In the modern days, most of the individuals have gone under the knife to reconstruct their facial features and increase their beauty. Some are not satisfied with how their nose looks. What do they do? They reconstruct it. Are lips not full enough? Go to a plastic surgeon, and behold! You have fuller lips. So, what is this plastic surgery that people are talking about? The term ‘plastic,’ comes from the Greek word ‘plastike’ which means the flesh can be modeled, sculpted or reshaped into the needs of the person who is going under the knife.
Some say that it was an Indian, named Sushruta who lived in the 6th century BC was the one who contributed to this method to treat people. And in the modern days, it is being done to suit the needs and whims of individuals who are willing to pay.
Wrinkles and shriveled skins are frowned upon, and what better way to not look old? Get yourself injected with botox. Then some people spend the exorbitant amount of money, to go under the knife, and look like their favorite celebrities. There were reports about an individual who spends $100,000 to look like Justin Beiber. People are much more concerned about the outer appearances and forgetting to love themselves as they are. Instead, they want to prolong looking young and beautiful with artificial enhancers. And plastic surgery is not cheap. In the year 2016 more than $16 billion was spent on cosmetic surgery in the USA alone. Imagine what the number would be if the whole world were taken into consideration. People ask that why is the popularity of plastic surgery on the rise? But they don’t know that they are somewhat responsible for it. We are surrounded by a society that looks and judges us on the hollow term of being beautiful. And hence, to appease this kind of an atrocious society, we are spending more and more to justify ourselves on this fake scale of consumerism.
In the midst of trying to become beautiful, we forget that there are people who might have suffered some horrific disfiguration and needs to change their appearance and they too account for the popularity in the rise of plastic surgery.
But just by going under the knife once isn’t enough and one has to maintain that appearance, and hence multiple plastic surgery procedures are also done to appease the customer.
