Plastic surgery may have a bad reputation from media and the television series “Botched,” which focuses on cosmetic procedures gone wrong. The media portrays plastic surgery as a way for the wealthy to become more beautiful, thinner, or younger looking. One may consider this the dark side of the industry because, it allows people to cover up their insecurities instead of accepting them. However, there is another side to plastic surgery that could be considered the “good” side. Many individuals rely on plastic surgeons to look normal again after a bad wreck, losing a breast after cancer, or to fix problem areas that cause pain to other parts of the body.

Procedures are either cosmetic or reconstructive. Reconstructive plastic surgery is beneficial to people who have suffered from trauma such as severe burns, automobile incidents, chronic pain, or cancer. This trauma can be reversed by repairing damaged tissues or curing pain. Breast reduction surgery is an example that could be argued as either a cosmetic surgery or reconstructive. In the scenario in which a woman has suffered chronic back, neck, or shoulder pain, breast reduction surgery would be considered a reconstructive surgery because it would reduce or even completely rid the pain the patient was experiencing beforehand.
On the other hand, cosmetic procedures only have appearance-based changes. Liposuction, Botox, and rhinoplasty are all considered cosmetic surgery because, they are altering the appearance of the patient without providing medical benefits.

Plastic surgery is the rigorous medical process of altering the human body through means of reconstruction, the removal of tissue, and the addition of tissue for cosmetic purposes. People see it every day and do not even question it. People’s faces and bodies are augmented in ways that humanity sees so regularly that viewers have become blind to it. Seeing faces and bodies perfectly sculpted by knives for sharp cheekbones, fuller lips, larger breasts, and a slimmer waist has tricked society into forgetting what the average person actually looks like. Consumers have become so blind to this constant fake image that humanity does not notice the difference until an unaltered, natural image is forced down our throats.
Many women face the fear that they are not good enough for anyone or even themselves. They always find something that is apart of their body that is not quite how they like it. Since women find something about themselves that is not good enough, they think that they need to change their body in order to be happy. A common way of changing their body is by getting cosmetic plastic surgery; particularly silicone breast implants. It may seem like it is a great idea at the time, but once the person changes what they do not like about themselves, they will find another thing that causes them to get cosmetic plastic surgery again.

Instead of making parts of their body smaller to achieve that “wasp waisted” look they are making parts of themselves bigger by use of injections and other body enhancements. Plastic surgery is so prolific in fact that many women especially actresses feel that as they age have to get work done in order to keeps job. Yolen compares this behavior to them “flinging”themselves “down the stairs” (7) in order to impress and please others . In the real world, however, no sane woman flings herself down the stairs but many do something just as dangerous with no one batting an eye to achieve that elusive, desired beauty. For example, many women who get breasts enhancements are quite literally putting poison bags full of silicone and salt water within their bodies and going through days worth of pain and permanent scarring in order to look beautiful for other people, men and women alike.
Crime has existed in societies across the world for centuries. Forensic science has given insight into the world of crime and has been able to unmask the secrets of crime scenes. For example, the archaeological exhumination of buried remains has been helpful in many investigations, and the information that can be obtained has been used to identify unrecognizable victims (Id, 2010). As the prevalence of crime increases, so does the need and use of forensic techniques, especially in regards to identifying deceased persons. As such, over the past decades, forensic anthropology has evolved and has given birth to an extensive array of technological advancements, from computerized databanks to advanced methods of facial reconstruction (Adebisi, 2008).

(Westerfeld 16) Instead of seeing true beauty Tally only sees the beauty the surgery gave people. Everyone believes the only beauty is through the surgery except the select few who can’t be controlled and see themselves as beautiful. “After one surgery, addicts will find a reason to have a second, then a third… in their quest for ‘perfection’” (Dr. Howard Samuels 1) People can get habituated to the idea of ‘perfection’ from surgery but technology can’t fix everything.
Barry Harris 04/29/16 Cosmetic Surgery Although many people suffer from accidents that can be intimidating cosmetic surgery should not be covered through insurance. The reasoning behind that is because we are already suffering from limited resources. Many people would take advantage of knowing they are covered by their insurance for cosmetic surgery.
