Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. Plastic surgery can be divided into two main categories: reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. Reconstructive surgery is performed to restore function and normal appearance, and correct deformities created by birth defects, trauma, or medical conditions including cancer. Examples include cleft lip and palate repair, breast reconstruction following a lumpectomy or mastectomy for breast cancer, and reconstructive surgery after burn injuries.
Cosmetic surgery is performed to enhance overall cosmetic appearance by reshaping and adjusting normal anatomy to make it visually more appealing. Breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and facelift are popular examples of cosmetic surgery procedures. Department of Plastic Surgery at Sohana Hospital Mohali specializes both in reconstructive and cosmetic surgeries. We make efforts to understand the aesthetic needs of each patient and then proceed to fulfill them. Patient safety and satisfaction is our main goal. The team adopts high standards of surgical expertise to deliver the patients with superior quality care to raise their body image and delight the spirit.
