Plastic surgery procedures have been performed for well over 2000 years. Early plastic surgery practitioners worked to repair noses (rhinoplasty), burns, and other disfigurations with reconstructive procedures like skin grafts (Source: Wikipedia). Remarkably, these early methods formed the foundation for cosmetic surgery practices still used in clinics and hospitals around the world. The tools have changed, even the results are quite different, but the wish—the dream of plastic surgery remains the same: Make it better. Make it whole. Fix it. The evolution of beauty is happening right now.
Plastic Surgery: The Evolution of Beauty
From 2000 to 2004, the number of reconstructive, cosmetic and aesthetic procedures performed in the United States grew 24% (Source: American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2005). And with phenomenal advances in technology, more people have access to plastic surgery than ever before because plastic surgery itself is more affordable than ever. No longer the exclusive domain of wealthy people living a 'Hollywood' lifestyle, simpler, minimally-invasive cosmetic techniques like chemical peels, botox, and laser treatments have become a regular part of many beauty regimes. Botox® use itself grew an astounding 280% from 2000 to 2004 (Source: American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 2005).
