*LBN-INVESTIGATES: Plastic Surgery
· “Plastic” is derived from the Greek plasikos, meaning “to mold.” The term “surgery” is derived from the Greek kheirourgos, from kheir – “hand” + ergon – “work.”
· Over half a million pet owners worldwide have opted to implant their pets with “neuticles,” which are testicular implants for the neutered pet.
· The first recorded “nose job” is found in ancient Indian Sanskrit texts (600 B.C.). Physicians would reconstruct noses by cutting skin from either the cheek or forehead, twisting the skin side out over a leaf of the appropriate size, and sewing the skin into place. Two polished wooden tubes would be inserted into the nostrils to keep the air passage open during healing.
· “Elfing” is a plastic surgery technique in which a surgeon slices the top of ear cartilage and then sews it back together in a point.
· During the Middle Ages, plastic surgery was typically deemed pagan and sinful because the spilling of blood by a surgeon and the power the surgeon had over the body were akin to magic.
· When plastic surgery became popular during the Renaissance, surgeons took skin grafts from various donors, such as a neighbor’s pig, but were confused when the new nose would shrivel up and fall off. They concluded the flesh was “sympathetic,” meaning that the graft died when its original owner died.
Millennial men are bolstering the plastic surgery industry, mainly because of the rise of social media and an awareness of how they look from different angles in images.
· By the first century B.C., Romans were practicing various forms of plastic surgery to repair noses, eyes, lips, and teeth. Roman physician Cornelius Celsus (c. 25 B.C.-A.D. 50) also describes procedures such as circumcision reversal and even breast reduction in men.
· “Dimpleplasty” is a type of plastic surgery that gives a person dimples. It’s an outpatient procedure that lasts about 30 minutes and costs between $2,000 and $5,000. A surgeon makes a tiny incision inside a patient’s cheek, removes a small piece of cheek muscle, and attaches the remaining muscle to the underside of the skin, which leaves a permanent indentation, creating the dimple.
