The psychology of beauty: what are the right reasons for plastic surgery?
Cosmetic surgery has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people around the world. So we ask:
What are the main reasons for plastic surgery?
While most cosmetic surgery procedures today are performed for purely aesthetic reasons, many cosmetic surgeries are performed to correct disfigurement due to an accident or birth defect, and many cosmetic surgeries are performed to correct disfigurement due to an accident or birth defect.
Or it may be an attempt to maintain a youthful appearance, with many Hollywood stars resorting to plastic surgery in order to maintain their outward beauty. Plastic surgery has become so popular that even some teenagers want plastic surgery as a birthday or Christmas present.
This "look-good-at-any-price" craze has gone from celebrities to the masses.
One thing that is often overlooked by many people is that there are risks that need to be seriously considered before going under the knife, as a facelift or tummy tuck is a complex and potentially dangerous medical procedure.
Plastic surgery is not just for beauty buffs. Many people in the United States undergo cosmetic procedures after accidents and illnesses that leave them disfigured or maimed. It is a cliché to assume that all people who undergo plastic surgery are beauty-conscious or vain.
Certainly, there are many men and women who undergo cosmetic procedures just to change their otherwise healthy bodies, but there are also many people who undergo surgical procedures to repair damage caused by illness or injury.
People all over the world seek out good plastic surgeons to satisfy their respective beauty desires. However, some of the surgical procedures are performed for medical reasons and are known as reconstructive surgeries.
Regardless of the reason for undergoing these procedures, the number of surgeries is increasing worldwide.
Nowadays, more men than ever are opting to go under the knife (and the needle!), and it's not uncommon to find them in a cosmetic surgery clinic.
Plastic surgery is a broad surgical speciality that requires at least five years of residency training after graduating from medical school. The word plastics in plastic surgery comes from the word plastikos, which in Greek means "to shape", and got that name because plastic surgery generally involves manipulating and moving tissues to achieve a specific purpose.
Basically, plastic surgery can be divided into reconstructive and cosmetic surgery, and each of these can be further subdivided into numerous subspecialties that are beyond the scope of this article alone.

I recently discovered that "Sushruta" was the "father of plastic surgery" because the techniques and instruments of plastic surgery have been known historically since about 500 BC. Although there are references to plastic surgery in ancient texts, there is much less knowledge of plastic surgery among laymen and medical students. In the modern world, plastic surgery developed about 80 years ago, during World War II, when it was greatly developed and improved to help wounded soldiers, sailors and airmen returning from war events and accidents. Now the scope of plastic surgery is growing due to technological innovation and infinite imagination.
