Consultation—the meeting you will have with the surgeon to talk about a new issue.
Flap—a word for tissue moved to a new place, but still left with its own blood supply.
Pedicle—a word that refers to the blood supply of a flap. It can also refer to where the blood supply comes from for tissue left behind (as in a breast reduction).
Pexy—a word that means to lift or suspend (a breast lift is also called a mastopexy)
Augmentation—a word meaning to make larger, usually associated with breasts but can be used with other body parts (example: augmentation rhinoplasty)
Mammo—the root word referring to the breast. Mammoplasty=breast surgery
Graft—a word for tissue moved to a new place without a blood supply. This tissue relies on its new location for its blood supply (blood vessels have to grow into the grafted tissue for it to survive. Example: skin graft or fat graft).
Rhinoplasty—surgery to reshape the nose
Blepharoplasty—surgery to lift the eyelids (though, interestingly, not called a blepharopexy)
