Getting to know the community of plastic surgery to improve upper and lower eyelids and eyebrows, forming the cheeks, chin, and nose, face lift, neck lift, remove tattoos, tummy tuck, liposuction or liposuction, to enlarge or shrink the breast.

Many assumptions are emerging that the risks of plastic surgery is not for other surgical treatments such as surgery organs inside the body. But in fact, the surgical risk is as great as the other types of operation.

Warnings of the risk magnitude of plastic surgery, health experts confirmed recently. They also stressed that plastic surgery should be reserved for people who are able-bodied.

Director of Plastic Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dr. Rod Rohrich, quoted by Xinhua news agency, said the plastic surgeon has the same risk of surgical-operatively with others.

Along with the high number of people who want to do plastic surgery, especially in the United States, health experts working to provide appropriate education about plastic surgery to the public.

I see U.S. consumers consider plastic surgery as a staple. In fact, plastic surgery is not like buying a shoe. You can return it (if not fit). While you can not restore your life, explained Dr. Rohrich.

Plastic surgery can only be done for healthy patients. If they are not healthy, then do not ever force yourself to undergo plastic surgery,  he stated.

According to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, as many as 11 million people undergo plastic surgery in 2006, an increase of 48 percent over 2000.

A study published recently in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery revealed that serious complications occur in one out of 298 cases, and deaths occur from one in 51 459 cases.

Dr. Rohrich said, the onslaught of media coverage focused on the lives of celebrities and reality shows on television shows to be the main cause of the increasing popularity of plastic surgery.

Research published by the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery was also revealed, reality shows aired on television can influence people directly in making decisions to undergo plastic surgery.
