Two words: Global plastics

May 20, 2013

 

 

The rest of the world owes the invention of modern plastic surgery to the US. From its invention in the 1900s to its boom in the 1950s and further improvement in the 1970s, plastic surgery is now a far cry from the cosmetic procedure supposedly invented by the Egyptians back in 800 BC.

But with the rising popularity of plastic surgery across different countries, it seems that the United States may soon be dethroned from being the plastic surgery capital of the world. Even though the latest analysis from the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery may claim that the US is still leading in the sheer number of those undergoing plastic surgery, the rest of the world isn’t lagging behind when it comes to the percentage per population.

Plastic surgeries are so often performed abroad that patients are already planning medical travels just so they can have these procedures. Not only are patients assured of surgical expertise under the hands of experienced practitioners, they also get to enjoy luxurious facilities for much more affordable rates—sometimes for just a fraction of domestic costs.

Way back in 1967, Dustin Hoffman’s landmark film The Graduate featured a line which portended a great future for the industry in the US: “One word: plastics.” But with the way things are going, the line may need to be edited to mirror current trends: “Two words: global plastics.”
