Plastic surgery. Is it rising to a level that exceeds good s
Transcript of Plastic surgery. Is it rising to a level that exceeds good s
Reconstructive: Birth Defects or damage caused by injuries.
Cosmetic: For self esteem purposes
Over the past two years cosmetic plastic surgeries have increased 2.5%.
The reason for this increase is that people want to take good selfies so they get their nose, boobs, butt, mouth, hands, and face "fixed."
The price you pay.
•Complications related to anesthesia, including pneumonia, blood clots and, rarely, death
•Infection at the incision site, which may worsen scarring and require additional surgery
•Fluid build up under the skin
•Mild bleeding, which may require another surgical procedure, or bleeding significant enough to require a transfusion
•Obvious scarring or skin breakdown, which occurs when healing skin separates from healthy skin and must be removed surgically
•Numbness and tingling from nerve damage, which may be permanent
The first recorded “nose job” is found in ancient Indian Sanskrit texts (600 B.C.). Physicians would reconstruct noses by cutting skin from either the cheek or forehead, twisting the skin side out over a leaf of the appropriate size, and sewing the skin into place. Two polished wooden tubes would be inserted into the nostrils to keep the air passage open during healing.
In Gangnam, South Korea there are over 500 plastic surgery clinics in the city.
And the winner is.... South Korea
