More and more people are accepting and its affordability confirms its value and need. The number of aesthetic surgery procedures performed has increased to a great level. Earlier cosmetic surgery was only confined to the health and well-being of the patient, such as reconstructing a dislodged eye, skin-grafting for serious burns, repairing a broken nose and treating a birthmark across the face. But now the surgery is intended to correct all the dysfunctional areas of the body for enhancing the overall appearance.
