Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty concerned with the correction or restoration of form and function. Though cosmetic or aesthetic surgery is the best-known kind of plastic surgery, it includes many types of Reconstructive surgery, Hand surgery, Microsurgery, and the treatment of Burns.
The term "plastic" denotes sculpting, & is derived from the Greek word plastikē, meaning “the art of modelling” of malleable flesh. The history of plastic surgery in India dates back to Vedic times nearly 4000 years ago. Reconstructive surgery techniques were being carried out in India by 800 BC by Sushruta, the father of Surgery. British physicians acquired ancient techniques from India, & then the speciality was developed over there during the times of world wars.Enquire now!
