  1. What is Plastic Surgery?
    Plastic Surgery is a surgical sub-specialty dedicated to the restoration of patients' facial and body parts injured or disfigured by trauma, burns, disease, developmental abnormalities or congenital defects. It also covers Cosmetic Surgery (also known as Aesthetic Surgery) which deals with improving specific features of patients as desired by them by means of such operations as facelift, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation etc.

     

  2. Does Plastic Surgery use "plastic"?
    No. The term "plastic" as used in Plastic Surgery is derived from the Greek word "plastikos" and the Latin word "plasticere" both of which means "to mould". It does not refer to the actual materials used in the course of the surgery itself. Normally, the Plastic Surgeon will make use of the patient's own tissues from another location of the body to achieve the required results.

     

  3. What's the difference between Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery?
    As we have already seen, Plastic Surgery is normally done to restore a disfigured part of the body or to improve the "looks" of a body part. In the former case, Plastic Surgery serves primarily to improve the health of the patient or the functioning of an organ, and it is considered a medical necessity. This type of surgery may or may not improve the patient's "looks", but is intended only to correct a physical abnormality caused by a birth defect, disease or tumor, trauma, or infection. For example, a patient may undergo corrective rhinoplasty to improve the flow of air through the nose, and such procedures are classified as Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. On the other hand, as in the latter case, if Plastic Surgery is performed with the primary aim of improving the "looks" of a patient, it is not considered a medical necessity, and therefore is classified as Cosmetic Plastic Surgery. Cosmetic plastic surgery is performed to enhance or change a healthy, normal, functioning part of the body based solely on the patient's desire for physical improvement.

     

  4. Which parts of the body are most amenable to perform Plastic Surgery on?
    Most commonly performed Plastic Surgery procedures relate to the face, including the nose, eyes, ears, chin, lips, cheekbones, forehead and the neck. Additionally, Plastic Surgery is also performed on the breasts, thighs, buttocks, hips and abdomen.

     

  5. Do you have patients' "before" and "after" photographs?
    We certainly do, but as a matter of policy we do not display them in public. A few of our patients have consented to make available their photographs to prospective patients within our premises. During the time of your personal consultation you may go through these.

     

  6. How expensive is Plastic Surgery?
    The costs involved depend on the type of procedure one wishes to undergo. Also, having your Cosmetic Plastic Surgery done in Egypt can significantly reduce the costs involved. Needless to say, Cosmetic Plastic Surgery is generally more expensive than Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. In many cases of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery for needy patients the costs are consciously kept to the bare minimum so as to make it affordable to a larger number of patients.

     

  7. Does Plastic Surgery leave any visible scarring?
    As with any cut or incision made on the skin, there will be a scar left behind as part of the normal healing process. However, with special training and the extensive experience a good Plastic Surgeon will be able to minimize the size of the scars and locate them in the least conspicuous areas possible.

     

  8. Are Plastic Surgery operations particularly painful?
    Each Plastic Surgery procedure carries with it a different degree of pain and discomfort. Normally, small, non-invasive procedures would only involve a topical anesthetic, whereas minor invasive surgeries may require local anesthetic or local combined with sedation. In complex and multiple procedures, general anesthesia is usually used. These different methods of anesthetizing help minimize the patient's pain and discomfort during plastic surgery. Post-operatively, patients are prescribed pain medications which help minimize discomfort.

     

  9. Where will my cosmetic surgery take place?
    The medical experience and surgical skills of our reconstructive and cosmetic surgeons allow them access to the best facilities in Egypt. After meeting your surgeon to determine which procedure(s) are best for you, we will arrange a date with a nearby outpatient day surgery center or hospital that best fits your schedule. You will arrive approximately two hours early to prepare for your surgery and then stay a few hours following the procedure. Most procedures do not require an overnight stay, but please arrange for a friend or family member to take your home or your hotel after surgery.

     

  10. How long will my recovery take?
    Like every other medical procedure, healing time varies according to the type of surgery chosen and your body's natural healing abilities. Recovery times are generally longer for major surgeries, including abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) and facelifts, but you can expect to be active in 7 to 14 days. The plastic surgeons and staff at Dr.Fathy Clinic In Egypt understand that plastic and/or reconstructive surgery is a life-changing event that does not simply end in the operating room. Dr.Fathy is dedicated to helping you through every stage of your healing process so you can feel good about the decision you have made.

     

  11. What accommodations are available if I'm from out-of-town or Egypt?
    Our office is conveniently located near several hotels which frequently provide accommodation for our out-of-town patients. You can contact our travel agent to find very good hotel in reasonable rates.

     

  12. How long does the Plastic Surgery operation take?
    Generally speaking, most common procedures of Plastic Surgery take about two to Four hours in the operating room. However, complex and multiple procedures could take several hours.

     

  13. Can you explain the procedure called Rhinoplasty?
    Rhinoplasty is the name given to the corrective procedure to improve the flow of air through the nose or to reshape the nose so as to improve its appearance.

     

  14. What is a Face Lift?
    Facial aging is a condition caused by the natural aging process, heredity, and lifestyle choices and generally leads to excessive amounts of skin in the facial area. A face lift tightens and lifts the redundant skin in the face and neck by dissecting the skin into the cheeks and neck allowing it to be mobilized upward producing a tightening and smoothing result.

     

  15. What are the common procedures performed on the breasts?
    Breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction are the three common procedures performed on the breasts. Breast augmentation is a procedure used to surgically enhance the size of a small breast. The degree of enlargement is based on the anatomy of the patient's body and saline-filled implants are placed usually underneath the muscle layer of the patient's chest. The implants may be placed in different positions depending on the physical make-up of the patient and her breasts and the implant may be introduced through three different incisions: below the breast, around the nipple, or via the arm pit. A breast lift is used when the patient is happy with the size of her breasts, but the breast gland has begun to droop due to aging or pregnancy. Various techniques are employed to accomplish a breast lift.
    Breast reduction is designed to make overly large breasts smaller in size. Such patients may have multiple secondary symptoms including neck and shoulder pain, back pain, paresthesia of the arms
