World Plastic Surgery Day (15th July 2016)

Plastic surgery is not just about making changes to someone’s face and body image, as commonly perceived by people. Plastic Surgery originated in ancient India when saint surgeon Shusruta (600 BC) started reconstruting noses with forehead skin using an amazingly ingenious technique to help those whose noses were damaged by trauma etc. This technique is still used in modern plastic surgery to reconstruct noses. Plastic surgery has two broad divisions- reconstructive surgery and aesthetic surgery. Reconstructive surgery is designed to repair a damaged area to bring it closer to normal form and function. Cosmetic surgery is designed to make you from the normal to the beautiful. Plastic surgery therefore play a very important role in catering to the human needs at various levels by improving the form & function of human body and bringing normalcy and joy to the patient’s life.
