Nowadays, people may think that plastic surgery is always about cosmetic surgery to pursue better look. But, this opinion is not entirely true; in fact, plastic surgery is not only for cosmetic purposes, but also for improving body functions. Plastic surgery generally is divided into reconstructive surgery and aesthetic surgery.
This topic was brought up in the RSPI - Pondok Indah press gathering, “Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, improving the quality of life”; last July in Hotel Indonesia Kempinski. "Broadly speaking, reconstructive plastic surgery aimed to restore functions, improve shape or appearance affected by congenital defects, accidents or disorders, up to a better level or within normal limits. As for aesthetic or cosmetic plastic surgery, it is aimed to develop less ideal body parts up to perfection." said Dr. Gentur Sudjatmiko, Sp.B, Sp.BP(K) of Rumah Sakit Pondok Indah-Pondok Indah.
Certain procedures of reconstructive surgery discussed includes skin transplant on burn cases or accidents, flap for nostril reconstruction, post facial surgery restoration (post tumor surgery on cheeks), skin disorders with scars, and also implants in post mastectomy cases or breast removal.
Meanwhile, aesthetic plastic surgery is divided into two areas, with or without surgery. Non surgical procedures included Botox, which is botulinum toxin injection for reducing or removing wrinkles on forehead, eyes and nose. Other non surgical procedure was injectable fillers, for filling in certain facial parts such as lips or nose on certain cases, also improving scars. Other procedures in RSPI - Pondok Indah were rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, liposuction and tummy tuck.
"Most Asians usually wanted to enhance their noses. Two procedures for this purpose involved the use of either solid silicone or cartilage implants. Nose correction was performed non surgically using fillers and stitches, although still limited," said dr. Teuku Adi Fitrian Sp.BP, known as dr. Tompi.
Dr. Elida Sari Siburian, Sp.BP talked about blepharoplasty. "Indonesians usually see the doctor with concerns of aging, drooping eyelids, eyebags and hidden folds." Moreover, liposuction was widely used for areas such as thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, sides, upper arms, back, chest, chins and neck; tummy tuck to tighten and flatten the abdomen was frequently used by women after delivery. Other cases were breast augmentation for enlarging the breast size with implants, breast reduction for reducing the breast size by removing fat, breast glands and skin, and also breast lift to lift and tighten the breast.
RSPI - Pondok Indah also introduced the recently improved Aesthetic Clinic & Breast Center. This clinic is supported by team of dedicated specialists in Oncology, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, and Radiology. The team of Oncology Surgery had developed a modern oncoplastic procedure, such as breast substitution with patient's fat tissue, remodelling the removed breast, not needing synthetic breast substitute.
Dr. Yanwar Hadiyanto, CEO of RS Pondok Indah Group said, "In line with RS Pondok Indah Group's mission to provide a holistic, consistent and integrated patient-centered care, we decided to enhance Aesthetic Clinic & Breast Center specialized care in RS Pondok Indah - Pondok Indah. With the increasing number of patients in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery cases, also breast cancer, therefore we expand, renew and step up the unit services.”

When hospital as a public healthcare service managed its sanitation poorly, it would be a source of contagion for both ill patients and healthy customers inhouse.
Therefore, a hospital need to perform certain means for prevention and care regarding the environmental deterioration as a result of its daily routines. RSPI – Pondok Indah persistently improve the environmental management system in Units of Environment Management and Units of Environment Watch.
This year, RSPI – Pondok Indah attained the Very Satisfactory Result in Management of Environment DKI Jakarta. This award was given by the Governor himself, Mr. Fauzi Bowo.
Beforehand, Local Comittee of Environment Management (BPLHD) DKI Jakarta conducted a verification in RSPI – Pondok Indah.

In addition, Liquid Waste Management was one of the most important criterias. Hospital waste is all waste generated from a hospital when not properly managed became the source of health disorders in and outside the hospital. The composition of hazardous waste could result in risk factors such as disease contagion and environment contamination.
Therefore, proper waste management or handling should be performed, to make sure that hospital waste is disposed according to applicable standard waste quality.

