In the following sentence how do we recognize whether the following sentence is written in a passive voice?

In this operation, new blood vessels are inserted to bypass blocked vessels.

This sentence includes the passive voice verb formation are inserted.. However do you ditinguish when "is/are" is used to form a passive verb construction?

For e.g: She is beautiful. Here the singular form of "are" is used and the sentence is active.

So how do we know when the usage of "is/are" causes a passive or active voice?

Passive voice are object-verb-subject

Objects are optional in active voice. Subjects are optional in the passive.
