There was a time when belonging to a health club was an impressive status symbol. But it's a dawn of a new century, and these days, it is not unnatural for many people to visit a plastic surgeon for a "touch up on occasion." As medical technologies have boomed over the past two decades, plastic surgery has made incredible advantages in both reconstructing accidental injuries and congenital deformities and in helping erases the marks, wrinkles and sags of encroaching age. Whether it is fixing a portion of the body to make it look normal or improving the "normal" facet of the body to make it look even more aesthetically pleasing. The goal of the plastic surgeon is to help the patient to look and feel good about him or herself. It has seen an amazing growth in popularity in recent years.
