Reconstructive surgery is a type of plastic surgery that is intended to restore function and form to abnormalities of the body by means of specialised surgery. Abnormality may be due to an accident, trauma, disease or a birth defect.
Aesthetic plastic surgery is used mainly to improve the patient’s appearance through medical and surgical techniques. It focuses on the aesthetics of beauty and an improvement in ones looks.
In ancient times Plastic Surgery operations were performed by different surgeons across the globe. Nasal reconstruction and rhinoplasty was performed by Sushruta by 800 BC in India. British Physicians traveled to India to see rhinoplasties being performed by Indian methods. Reports on Indian rhinoplasty performed by a Kumar Vaidya were published in the Gentleman’s Magazine in 1794.
