In order to fully understand the concept of Aesthetic or Cosmetic medicine it is first necessary to examine the internationally accepted definitions of Plastic or Reconstructive Surgery and then determine what aspects differentiate the Aesthetic or Cosmetic Doctor.
A plastic reconstructive surgeon is a specialized surgeon who is concerned with the restoration, construction, reconstruction, or improvement in the form, function, and appearance of body structures that are missing, defective, damaged, or misshapen. This encompasses both reconstructive surgery and aesthetic procedures.
Internationally aesthetic medicine is defined as “A branch of medicine focused on satisfying the aesthetic desires and goals of patients. This specialty is primarily focused on the pathophysiology of aging skin and adheres to scientific based procedures. Physicians practicing Aesthetic Medicine are trained in non-invasive treatment modalities and typically utilize combination treatments to meet the needs of the patient.”
Aesthetic or Cosmetic medicine is focused on the provision of the following core competencies by registered medical aestheticians and physicians.
- Light-based therapies (hair removal, laser treatments)
- Cosmetic injectables (Wrinkle reduction & soft tissue fillers)
- Skin rejuvenation (medical grade chemical peels, skin resurfacing, dermaplaning)
- Noninvasive body contouring
Cosmetic Medicine is a medical discipline, undertaken by registered medical practitioners, comprising a range of non-surgical procedures, to revise, enhance, treat or change the appearance, color, texture, structure or position of the cutaneous, subcutaneous tissues or associated structures using techniques which combine both the medical and aesthetic considerations for the patient.
