Head and Neck Surgery
Head and neck surgery is done to treat a wide range of different disorders, diseases and injuries. An otolaryngologist most often performs these types of surgeries. This is a doctor who specializes in the ears, nose and throat (ENT), as well as other structures of the neck and head. A few of the conditions that may require a head and neck surgery include severe head and neck injury, tonsillectomy (removal of the tonsils), cancer, cleft lip/palate and cochlear implants, among others.
Benefits of head and neck injury depend on the nature of the patient’s health. For instance, the benefits can be life-saving in cases where the surgeon repairs a damaged windpipe. In other cases, such as when a surgeon carries out a tonsillectomy, the benefit may be fewer sick days for the person undergoing the procedure. For cochlear implants, the benefits include a major improvement in the quality of life for someone who cannot hear anything or has severe hearing problems.
On the other hand, plastic surgery is typically done to improve one’s appearance. Besides improved aesthetics, plastic surgeons also help their patients realize many other potential benefits. A few of the benefits that one may stand to gain from a plastic surgery highlight the numerous benefits of undergoing such a procedure.
Looking good often translates to feeling good. And when you feel good, the chances are high that you’ll have increased confidence, which means a greater willingness to socially interact with others and try out new things.
Some plastic surgery procedures have the double advantage of improving looks as well as boosting physical health. For instance, Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping surgery) may refine the aesthetics of the nose and at the same time improve breathing. Bariatric surgery helps to correct the issue in patients with folds of excess skin. Removing the folds through plastic surgery prevents infections and rashes and gives the patients a new freedom of movement and boost in self-esteem.
Plastic surgery procedures can also enhance mental health. Some people enjoy a reduction in social anxiety after surgery. It’s not unusual for a patient who has undergone reconstructive surgery to take charge of their in a new way.
