Although once taboo and seen as reserved only for the wealthy and famous, plastic surgery in Orlando is growing in popularity every day as a safe and easy way to gain confidence in one’s appearance, and make physical changes for the better. Plastic surgery is a specialty area of surgery involving making changes to the structure, form, and function of the body. Although plastic surgery can be performed for reconstructive purposes after trauma, injury, or a physical birth defect, cosmetic surgery can also be performed in order to create an aesthetically pleasing appearance and to boost self confidence. Modern plastic surgery was developed by Sir Harold Gillies, an otolaryngologist or ENT (ear, nose, and throat doctor). He developed much of the basic techniques used today for facial plastic surgery; he performed them on disfigured soldiers during World War I. After working on skin grafts with a French surgeon named Morestin, Gillies established a facial injury ward and then a facial repair hospital in 1917. He performed procedures on over five thousand men before opening a private practice and expanding his practice to perform surgery on famous patients. Although plastic surgery was originally performed mostly on men, it evolved over time into a female-targeted market. Facelifts, nose jobs, butt lifts, liposuction, tummy tucks, and breast augmentations are just some of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Most people utilize plastic surgery to remove fat and tighten saggy skin, or reshape an area of their face that is crooked, disproportionate, or just doesn't look aesthetically pleasing. These procedures tend to be marketed towards women, however, men that wish to undergo plastic surgery have every option open to them, including lesser known surgeries, such as peck or calf implants.
