Plastic and Reconstructive surgery has mainly two broad components, Reconstructive Surgery and Aesthetic or Cosmetic Surgery. Reconstructive plastic surgery is all about restoring function, form and appearance of the human body after illness or accidents. Cosmetic plastic surgery is primarily to alter the appearance of the body.The department of Plastic Surgery started functioning at BCMCH in March 2016 to restore and maintain the dignity of patients. We cover all aspects of wound healing and reconstruction after congenital, acquired and traumatic problems and elective cosmetic surgeries. We also provide round-the-clock emergency cover for soft tissue and limb injuries following trauma as well as burns. We work in collaboration with different departments to provide the best possible care for our patients.
