Abstract

In an era in which evidence-based medicine (EBM) has become an intricate aspect of the practice and advancement of the field of medicine, plastic surgery must aim to sustain its role as a pioneer division. It is critical that plastic surgeons understand the significance of EBM and, more importantly, its application to everyday practice. We aimed to review a comprehensive systemic approach to gather high-quality data that help support clinical decision making and assist in determining best available treatment. In addition, we provide evidence supporting the role of EBM in the field of plastic surgery.
