Plastic surgery has been around for a very long time, but it only really started to develop for treatment for a wider range of people in the 19th Century. even then, the techniques used were nowhere near the standard that we expect nowadays. The methods of plastic surgery have advanced a great deal over the past few decades, and as people have in developed nations have a acquired more and more wealth, the plastic surgery industry has grown accordingly.
As it has become more widely available, the techniques used have also become cheaper, as more cost effective procedures and associated materials have been developed, so more and more people are willing to part with their hard earned cash. but what is it that has made so many people desire plastic surgery? The phenomena has become much less of a phenomena and more commonplace in recent years.
The pressure on people to look beautiful is now greater than ever, and what are considered imperfections are frowned upon a lot more, arguably, than they used to be. Of course, the image of the perfect face and body is one that is peddled by a plethora of magazines and television stations. If someone is famous at all for anything other than business or politics, then they are likely to be very attractive.
As well as general imperfections such as noses that are considered too large, people may decide to turn to cosmetic surgery in order to reduce the perceived ill effects of age. this is often focussed on loose facial skin around the chin – the solution to which might be described by some as a ‘tuck’. There may also be a desire to use cosmetic surgery to reduce the appearance of fine lines on the forehead and around the eyes. popular TV shows such as Nip/Tuck have arguably contributed to the glamorisation of plastic surgery.
To conclude, many people would agree that the ideal face and body surrounds us all the time in the form of bill boards, magazines, TV and cinema. this, combined with a dramatic increase in personal wealth of the average person, has lead to a steadily increasing number of people who have decided to take advantage of the more affordable cosmetic surgery options available; these procedures have now become far less risky than they used to be, which is why people are more and more willing to pay for the face they always wanted.
