Ethical or not? What is cosmetic surgery? What is cosmetic surgery?
Cosmetic surgery is the enhancement of facial parts. (Reshaping of the facial features) What is the history of
cosmetic surgery? Egyptians did not practice plastic surgery on the living but they used the dead. Egyptians had the skills to perform similar surgical procedures on the living but they did not. During the Middle Ages, surgery in general was deemed to be pagan and sinful because the spilling of blood by a surgeon and the power the surgeon held over the patient. How does it affect
people's religions? What are the risks
of cosmetic surgery? What are the benefits of

your information?
Is your information creditable? Certain religions prohibit the altering of your physical appearance by means such as cosmetic surgery. Some religions argue that their "Creator" or "Maker" wanted to "make" them that way and that is the way that they should stay. Others do not specify yes or no. Religions that say no Certain risks of cosmetic surgery are: Thank you for watching! Religions that do not specify Christianity-do not
draw attention to your looks Islam-no alteration

serious injury Catholic-no importance

any alteration unless for
injury Buddhism-make decisions
that help everyone Benefits of Cosmetic Surgery ; Example ---> Rhinoplasty, a form of plastic surgery performed on the nose. It is for patients who are unhappy with the shape or size of their nose. There are two ways of doing Rhinoplasty. One way is closed, where the surgeon does incisions within the nostrils. The other way is opened, where it requires a incision across the columella, that way it is easier to access the nasal tissue. This surgery takes about one to two hours long. Although this surgery helps people with their looks, there are a few risks of Rhinoplasty such as burst blood vessels that can lead to red spots and small scars on the underside of the nose. But one of the most important risk is a patient being unhappy with the results. This is one of the many examples of cosmetic surgery. Before After Bleeding and Infections-Like any other type of
surgery, cosmetic surgery carries the risk of
bleeding and infection. Implant rupture-Cosmetic surgery that involves implants carry a risk of implant rupture. Implants sometimes burst, causing fluid leakage and aesthetic disfiguration. Emotional problems-Even if cosmetic surgery goes well, patients sometimes experience negative emotions following their surgery. Adjustment to the new body contours take time. Indian Sanskrit texts describe the procedures to repair noses and ears that were lost as punishment for crimes or in a battle they were in. There was a method known as the "Indian method of Rhinoplasty" and was to keep the air passages open during healing, they would put two polished wooden tubes in the nostrils. The first century B.C., Romans were also practicing advanced plastic surgery. One of the most popular was Circumcision Removal. Surgeons would often operate on gladiators who had noses and ears chopped off and on foreigners who would try to fit in Roman society. Plastic surgeons today recognize Italian Gasparo Tagliacozzi who is recognized as the "father of modern plastic surgery" and is the first author of a plastic surgery textbook. Plastic surgery would re-appear in Europe in 1794 when a British surgeon witnessed an Indian Bricklayer repairing the nose of a british cattle driver. Then british surgeons imported the concept to northern Europe. greater self-confidence and sense of well-being fast patient recovery and natural appearing results Plastic surgery benefits both young and old psychologically, physically and emotionally.
