Modern aesthetic surgery: facial surgery
The pursuit of beauty is quite natural. A beautiful face determines both success with the opposite sex, and rapid progress along the career ladder, and ease in any communication. But nature is not generous to everyone – someone has a disproportionately long nose, another has bulging ears. A person may be disfigured by an accident, an accident. And of course, beauty is eaten up by age: wrinkles, bags under the eyes, sagging cheeks. All these disadvantages can be corrected to varying degrees with the help of aesthetic surgery – plastic and reconstructive. The first corrects natural imperfections, the second helps to get rid of the effects of injury or illness.
