The first American plastic surgeon was John Peter Mettauer, who, in 1827, performed the first cleft palate operation with instruments that he designed himself. In 1845, Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach wrote a comprehensive text on rhinoplasty, titled Operative Chirurgie, and introduced the concept of reoperation to improve the cosmetic appearance of the reconstructed nose.
But in some cases, paying for an anesthesiologist is money well spent. It can either give the patient increased peace of mind, or provide practical benefits. For example, if you have high blood pressure, are diabetic, or have a chronic illness, there is a higher risk of blood loss, and you might be better off with an anesthesiologist. Be prepared to discuss your medical history in great detail during your consultation so your surgeon can recommend the best means of administering anesthesia.

Treatments for the plastic repair of a broken nose are first mentioned in the Edwin Smith Papyrus,[7] a transcription of an Ancient Egyptian medical text, one of the oldest known surgical treatises, dated to the Old Kingdom from 3000 to 2500 BC.[8] Reconstructive surgery techniques were being carried out in India by 800 BC.[9] Sushruta was a physician who made important contributions to the field of plastic and cataract surgery in 6th century BC.[10] The medical works of both Sushruta and Charaka, originally in Sanskrit, were translated into the Arabic language during the Abbasid Caliphate in 750 AD.[11] The Arabic translations made their way into Europe via intermediaries.[11] In Italy, the Branca family[12] of Sicily and Gaspare Tagliacozzi (Bologna) became familiar with the techniques of Sushruta.[11]

While there is no universally accepted definition, a “mini tummy tuck” is most commonly described as a tummy tuck that has no scar around the belly button and a shorter low, horizontal incision than traditional tummy tucks. A mini tuck removes loose skin from below your belly button instead of your whole stomach. It’s a popular way to address post-pregnancy issues like sagging skin, stretch marks, or C-section scars.
