PLASTIC SURGERY: a way to become beautiful or someone’s unhealthy idea? With passing time, the urge to become beautiful is increasing in everyone’s life. Is the requirement just in our heads or is it truly needed. Does everyone have a right to be beautiful and look more attractive? Most of us would say yes. Everyone wants to be good-looking and pretty. Nowadays looks and appearances seem to be the basic requirement in every person and hold much more importance compared to a person’s abilities and inner self. This instinct is present in human beings since the start of the world. Allah the Almighty has created this universe and has described it a beautiful creation. Amongst all, He proclaims that human being has been created as the best of its creations. The proportioning of different body parts in a human body is in its ultimate shape and it therefore cannot be improved further. One wonders as to how many samples have Allah made in his factory that no one matches other perfectly. However sometimes someone feels dissatisfied with the shape or proportioning of any of its revealing parts particularly nose and due to its natural instinct to look the most beautiful wants to improve it to the best possible shape. What is Plastic surgery? It is the result of this instinct that compelled scientists and doctors to initiate work in this field and finally they devised various methods for this purpose, all collectively known as plastic surgery. Plastic surgery as what people think is a surgery that involves fake and artificial material injected to our body to improve or reconstruct a body part etc. But plastic surgery is basically defined as a type of surgery that both improves a person’s appearance as well as body functions. The word “Plastic” comes from a Greek word “plastikos” that means to be able to be moulded. The question here is whether plastic surgery actually makes your life better or just acts as a placebo. Today more than 10 million people go through the processes of plastic surgery merely for cosmetic reasons. To what extent one should bear such heavy costs only for the sole purpose of looking beautiful? Considering the cost of such surgeries questions are raised whether the wealthy part of the world only deserves to be perfect and look beautiful? Doesn’t the poor part of the world have an equal right to make use of the facility to look better and beautiful? Is that fair? Certainly, no. There are two types of plastic surgeries; the reconstructive surgery and the cosmetic surgery. Reconstructive surgery is concerned with treating the injuries as well as defected marks or body parts. This type of surgery is used to treat the injuries caused by major accidents or deformities caused during birth or major operations. On the other hand cosmetic surgery is generally used for altering certain body parts merely due to ones dissatisfaction over their appearances. Thus cosmetic surgery is used to achieve perfection and satisfaction. This type of surgery is mostly and commonly used for liposuction, mammoplasty, rhinoplasty etc. Cosmetic surgery, as everyone knows, is used by celebrities and members of showbiz. A layman will think that an actress did cosmetic surgery only to hide signs of aging or change the size of her breasts, stomach or shape of nose. Till recently plastic surgery especially cosmetic surgery was considered a luxury which only the rich, bold and celebrities could afford but with increasing influence of Hollywood and Bollywood industries on the people and the society about obsession of body image, the rate of conducting cosmetic surgery is getting higher and higher. Now it is not uncommon to hear people generally women chatting excitedly how one of them got new breasts. The use of this surgery still involves lot of money and can be afforded by mostly the rich but it is not a luxury anymore since it is not only the celebrities that go through the process of cosmetic surgery but has become a general trend these days....
