Q: What is the difference between reconstructive plastic surgery and cosmetic plastic surgery?
Reconstructive plastic surgery is performed to correct body and facial issues caused by birth defects, injury, or disease. Usually, the goal of reconstructive plastic surgery is to improve body function. However, reconstructive plastic surgery may also be done to create a more normal appearance and improve self-esteem.
Cosmetic surgery addresses aesthetics intended to improve self-confidence and appearance. These techniques may be performed to counteract the natural aging process, recontour the body and breasts, or reshape facial structures.
At Sadeghi Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sadeghi offers body contouring procedures, breast enhancement procedures, facial enhancement procedures, and reconstructive breast procedures.
Q: What does it mean for a surgeon to be board certified?
Earning board certification is one of many ways a surgeon can prove their skills and knowledge. Every certifying board has its own requirements to measure a physician’s education and experience in their chosen fields. Board certification assures that a doctor has undergone formal training in the fundamentals of surgery.
Dr. Sadeghi holds double board certifications as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon.