Jakarta, 8 May 2012 – Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in the world, and the fifth most common cause of death in the world. In Indonesia, Global Burden of Cancer reported the ratio of breast cancer was 26 in 100.000 women. Ironically, survey of Yayasan Kesehatan Payudara Jakarta, or Jakarta Breast Health Foundation, in 2005 showed that 80 percent of the population were not aware of the importance of early breast screening.
The high number of breast cancer cases gave reason for RS Pondok Indah Group, elements of the society, several companies with concerns of earlier detection of breast cancer, to bring about breast cancer awareness movement. Some of the public figures involved were Andien Aisyah, Andra Alodita, Becky Tumewu, Melinda Babyanna, Miund, Ligwina Hananto, Paquita Widjaja, and Stella Rissa; they positively grabbed public’s attention especially women, to better care for their breast health. This movement titled Kampanye Delapan (Deteksi Berkala Payudara Anda), or Campaign Eight (Regular Screening for Your Breast), aimed to raise public awareness of the importance of early detection of breast cancer. Every month on the eighth, women were reminded of self breast examination or SADARI.
Keeping in mind the increasing number of cases, with the assured initiatives, RS Pondok Indah Group facilitated Kampanye Delapan by spreading this information to public. “RS Pondok Indah Group took initiatives to remind women for regular self breast examination. As an institution that cares for your health, we proudly support the movement. Breast cancer patients are increasing in Indonesia, and also in our hospital. Sadly, new patients only came when they were in their late stages. Therefore, again we need to emphasize the importance of early screening as it is the prevention for women. The sooner the breast cancer was detected, the better chances the recovery,” said dr. Yanwar Hadiyanto, CEO RS Pondok Indah Group.
“If you have symptoms of swelling in the whole or parts of breasts, skin irritation, tenderness in the breast or the nipple, retracted nipple, nipple or breast skin turning red, scaly or thick, nipple discharge other than breast milk, and lump in the armpit, ask for immediate examination. Although not all of the lumps are cancer, but we need to be alert,” explained Dr. Sonar Sonny Panigoro, SpB.Onk of Rumah Sakit Pondok Indah – Pondok Indah.
“The American Cancer Society (ACS) encouraged women over 20 years performed self breast examination every month. Women over 30 years were encouraged to do routine screening at least once a year. Women in their 40s with higher risks of breast cancer, with unhealthy life style, should do routine screening, at least once a year. That is, after 5 years, screening is recommended once a year; between 3-5 years, every 6 month and below 3 years every 3 month. Breast cancer early detection comes with options of mammography, breast ultrasound, MRI and 3D Sonomammogram,” said Dr. Adji Saptogino, Sp.Rad of RS Pondok Indah – Pondok Indah.
Several methods of examination which were widely known includes self breast examination, clinical breast examination, mammography, breast ultrasound, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The latest method of breast cancer early detection is 3D Sonomammogram – a state of the art 3D ultrasound imaging to gather, analyze and report detailed anatomy volume of breast.
“This equipment is able to give a comprehensive 3D breast imaging, with a relatively brief period of 15 minutes. The imaging included a whole breast coronal anatomy – which could not be delivered by conventional ultrasonography method – enabled us to learn more details of breast tissue anatomy and architecture,” said Dr. Rahmi Alfiah Nur Alam, SpRad of RS Pondok Indah – Puri Indah.
With 3D Sonomammogram, RS Pondok Indah Group can provide more accurate and detailed diagnosis for public. RS Pondok Indah – Pondok Indah also has a specialty clinic for patients with breast disorders and complaints, that is Aesthetic, Plastic, Breast Clinic. This clinic has developed a modern surgery techniques with oncoplastic approach, such as breast substitution from patient’s body fat, so that patient can still have their breast intact, not needing an artificial breast.
This clinic also provided breast cancer screening with a non-radioactive media examination such as High Definition-MRI 1,5 Tesla, using magnetic fields and radiowave for a multi projection imaging. HD-MRI 1,5 Tesla is also used for post-mastectomy care and breast reconstructive surgery (including silicone implant). By using HD-MRI 1,5 Tesla, there will be no more pain as it is experienced in conventional mammography.
This clinic is well equipped with other up to date facilities such as Mammography, USG, Stereotactile Diagnostics, also minimally invasive surgery with mammotome, bringing a more thorough, accurate and prompt breast tumor and cyst surgery.
As shown in Indonesia health profile in the year 2008 by the Ministry of Health, breast cancer is the first of ten cancer in hospital inpatients from 2004 to 2007. The high number of breast cancer in Indonesia, also in RS Pondok Indah Group, urged RS Pondok Indah Group to hold a seminar titled “Current Update Detection and Treatment of Breast Cancer” on last Tuesday, 1 May 2012.
This seminar was attended by more than 150 doctors and nurses from RS Pondok Indah – Pondok Indah and RS Pondok Indah – Puri Indah, discussing the latest technology and management of breast cancer.
“Women tends to have a higher risk for breast cancer than men, since they go through changes in estrogen and progesterone hormones. Women at higher risk also are someone with family history or personal history of breast cancer, long term post menopausal hormonal therapy, previous history of chest radiotherapy at younger age, pregnancy at older age, and not breastfeeding. In addition, other factors that increased the risk of breast cancer are unhealthy lifestyle such as smoking, alcohol consumption and lack of exercise,” said Dr. Sonar Sonny Panigoro, SpB.Onk of Rumah Sakit Pondok Indah – Pondok Indah. This seminar also talked about several examination method to identify breast cancer such as Clinical Breast Examination to identify any abnormalities in size, shape, breast skin or nipple changes; Mammography with low-grade-X-ray to look inside the breast bringing out black and white images on film which is interpreted by a radiologist; Breast Ultrasound with sound wave to scan breast then projected on screen in black and white; Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) using magnetic fields and radiowave instead of X-ray for a more detailed imaging.
“Besides the above methods, we have the latest breast cancer early detection method, that is 3D Sonomammogram – an imaging equipment with a state of the art 3D ultrasound technology to gather, analyze and report a comprehensive breast volume anatomy,” said Dr. Angela Umali Crisostomo, M.D, President, Diagnostic Breast Imaging Society of the Philippines, one of the guest speaker in the seminar.
Other quality of 3D Sonomammogram is the result can be semi-automatically and comprehensively recorded in Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS®) for clinical purposes. BI-RADS® is a classification of American College of Radiology (ACR) for reporting mammography screenings.
