   History of Medicine: Ancient Indian Nose Jobs & the Origins of Plastic Surgery





                     DIVISION OF PLASTIC SURGERY

Think plastic surgery is a modern luxury? Think again.

It turns out that the roots of cosmetic and recons-

tructive procedures go back more than 2500 years.


During the 6th Century BCE, an Indian physician named Sushruta

– widely regarded in India as the ‘father of surgery’ – wrote one of

the world’s earliest works on medicine and surgery.

The Sushruta Samhita documented the etiology of more than

1,100 diseases, the use of hundreds of medicinal plants,

and instructions for performing scores of surgical procedures –

including three types of skin grafts and reconstruction of the nose.

Skin grafts entail transplanting pieces of skin from one part of the body to another. Sushruta’s treatise provides the first written record of a forehead flap rhinoplasty, a technique still used today, which a full-thickness piece of skin from the forehead is used to reconstruct a nose. At that time, patients in need of that procedure generally included those who had lost their noses as punishment for theft or adultery.

Today, surgeons use skin grafts to restore areas that have lost protective layers of tissue due to trauma, infection, burns, as well as to restore areas where surgical intervention has created a loss of skin, as can happen with melanoma removal. Some grafts include blood vessels and muscle, such as in reconstructive breast surgery. Amazingly, these techniques are all explained in the Sushruta Samhita.

container and consumed first thing in the morning; it would provide

health benefits. 

But they recommended against storing milk and yogurt in the copper

vessels.  Instead, they advised to store them in earthen pots. 


Ever wonder why they recommended to keep water in copper pots,

but not milk or yogurt? Some one did a little scientific study on this matter.

Here is what they found:


Copper has an inherent property to kill bacteria; it does not matter

whether those bacteria are good (helpful) or bad. 

Bacteria in water are not good, so storing water in copper pots will kill

the bacteria and make water pure, and healthful to drink.

On the other hand, yogurt is made by good bacteria.  

If milk is stored in copper, the good bacteria will be killed 

and milk would not form into yogurt. Therefore, it is not a good idea

to store milk or yogurt in a copper vessel. Instead, yogurt should be stored

in earthen pots, because earthen pots help bacteria grow and make better,      Sages of India who researched and invented Ayurveda 

thicker (more curds) more healthful yogurt.                                                                    (Science of Life) thousands of years ago in India.
