“The innovations made by plastic surgeons have improved care and outcomes in areas such as burns, orthopedic trauma, hand and nerve injuries, cleft lip and palate, breast cancer, and wound healing. Notably, Dr. Joseph Murray, a plastic surgeon, performed the first kidney transplant in 1954, further highlighting the broad impact of the specialty. Plastic surgeons approach their work by analyzing deformities or problems, striving to restore the “beautiful normal” as the benchmark. Looking to the future, advances in regenerative medicine and immunology offer the potential to regrow missing body parts or transplant entire organs, a reality that is already unfolding.“
