Aiming to improve a person’s appearance, the medical sector has developed a type of plastic surgery which is very effective but should be done with proper caution. The popularity rate of this medical procedure has been increasing every year which is quite clear from the medical reports. There is an increase of 3 percent in the cosmetic surgeries carried out in the United States in one year. This procedure is done for almost all parts of the body but as this procedure is permanent so you need to think more before you opt for cosmetic surgery. You need to consult a perfect practitioner and should be filled up with deep motivation. In some of the cases, the doctor recommends seeking counseling if they feel that the problem cannot be solved by surgery, or if a patient is showing some signs of BDD (Body Dysmorphic Disorder). The best part of this surgery is that the treated organs function properly and so this is elective surgery. The surgery is practiced by doctors from a variety of medical fields which also include plastic surgeons.
