Plastic Surgery

Department Overview

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of
the human body. It can be divided into two categories. The first is reconstructive surgery which
includes restoration of birth defects like cleft lip, palate & facial anomalies, craniofacial surgery,
hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns. The other is cosmetic or aesthetic
surgery. While reconstructive surgery aims to reconstruct a part of the body or improve its
functioning, cosmetic surgery aims at improving the appearance of it.
