Physiotherapy in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Physiotherapy in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Plastic and reconstructive surgery is defined as a set of medical procedures with the objective of repairing and/or reconstructing parts of the body. These procedures can have an aesthetic origin or some associated pathology, such as breast reconstruction in a patient with breast cancer.

Thus, physical therapyin plastic and reconstructive surgery is useful for patients who wish to correct or improve some aspect of their body through surgery, they must realize that with it, there can be side effects and therefore physical therapy has great importance in the recovery from plastic surgery.

Note: It is important to remember that each person is unique and recovery times should not be compared. Each person has their own physiological rhythm, which must be respected to ensure the best results without associated complications.
