- Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery
Plastic surgery is a vast specialty, which derives its name from the Greek term PLASTIKOS, meaning to ‘mould’. Thus, essentially in contrast to other surgical specialties, Plastic surgery deals with redistribution or transfer of tissues from one part of the body to the other and also from one person to another with the advent of Tissue Allotransplantation. The sub-specialties are Aesthetic surgery, Hand surgery, Trauma & Cancer reconstruction, Cleft & Craniofacial surgery, Burn Care.
The growth of Plastic Surgery has largely been spurred by technological advancement, skill improvement and overall economic development in society. This is evident by the large number of patients opting for Aesthetic surgery now. However, this by no means undermines the importance of Reconstructive Surgery in Trauma and Cancer patients, which not only restores anatomy, but also initiates psychosocial and occupational rehabilitation.
