supperior than the results that can be obtained only with surgery.
About Reconstructive Surgery
Reconstructive surgeries performed by plastic surgeons are the surgical procedure done not for aesthetic concerns, but for the purpose of providing function and treating diseases. Operations in this group include a wide range of surgeries, from replantation of a amputated finger with microsurgery to fixing of the facial bone fracture resulting from a traffic accident, solving the problem of a baby with congenital cleft palate lip, or removing the neck tumor.
Although the most important feature that distinguishes humans from other living creatures is the ability to think, man needs his hands to make and use all the tools and equipment he designed with his power of thought. We have to use our hands, which are necessary to maintain our daily life independently, for almost every job. It is inevitable that such an organ that is used so much will be exposed to trauma and will age rapidly at later ages. In addition, it is inevitable that a lack of hands of a newborn baby will affect his whole life.
Throughout human history, injuries due to burns have always been and unfortunately will always be. With a better understanding of the pathophysiology of the burn, developing intensive care conditions, the availability of antibiotics and the increase in wound care opportunities, the chance of survival of burn patients has increased over the years. Parallel to this, the number of patients, requiring treatment of late sequela of burn have also increased.
Any injuries in which the integrity of the skin is impaired causes scar formation. In other words, , scar tissue formation is inevitable in every single case where the skin is injured in full thickness. The amount and quality of scar tissue, on the other hand, is determined by the wound care and treatment.
While the head length in an adult human is only one-eighth of the whole body, in a newborn baby this ratio is one-third. Despite this high rate, within the first year following birth, the brain volume almost triples its volume at birth. At the age of two, it reaches four times the birth volume. The volume of the brain reaches 50% of the adult brain volume in the first 6 months after birth and 85% up to the age of three. In the first three years when the brain grows so rapidly, if the skull bones fail to expand in parallel, the brain will be squeezed, resulting in the risk of mental retardation in advanced ages or even death of the infant.
