Although certain plastic surgery techniques have been in use for thousands of years, plastic surgery as a separate medical specialty, and in its present form, gained its popularity in the last century. It developed particularly after World War II, when the need for reconstructive surgery became more important than before, as did the interest in improved cosmetic appearance. In recent years, cosmetic surgery has gained a significant increase in demand and become ever more popular, not to mention it became affordable for most people.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and small imperfections, contrarily to popular belief, often make one’s appearance both beautiful and special. Every face and body is asymmetrical. The goal of esthetic surgery is to achieve a natural harmony and balance. Plastic surgery includes techniques that help to improve the appearance through surgical and medical treatments. This is largely about preserving, rejuvenating or enhancing a normal appearance.
Aging is a natural part of life. It is important that you understand aging factors before undergoing plastic surgery, which will affect the result. Smoking, stress, excessive sun exposure, obesity, alcohol and unhealthy diet are all factors that accelerate aging. These factors may increase the risks associated with surgical interventions and in particular decrease the chances of achieving good results.
Plastic surgery should not be seen as “lucky pills” to resolve individual problems. Nor is plastic surgery a slimming method through operations to remove fat or reduce breasts etc. Plastic surgery can however confer benefits in harmony with yourself and with your body, in that it can correct certain undesirable appearance-related aspects which may allow you to feel better about your body. If done professionally and with the appropriate intent, plastic surgery on the face or body can be a positive experience. It may also reduce or even eliminate physical, social and / or psychological discomfort. It is, therefor, important that you clarify your wishes and expectations and discuss these thoroughly with your plastic surgeon during the consultation at Oslo Plastic Surgery.
