Why A Plastic Surgeon?
Why a Plastic Surgeon and Not a Gynecologist?
If you are considering a procedure such as labiaplasty or mons reduction, you may be considering your trusted gynecologist for the procedure. However, before you make the decision to have surgery performed, consider the difference between a plastic surgeon and a gynecologist.
A gynecologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of issues related to female reproductive organs. This includes routine examinations, diagnosis and surgical or non-surgical treatments of diseases in women.
Plastic Surgeon Training
A plastic surgeon is a physician who specializes in reshaping, removing, and augmenting tissue, and may focus on just certain types of surgery. A plastic surgeon does not usually deal with diagnosing illnesses or medical conditions, but performs surgery either for aesthetic improvement or for reconstruction of specific body areas. This includes paying attention to nerve structure and blood supply to ensure that reshaped body parts retain full function.
Plastic Surgeon vs. Gynecologist
A gynecologist is ideal if you have certain genital concerns. However, if you are interested in a surgical procedure to enhance your body shape and appearance, a plastic surgeon is more suited for it. Labiaplasty, monsplasty and clitoral hood surgeries come within the expertise of a plastic surgeon for the following reasons:
- Education – a plastic surgeon is specifically trained in changing the appearance of physical features and improving aesthetics.
- Experience – a plastic surgeon has experience in the reshaping and rearranging of tissues.
- Expertise – By virtue of education and training in techniques of plastic surgery, a plastic surgeon possesses the necessary expertise to deliver optimum outcomes for genital aesthetic surgeries.
Even among plastic surgeons there is variation in specialized knowledge and experience. For best results, look for a plastic surgeon with experience in the specific surgical procedure that you are seeking, whether it be clitoral hood reduction, clitoral hood refinement, or monsplasty.
