Although robotic surgery has been routinely established in other surgical disciplines, robotic technologies have been less readily adopted in plastic surgery. Despite a strong demand for innovation and cutting-edge technology in plastic surgery, most reconstructive procedures, including microsurgery, have continued to necessitate an open approach. Recent advances in robotics and artificial intelligence, however, are gaining momentum and have shown significant promise to improve patient care in plastic surgery. These next-generation surgical robots have the potential to enable surgeons to perform complex procedures with greater precision, flexibility, and control than previously possible with conventional techniques. Successful integration of robotic technologies into clinical practice in plastic surgery requires achieving key milestones, including implementing appropriate surgical education and garnering patient trust.
