Plastic surgery involves the reconstruction and restoration of the human body. Plastic surgery is broad and thus divided into two categories namely; reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery.
Though the procedure has not gained much popularity compared to countries such as USA, UK etc, it is slowly rising to fame.
However, just like any other surgery, the procedure has to be carried out by a medical professional in order to avoid botched results and worse of death. So for those planning to get their bodywork done, there are some few safe procedures to follow in order to know whether one is suitable or not.

Speaking to comedian Dr Kingori on the Wicked Edition, Dr Kenneth Aluora who is among the few 20 plastic surgeons in the country talks of the importance of good timing when it comes to the procedure.
From consultation to getting ready for the surgery, time is of the essence and for him, the doctor-patient relationship works strictly on the allocated time.
Before getting the procedure done, whether you want a liposuction procedure to reduce body fat or enhance your body shape or a nose job done, the first and most important step starts with a consultation.
For Dr Kenneth Aluora who works at the Kenyatta National Hospital, the consultation includes taking the patient through the risks, benefits and outcomes of the surgery.

After that, the next step is left for the patient to go discuss with family and friends on whether to still go ahead with the procedure or not.
“So for us you come and ask what about this option, what about this option, eeh, which option is best for me, am I the right candidate for this?” talks Dr Aluora on what goes on during consultation.
One may think that the whole procedure just like most businesses or rather activities must have been greatly affected by the global pandemic hit but for the doctor, they have witnessed more clients during this period than any other time.
