Father of modern plastic surgery
In the 20th century there is a crucial point in the development of Plastic Surgery, which is the First World War, due to the great number of patients who had to be reconstructed and rehabilitated, for whom simple amputation was not a solution to their problems. Around 1930, the integral organization of plastic surgery services in hospitals began worldwide, which included in their activities the management of wounds, burns, grafts, flaps, hand surgery, maxillofacial, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.

Plastic islands: What are plastic islands? Where are they? Why have they formed? Where does this plastic come from? Can it be eliminated? What effects does it have on the environment? These are some of the questions I have tried to answer in this post.
Plastic islands, also called garbage pach or garbage pach, among other names, are large areas in the ocean where garbage, fishing gear and other debris accumulate. They are formed by ocean currents called gyres.
The most famous (and largest) plastic island or patch is the Great Pacific garbage patch located midway between Hawaii and California. Although they are called “islands” or “patches” (pach) these are not islands floating on the surface but rather the debris spreads across the surface to the bottom of the ocean.
Non-native species. This drifting plastic debris can transport species from one place to another. If the species is invasive and can settle in the new habitat, it can compete with native species, altering the ecosystem.
What Indian people are like
When we talk about Plastic, Aesthetic or Reconstructive Surgery, we refer to the specialty of surgery whose objective is to restore anatomical integrity to the body, or to correct some physical alteration or defect.
This intervention, apparently very rudimentary, is nevertheless one of the bases of current plastic surgery. In fact, the sutures described by Susruta are similar to those used today.
In Roman civilization, the work of the surgeon who was able to disguise the “F and “K” scars was highly valued. These marks were engraved with a hot iron on slaves, fugitives or slanderers. Martial, a chronicler of the time, mentions in his writings Eros, a surgeon famous for removing such scars. In fact, during the Roman Empire, cosmetic surgery was so important that even Emperor Justinian II underwent rhinoplasty after losing his nose in battle.
Despite these notable exceptions, cosmetic surgery suffered a major setback during the Middle Ages. The fall of the Roman Empire and the rise of Christianity are some of the reasons for this stagnation. In fact, aesthetic interventions were forbidden in the 13th century by Pope Innocent III for being considered a blasphemous practice against the divine work.
