About Plastic Surgery


The term "plastic surgery" was used for the first time by Eduard Zeis for the title of his book "Handbuch der Plastische Surgery" in 1838. Plastic surgery regroups 2 kinds of procedures; reconstructive and aesthetic. The first was mainly developed during different wars in Europe during the 19th century and especially in the First World War. The second was born in the 30s but was mainly developed in the 60s and 70s. It has been blooming for the last 30 years. Reconstructive surgery aims at the restoration of body's form and function. Various techniques are used following different algorithms, and Dr. Kitsios believes that these techniques should be adapted for each case and patient. Aesthetic surgery is used on normal parts of the body to improve their appearence and enhance the patient's self-esteem. It can greatly influence the patient's life, therefore Dr. Kitsios pays a lot of attention in the right choice of a procedure and patient's security.
