Find out why you should visit Picasso Plastic Surgery in Singapore.
Plastic surgery is the functional, structural and aesthetic restoration of defects and deformities of the human body. The term plastic surgery arises from the Greek word plastikos, which means “to mold” or “to form”.
Modern plastic surgery is based on two broad themes: reconstruction of disease states, and aesthetic enhancement of the normal form. It revolves around the physical restoration to achieve a normal human form, or enhancement of it. Reconstructive and aesthetic surgery is a continuum of the same spectrum and utilizes overlapping skillsets and includes treatments using surgical and non-surgical methods.
Plastic surgery was described as early as 600 BCE by ancient Indian medical practitioner Sushruta, who took interest in reconstruction of nasal defects occurring in thieves who suffered nasal amputation as punishment for their deeds. Reconstructive surgery experienced a quantum leap following World War I, where many war casualties were treated for facial burn injuries and Dr Harold Gillies pioneered many reconstructive surgery techniques that restored facial form and function in many war victims.
Aesthetic treatments and aesthetic surgery were natural advancements arising from anatomical knowledge and technological innovations that subsequently arose.
Today, plastic surgeons are at the forefront of aesthetic and reconstructive procedures, both surgical and non-surgical. It is a diverse and fascinating specialty that evolves with cultural perceptions of normalcy and attractiveness. Subspecialty interest within plastic surgery include aesthetic surgery, congenital craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, reconstructive surgery and craniofacial trauma.
The term “plastic surgeon” is regulated by the Medical Registration Act in Singapore. Bona fide plastic surgeons are required to enter, and complete a 7-year postgraduate training program in accredited hospitals in Singapore. Within Singapore, plastic surgery is a highly competitive specialty and only 2 to 5 candidates are selected nationwide to enter each year.
Plastic surgery training involves training in basic surgical principles and their safety, surgical apprenticeship where trainees are supervised through increasingly technically complex procedures, audits of their surgeries and academic publications, and finally culminating in a board examination where candidates are evaluated for their patient assessment, proposed management and aftercare. Because of the significant overlap between aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, plastic surgery is the only specialty that incorporates both in their specialty training.
Following board certification, these postgraduate doctors are formally recognized as specialists and plastic surgeons. Elite plastic surgeons further enhance their experience and skill by participating in fellowships and observerships with world-renowned plastic surgeons in their centers of excellence.
