Plastic surgery has come a long way since the days of extreme celebrity facelifts. It is defined as a branch specializing in repair and reconstruction of missing or damaged tissue and skin, usually because of surgery, illness, injury or an abnormality present from birth.
Once considered a luxury among older, upper-class women, cosmetic surgery is now common among average, middle-class–men and women, keenly looking for subtle improvements in appearance. A demographic shift in the arena of plastic surgery can be seen, with men often looking out for surgery or fillers to have a healthier youthful appearance.
NM Hospital provides services and facilities, which are at par with international standards and are well equipped to perform all kinds of aesthetic and reconstructive surgeries.
All efforts are made to ensure availability of the latest technology, expertise in patient care and good infrastructure.

Skin grafts – A healthy piece of skin is transferred to another area of the body where the skin is missing or damaged.
Tissue expansion – This procedure allows the body to ‘grow’ extra skin by stretching the surrounding tissue.
Flap surgery –The transfer of a living piece of tissue from one area of the body to another, along with its blood vessel.
Apart from these mainstream techniques, plastic surgeons use a wide range of other methods, such as fat transfer or grafting (where fat is removed from one area and inserted in another area, usually to correct unevenness), vacuum closure (where suction is applied to a wound through a sterile piece of foam to draw out fluid and encourage healing), camouflage make-up or cream and prosthetic devices, such as artificial limbs.
Plastic surgery can be used to repair:
Abnormalities that have existed from birth, such as a cleft lip and palate, webbed fingers and birthmarks
Areas damaged by the removal of cancerous tissue, such as from the face or breast, extensive burns or other serious injuries.
Plastic surgery can also help a person recover their self-esteem and confidence after the surgical procedure.
