Plastic surgery has developed into a very complex specialty over the past decades. Plastic surgeons operate from the top of the body to the bottom. We restore the body after trauma, tumors, and burns. We are nerve and hand surgeons; we replant limbs or replace body parts with bionic prostheses. We perform gender-affirmation surgeries and aim to give our patients a healthier and aesthetically pleasing body through regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. We implant customized implants and 3D-printed scaffolds to reach the best result for each individual patient in a targeted and personalized way. Thus, it can be said that plastic surgery, per se, is a super-personalized specialty compared to other disciplines.
This Special Issue is intended to highlight these personalized aspects in plastic surgery. It is intended to summarize personalized trends in plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and research in the field of wound healing. For this reason, this Special Issue is not reserved for plastic surgeons only. All medical and technical disciplines that support plastic surgery in its personalized medicine are welcome. This Special Issue is open for basic to clinical research as well as multi-disciplinary approaches.
We invite authors to contribute original research articles or reviews that are focused on, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Personalized trends in plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery;
- Personalized trends in technical and medical disciplines that support plastic surgery;
- Regenerative medicine: future trends;
- Tissue engineering: where do we stand at the moment? What does the future hold?
- Improvements in wound healing: a personalized approach;
- Biomaterials, implants and dressings: personalized and matching;
- Autologous fat, blood products and more: a personalized fountain of youth;
- The use of big data, artificial intelligence and machine learning in personalized plastic surgery;
- 3D printing;
- Augmented reality;
- Customized reconstruction.
The selection of manuscripts will be made on the basis of suitability, novelty and scientific merit by the Guest Editors and reviewers.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Personalized Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
