COSMETIC SURGERY FaceCenterLA - Facial Rejuvenation, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
Cosmetic Surgery is a specialized medical discipline that focuses primarily on the restoration or correction of form and function of the human body. Often times, a patient suffers from an injury or accident which distorts their appearance and surgical techniques are required for reconstruction. Other times, a patient simply is seeking to improve their overall appearance and may want to reshape or reform a particular area of their face or body.
Cosmetic Surgery can be traced back to the year 800 B.C. where Indian surgeons pioneered the first rhinoplasty procedures. The process was recorded in Sanskrit and then translated to Arabic. From the Middle East, the techniques of cosmetic surgery were carried on to the West and into Europe. Now, the industry has profits reaching well into the billions. In 2006, the number of Americans receiving cosmetic surgery procedures reached 11 million. It has been rising steadily since then, and in European and Asian countries the same trend can be seen. The desire to undergo cosmetic surgery is one that crosses both racial and ethnic lines.
