    Special Issue Description

    Dear Collegues,

    The phrase "plastic surgery," which comes from the Greek verb "plastikos," which means "to mold," has been used to refer to many procedures. The need for cosmetic surgery has increased because the beauty standard has been lifted due to the involvement of internet culture. People constantly want to look better, so they spend money on cosmetic procedures that highlight their traits or simply just adhere to the most recent beauty trends.
    Rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, tummy tucks, and Brazilian buttlifts continue to be the most popular cosmetic procedures. Early forms of plastic surgery, which involves modifying human tissue for reconstructive or cosmetic goals, included tribal customs of disking lips, expanding earlobes, tying feet, filing teeth, and tattooing skin. Cultural expectations and objectives have influenced plastic surgery throughout its history, and the fact that so many Western nations are more at ease with it now implies that they see it as a way for both men and women to enhance themselves.
    Making significant or modest modifications to one's face and body to obtain their ideal appearance is now simpler than ever before.
    Innovation has changed the history of plastic surgery since the time of Sushruta. Plastic surgeons anticipated changes in plastic surgery. The majority of experts agree that more aesthetic nonsurgical operations will be performed in the future, which is the most likely scenario for plastic surgery. The future of plastic surgery is also being impacted by technology. TruSculpt Flex is one innovative new technology that is incredibly exciting.
    With TruSculpt Flex, a patient can truly grow their muscles while laying on a table. By strengthening the muscles beneath the operated areas, plastic surgeons may soon be able to improve the outcomes of their arm lifts, thigh lifts, liposuction treatments, and abdominoplasties.
    Various incredible jobs are carried out in the reconstructive sector, and reconstructive breast surgery following cancer is one such example. We wish that plastic technology would continue to Progress in such beneficial ways. Millions of patients with congenital malformations (such as cleft lip and cleft palate), deforming wounds, animal bites, and severe burn injuries, as well as those needing reconstruction following surgery for malignancy or other chronic conditions, benefit from the work of plastic and reconstructive surgeons every year.
    By examining how new trends in medicine may affect plastic surgery and plastic surgeons, this special issue focuses on different aspects of plastic surgery, including advancements in techniques from the past to the future.
