nicki minaj before surgery - " you are not alone if you're wondering why cosmetic surgery is called "plastic surgery. This is a rather interesting term for the medical procedure that can help people defy the effects of aging. First of all, the word "plastic" comes from the Greek word "plastikos." This means to mold or shape, which is exactly what plastic surgery does. It reshapes the face by eliminating imperfections.

Believe it or not, plastic surgery goes back centuries. Skin grafts were used from the ancient Indians to reconstruct an element of the body. The Romans used cosmetic surgery to correct the damaged ears with their soldiers. Basically, the surgical procedure was inspired by war. Soldiers would become disfigured and plastic surgery was used to attempt to make sure they are as normal as possible. Plastic surgery became especially popular during World War I. Doctors from various countries like Canada and New Zealand were recognized to perform these procedures. The Canadian doctor well-known for plastic cosmetic surgery procedures is Dr. E. Fulton Risdon, who continued to train plastic surgery after helping soldiers during World War I. The doctor from New Zealand was Doctor Sir Harold Gillies. Both have been considered fathers of cosmetic surgery. It was Sir Gillie's cousin, Archibald McIndoe who had been a plastic cosmetic surgery pioneer in The Second World War as he started treating RAF air crews.
