Plastic surgery is a surgical speciality involving restoration, reconstruction or alteration of human body. It can be divided into two main categories: reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. The Sri Sathya Sai Sarla Memorial Hospital will offer plastic surgery in the future through a team of visiting surgeons and physicians.
RECONSTRUCTIVE procedures are carried out to correct defects on body or face, like cleft lip and palate, or rebuilding breast after breast cancer surgery.
COSMETIC procedures are done to alter a part of the body that a person is not satisfied with, like reshaping the nose, removing a pocket of fat from specific spots of the body (liposuction), etc.
