Sushruta: Father of Plastic Surgery

Champaneria MC, Workman AD, Gupta SC.

Today, we have high standard of plastic and reconstructive surgery. but it has gone through many milestones. The first earliest milestone is found in Ayurveda, the science of life since ancient Indian era. Shalyatantra, the main surgical branch of Ayurveda, which is a constant source of surgical knowledge till now. Various plastic and reconstructive surgical procedures are mentioned in Shalyatantra[surgery].These operative procedures were being performed by the great ancient Indian surgeon and the father of plastic surgery Acharya Sushrut. He has described various methods of repair of wonds, rhinoplasty and earoplasty. The principles and methods of plastic surgery which were described by Sushruta, are being adopted and practiced by todays modern surgeons.Unfortunately, the subsequent Ayueveda surgeons could not practise, develop and modify the art and skills of plastic surgery.
