Cosmetic surgery, also known as plastic surgery, is the method of remolding the original physical features to acquire a look that is approved and appreciated by the society. The surgery was earlier recommended for those suffering with major burns or deformities to correct their looks, however, with time people have started using it to enhance their looks the way they want.

According to a new study published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the predicted number of people going under the knife would be well over 55 millions by 2015. This amounts to approximately one cosmetic surgery for every five Americans, including children. The most favored surgeries for women are breast augmentations, liposuctions and eyelid enhancements while that for men are liposuctions, eyelid enhancements and nose reshaping. In the non surgical category, however, Botox remains the favorite for both the genders.
