What is general plastic surgery?

General plastic surgery is a surgical speciality that includes:

  • Reconstructive surgery involving secondary deformations after an accident, a congenital malformation, or a tumor ablation (ex. Breast cancer).

  • Cosmetic surgery to improve the appearances of an individual (without the presence of a pathology).

Among the most reoccurring types plastic surgeries, there exists rhinoplasty, breast, buttocks, and thigh surgeries. Surgeries of the abdominal wall, eyelids, arms, ears, and of the genitals are also found within this specialty.

Differences between plastic and cosmetic surgery

Reconstructive surgeries are carried out following an accident or illness and are covered by health insurances.

Cosmetic surgery concerns people in good health. This type of surgery allows modification of physical appearance of an individual for their psychological comfort. This type of operation is not covered by health insurance. In this effect all charges remain at the financial responsibility of the patient. However, certain surgical interventions such as breast hypertrophies, protruding ears, or specific types of abdominal plasties are reimbursed by some health insurances.

During the consultation, the surgeon considers the demand and informs the patient of eventual administrative steps to take with social security. Social security will then determine the level of reimbursement relative to the expected intervention.
