It is nothing but a surgical specialty having the restoration or alteration of the body. There have been several celebrities across the world who have changed dramatically after the plastic surgery.

Who invented plastic surgery?

Surgery was not a new subject to ancient people. Plastic Surgery was majorly invented in India. Sushruta, an ancient surgeon made a huge contribution to medical science in the field of plastic and cataract surgery back in the 6th century.

Indian scientist Sushruta Samhita performed the first surgery. At that time, they used flints (dazzling grey or black stone resembles glass) as surgical instruments and the teeth of fish and sharp thorns were other important instruments required to perform a surgery.

Even the plastic surgery was carried out by Indians, as early as 2000 BCE. The surgeon Sushruta Samhita played a major role in contributing to this technique. And today, modern surgery is only possible owing to the discovery of anaesthesia and prevention of body infection.
