  • Plastic surgery is broadly classified into two categories: cosmetic enhancements and functionally reconstructive operations.
    Though cosmetic or aesthetic surgery is the best-known kind of plastic surgery, most plastic surgery is not cosmetic. Plastic surgery includes many types of reconstructive surgery which include hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns
  • Reconstructive plastic surgery is performed to correct functional impairments caused by burns; traumatic injuries, such as facial bone fractures and breaks; congenital abnormalities, such as cleft palates or cleft lips; developmental abnormalities; infection and disease; and cancer or tumors. Reconstructive plastic surgery is usually performed to improve function, but it may be done to approximate a normal appearance.
    The most common reconstructive procedures are tumor removal, laceration repair, scar repair and hand surgery. Some other common reconstructive surgical procedures include cleft lip and palate surgery, contracture surgery for burn survivors, and creating a new outer ear when one is congenitally absent.
    Plastic surgeons use microsurgery to transfer tissue for coverage of a defect when no local tissue is available. Free flaps of skin, muscle, bone, fat, or a combination may be removed from the body, moved to another site on the body, and reconnected to a blood supply by suturing arteries and veins as small as 1 to 2 millimeters in diameter.
  • Techniques and Procedures involved in Plastic urgery are:
    Endoscopic surgery. Endoscopic surgery is performed with an endoscope, a tubular probe that has a tiny camera and a bright light, which is inserted into a small cut in the skin. Images from the camera are transmitted back to a screen, which the surgeon watches while manipulating the endoscope inside the body. The endoscope is a device to assist the surgeon during surgical procedures. Instruments to actually perform the surgery are inserted through a different incision.
    Flap surgery. Flap surgery involves moving healthy, live tissue from one location of the body to another--often to areas that have lost skin, fat, muscle movement, and/or skeletal support.
    Laser technology. Lasers used in plastic surgery often provide for minimal bleeding, bruising, and scarring. There are many different types of lasers that may be used, depending on the purpose and location of the surgery to be performed.
    Tissue expansion. A tissue expansion is a surgical procedure that involves inserting a balloon-like device (called an expander) under the skin. The expander is then slowly filled with liquid to actually stretch and expand the skin over time. This serves the function of "growing" extra skin to repair nearby lost or damaged skin.
    Skin grafts. A skin graft may be used to cover skin that has been damaged and/or is missing. This surgical procedure involves removing healthy portions of skin from one part of the body to restore normal appearance and/or function to another part of the same body. 


  • 1. PLASTIC AND RECONTRUCTIVE SURGERY Dr Sumer Yadav Mch plastic and reconstructive surgeon
  • 2. What Is Plastic Surgery?    The name is taken from the Greek word “plastikos”, which means to form or mold! Plastic surgery is a special type of surgery that involves both a person's appearance and his or her ability to function. It intends to improve patients' appearance, selfimage, and confidence through both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures.

  • 4. There are two main kinds of plastic surgery: employed for medical 1. Reconstructive surgery - is usually purposes, and some common examples include: * cleft lip surgery * breast reconstruction surgery for those who have had mastectomy * contracture surgery for burn survivors 2. Cosmetic surgery - is done mostly for aesthetic enhancement and includes: - Different types of cosmetic surgery include: Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) * Liposuction * Breast lift * Cheek augmentation * Breast reduction/enlargement (augmentation mammaplasty) *

  • 32. “Through all of Sushruta’s flowery language, incantations and irrelevancies, there shines the unmistakable picture of a great surgeon. Undaunted by his failures, unimpressed by his successes, he sought the truth unceasingly and passed it on to those who followed. He attacked disease and deformity definitively, with reasoned and logical methods. When the path did not exist, he made one.” Frank McDowell
