Plastic Surgery is the speciality, which is dedicated to improving or restoring the appearance and/or function of numerous areas of the body. The word “Plastic” is derived from the Greek word “Plastikos” meaning to mould or give shape. Plastic surgery can broadly be separated into two categories: Reconstructive surgery to restore the form and function that has been lost through accident, disease or birth defect, and Cosmetic Surgery.
