The History and Future of Cosmetic Surgery

The History and Future of Cosmetic SurgeryPlastic and cosmetic surgery has been practiced by surgeons since 800 BC. A surgery procedure, now known as rhinoplasty, was performed to restore noses of people in India. But Plastic surgery didn't become popular until 20th century when surgeons used this procedure to restore physical deformities caused by war. Cosmetic surgery, a procedure that's reshapes and enhances perfectly normal body is consequential to plastic surgery. The wars caused too much damaged that it increased the innovation of plastic surgery and this gave the window of opportunity for cosmetic to surgery to boom in the industry. The surgeon's realized that aside from fixing deformities, they could also enhance beauty through surgery. They then developed body enhancement techniques such as breast augmentation, liposuction, and tummy tuck, in addition to facial surgeries.

It has a broad field and is sometimes confused over reconstructive surgery. Reconstructive surgery is used to correct congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, or the effects of disease like breast reduction, cleft palate surgery and birthmark removal, whilst it isn't much associated with necessary reconstruction. It's more about improving looks for aesthetic purposes such as rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, and liposuction.

Cosmetic surgery is more and more popular between both, women and men. I'm pro about this, because I also underwent a nose surgery in Toronto by Dr. Jerome Edelstein... I hated my nose and with thanks to this procedure now I'm feeling great in my body... it was something really useful! :D
