Everyone wants to belong. No!. . . Everyone needs to belong!. . . . No man is an island. Whether you have been deformed from birth or whether you have been deformed by a traumatic injury or due to illness or surgery or due to medical reasons, you do not want this stigma to stay with you. You want to be accepted by by your family, by the community, by society. You want to have friends. That is why reconstructive surgery is not just putting the edges of the wound together; it iso not just closing or covering the wound, . . . it has to be aesthetically acceptable. It has to have some semblance of normalcy. Thus, reconstructive surgery has to have beauty! It has to be functional!
