about departments

Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery.

Our department began working with the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Dr. Namık Kemal BARAN at 1982 conjunction with the establishment of the Faculty of Medicine at Gazi University. When Dr. Cemalettin ÇELEBİ was appointed in the faculty, he began studying specialization in the clinic. With the completion of the new building of Gazi University Faculty of Medicine Hospital in 1997, our Department moved to its place on the 14th floor of Block C, and acquired a ward with 26 beds.
In 2004, a branch of hand surgery services was established, headed by Dr. Osman LATİFOĞLU.

Plastic Surgery is all of the surgeries performed to change the appearance of the person. The word "plastic" is derived from the ancient Greek "plasticos" meaning "formation". Plastic surgery has been applied for centuries in the Indian and Roman civilizations.


The aim of our department to deal with the repair of various malformations such as congenital malformations, trauma, tumors or defects caused by infections, as well as reshaping the natural structures of the body for appearance and increasing self-confidence in a person.

Your Questions About Our Department


  • What is Plastic surgery / Reconstructive Surgery?

Plastic surgery is applied to reshape the natural structures of the body for a person’s appearance and self-confidence. But it cannot go back in time where it is not possible to create a new person from you who can only contribute positively to your appearance and well-being. On the other hand, reconstructive surgery covers operations that are performed in order to give a near-normal appearance and function to abnormal structures that occur in the body due to congenital and developmental disorders, trauma, infection, tumors or other diseases.


  • Who Is Suitable and Who Is Not for Plastic Surgery?

    People who know what they want and why they want it.
    People who are realistic about the results of the surgery and do not expect dramatic changes in their lives.
    People who want to satisfy themselves more than others.
    People who are self-confident and love themselves, who do not think that they are like others and who know that surgery will only change appearance and not personality, are suitable candidates for plastic surgery.
    Unrealistic people who expect a radical change in their personality, work, social life and marriage.
    People who are considering surgery to satisfy others people than themselves.
    People who are not confident in themselves are not suitable candidates for plastic surgery.
