|Plastic Surgery by Dr. Charu Sharma New Delhi
Plastic Surgery is derived from Greek word “plastikos” which means “to mould“.
Plastic surgery Plastic surgery helps to mould any disfigured part of the body. Any physical disfigurement, whether from birth or acquired later, leaves behind a mental and emotional scar too. Till a few years back, this curse of ugliness was considered an unavoidable life-long stigma. But in today’s modern era, unattractiveness cannot be accepted as a curse and aged look is no longer considered as a sign of wisdom.

But unfortunately most of us remain ignorant to what wonders the art of cosmetic surgery can do.

The response to various slimming programmers, capsules and oils etc. is very unpredictable.
The benefits , if and when present , are usually transient as one can’t stick to such stringent programmers for a lifetime resulting in rebound weight gain , which may even be worse than the original shape. On the other hand , liposuction’s principle of extraction of adipose (fat) tissue from the body offers one-time cure by eliminating the very source of obesity.
