Cosmetic surgery has increased dramatically in popularity over the past 10 years. With this increase, attitudes have changed as well. Fewer people are growing old gracefully, while more and more are accepting the cosmetic surgery alternative.
The most popular surgical procedures among top celebrities to regular people, both in men and women are breast augmentation, liposuction, nose reshaping (rhinoplasty), eyelid surgery and tummy tuck, topping the charts. But how did it all start?
The first modern cosmetic Rhinoplasty was performed in 1923, followed by the first public facelift in 1931.
Cosmetic surgery has gone prime time, with the American Broadcasting Corporation’s shows, “Extreme Makeover.” In episodes of the program, participants chosen from the ranks of hundreds of thousands of willing “patients” undergo multiple surgical enhancements before a national audience of millions of viewers. Other, similar offerings have included Fox TV’s “The Swan and MTV’s “ I want a Famous Face, “ on which young men and women undergo cosmetic “enhancements to make them look like stars such as Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lopez and even Elvis Presley. And speaking of celebrities Madonna and Cher are among the celebrities well known for their fondness for cosmetic surgery.
And now with the advancement in technology that apart from liposuction and augmentation treatments, today’s plastic surgeons also provide options for correcting certain signs of aging such as crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead wrinkles without surgery because these procedures are done over a period of one or more short office visits, these mini-treatments are sometimes referred to as “lunchtime” procedures which include laser hair removal, fat and collagen injections, laser vein removal and last but not the least Botox.
