When someone has either a: 1.Wound:any wound on the hand or face or a complicated wound anywhere 2.deficient function: of limbs, or externally visible structure in head-face-neck region or trunk or 3.cosmetic improvement needed.
Plastic surgery is a super-specialty branch of medicine. the name is derived from the Greek word 'plasticos', meaning 'to mould'. A plastic surgeon uses principles of reconstructive surgery to 'mould' tissues of the body (as needed) to achieve optimal results.
These principles are mandatory when dealing with complicated wounds, corrections of externally visible deformity & functional disability and enhancement in the form or beauty of the human body. Such surgical procedures need sound planning, delicate technique, gentle tissue handling and predictable results.
Though the scope of Plastic & Reconstructive surgery is vast, it's principles are most essential in procedures involving the face (Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Surgery), Hand (Microvascular & Hand Surgery) or procedures on nerves-blood vessels in any tissue (Microsurgery). Surgical procedures on structures with delicate movement such as Tendons, small joints (Hand), fingers or eyelids are enormously benefited by use of these techniques.

This blog is a collection of my thoughts as a Plastic Surgeon, whether related to Medicine OR Otherwise.
One of the purposes of this blog is designed to help potential patients of reconstructive or cosmetic surgery learn about treatment options and outcomes.
Many misconceptions regarding Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery prevent the benefits of this modern science from reaching the common man. We hope to correct these wrong notions, show how these procedures are accessible, affordable and safe. All this can be done with the highest level of safety and results at par with international standards.
Rather than high society and elite, it is the common man whose life can change thanks to the benefits of modern Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery. This is the positive change we want to see in society.
