During the Second World War, plastic surgery became a medical specialty due to the integration of knowledge and technology and the improvement of medical needs.
In terms of its English literal terms, Plastic Surgery is based on the core idea of “sculpture” plasty; by sculpting various tissues and organs of the body, it achieves the effects of remedying defects, rebuilding functions, and beautifying the appearance, thereby enhancing the physiology of patients , Family, occupation, and social functions. Therefore, plastic surgery is not like other traditional specialties based on anatomical structure, nor is it limited to the boundaries of various tissues and organs.
Plastic surgeons must use various instruments and equipment flexibly and focus on the advancement of medical technology to ensure that the medical effect can fully cover the body, mind, and spirit of the patient. Plastic surgery currently has two attending physicians. In addition to medical services, plastic surgery is also actively engaged in basic research and teaching training.
