Reconstruction of the face and body defects due to birth disorders, disease, trauma and burns is done through plastic surgery which is a surgical specialty. When an individual has plastic surgery it usually takes six months or more to heal thus lots of patience is required to be practiced. The types of plastic surgery include; burn repair surgery, hand surgery, scar revision surgery, congenital defect repair, breast reconstruction and lower extremity reconstruction. Training is required after a postgraduate residency program so as to become a plastic surgeon. There are two types of training which are an integrated residency training and an independent five year residency program.
A three year course of general surgery and another three year of plastic surgery is combined in the integrated residency training program. A five year course in general surgery that is followed by a three year course in plastic surgery residency program is identified as the independent training program. As a portion of a surgeon’s training, cosmetic surgery is included in the residency training program.
