Interesting Field of Plastic Surgery

Once, plastic surgery was equated with just a facial nip and tuck. But not anymore. Now the whole body seems open to amendments from top to toe! Plastic Surgery is one of the most creative of all surgical specialties. As a matter of fact the word ‘plastic’ in plastic surgery has been derived from the ancient Greek word ‘plastikos’, which means ‘to mould’ ! With its two subdivisions, Aesthetic & Reconstructive, the art and craft of Plastic surgery is all about restoration of form and function. With our finesse and innovative techniques we cruise effortlessly from repairing a baby’s cleft lip to fixing a fractured face.
Aesthetic surgery offers an endless array of options to help improve one’s appearance and function. Most of the aesthetic surgeries as we practice today have an in-built element of functional correction, e.g. Eyelid lift can improve field of vision, Nose reshaping can improve breathing, Breast reduction surgery may relieve back pain and a Tummy tuck may help you exercise better in turn improving the overall well being. The boost in self esteem that comes along with aesthetic procedures goes a long way in improving our own and others perception of ourselves.
