It offers state of the art tertiary level care in all disciplines of Plastic Surgery. The department has 8 outstanding consultants covering all aspects of Plastic Surgery such as Aesthetic Surgery, Craniofacial surgery, Hand Surgery, Reconstructive Microsurgery, Burns and General Plastic Surgery.
Plastic surgery is a multi-faceted specialty that combines form, function, technique, and principle.
Cosmetic plastic is the aspect of surgery in which concentration and interest are focused on the restoration and improvement of forms as well as function. The problems that plastic surgeons encounter may result from aging, congenital defect, trauma, and prior surgical procedure that have a profound effect on human emotion or psychological structure. Aesthetic plastic surgery, though admittedly done on occasion to rehabilitate a particular part of the body, is mainly performed to rehabilitate the entire person.
Aesthetic plastic surgery involves techniques intended for the “enhancement” of appearance through surgical and medical techniques, and is specifically concerned with maintaining normal appearance, restoring it, or enhancing it beyond the average level toward some aesthetic ideal.
Apart from the clinical work the department also is successfully running the DNB course in Plastic Surgery, which is a Super speciality qualification awarded by the National Board of Examination, New Delhi.
