Plastic surgery has been developing very dynamically. Started in ancient Egypt, for the past 2,000 years it has been a very important branch of medicine enabling to restore the lost form and function of human body. The above concerns both birth defects and deformities caused by major surgeries or traumas.
Equally frequently, plastic surgery procedures are performed for aesthetic reasons and are motivated by the patients’ subjective needs.
Plastic surgery has a considerable impact not only on the physical health of the patients but also, equally importantly, on their well-being, often enabling them to regain normal life and self-confidence.
