Actually when field of Plastic surgery was evolving after world war II , the material of plastic was discovered and people were making different items from one single material by moulding it, like they were making cup, spoon and bowel from the same plastic. In the same way surgeons were moulding tissue and using it for making nose, ears, lips etc.etc. So basically it was the moulding property of plastic and this surgical specialty that earns its name to Plastic Surgery.
