Since the first five basic principles of Plastic Surgery were stated by Ambroise Pare in 1564, and revised to thirty-three by Millard in 1986, the importance and application of these principles has not changed, although their application may vary from patient to patient. The very fact that these principles are applicable even today indicates the depth of understanding and foresightedness of those who formulated these principles. In spite of newer developments in plastic surgery, these principles have stood the test of time and have proved useful even today. This article discusses these principles and elucidates their relevance in the context of the practice of current plastic surgery.
