Department of Burn & Plastic Surgery


Burn & Plastic Surgery

Plastic Surgery has two branches, cosmetic surgery and reconstructive plastic surgery.

Cosmetic surgery is concerned with improving the aesthetic appearance of a person, while plastic surgery may include this, or just the reconstruction (reconstructive surgery).

Reconstructive plastic surgery is concerned with improving function; however, it may also involve trying to approximate normal appearance, but that is not its primary function. Reconstruction plastic surgery is often referred as simply reconstructive surgery. It refers to rebuilding structures that were normal, but damaged by injury or diseases. Example include skin grafting for burns and repair of hand injuries.
