Plastic Surgery is derived from the Greek word plastikos meaning to mould or to give shape. Hence it is commonly perceived that plastic surgery is all about cosmetic surgery alone. But in reality the field of Plastic Surgery is so broad that it caters to all regions of the body and across all age groups from infants to old age. It has mainly two broad components, Reconstructive plastic surgery and Aesthetic or Cosmetic plastic surgery.
Reconstructive plastic surgery is all about restoring function, form and appearance to the human body after illness or accidents.
Cosmetic plastic surgery is primarily to change or alter the appearance of the body.
The department of Plastic Surgery started functioning at BCMCH from March 2016 onwards. The work covers all aspects of wound healing and reconstruction after congenital, acquired and traumatic problems and elective cosmetic surgeries. We also have round the clock emergency workload of soft tissue and limb injuries following trauma as well as burns. We also work with a very wider range of teams from other specialities like Orthopaedics, Oncosurgeons, Maxillofacial surgeons, ENT surgeons, and Gynaecologists.
