„Zukunft braucht Herkunft“ ist ein Motto, das auf die Plastische und Ästhetische Chirurgie ganz besonders intestine zutrifft. Die Möglichkeiten des Fachgebiets nehmen rasant zu und stehen wie nie im Lichte der Öffentlichkeit, besonders ihr ästhetischer Zweig. Um bei den Entwicklungen dieses modernen Faches die Orientierung zu behalten, sollten sich Plastische und Ästhetische Chirurgen mit der Herkunft Ihres Fachgebiets auseinander setzen. Wo hat die Plastische und Ästhetische Chirurgie Ihre Wurzeln, die weiter in die Zeit zurückreichen, als vielleicht gedacht? Welchen Ereignissen, Personen und Institutionen hat es die Plastische und Ästhetische Chirurgie zu verdanken, sich als eigenes Fachgebiet im Kanon der medizinischen Fächer durchzusetzen und respektiert zu werden? Welche ethischen Grundsätze sollten Praktiker für ihre tägliche Arbeit aus der Geschichte des Faches ableiten, damit die Plastische und Ästhetische Chirurgie weiterhin stabil auf den vier Säulen Rekonstruktion, Verbrennungschirurgie, Handchirurgie und Ästhetik steht und nicht etwa zu einer reinen „Schönheitschirurgie“ wird? Auch für Fachärzte aus angrenzenden Bereichen und für den an Medizingeschichte interessierten Laien ist dieser Abstecher in die Entwicklung der Plastischen und Ästhetischen Chirurgie mit vielen historischen Abbildungen eine spannende Lektüre.
