Cosmetic procedures increase in the US last year

Recent data from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery revealed cosmetic procedures nationwide significantly increased last year when compared to 2014, an article of Pantagraph reported on May 6.

Reports said over $13.5 billion in 2015 were spent on various cosmetic surgery procedures. Last year’s cosmetic surgery expenditures reportedly increased by $1.5 billion. The report also shared there has been an increase in surgeries for both women and men in the past five years. One of the most popular cosmetic surgeries last year was fat grafting, or the procedure of redistributing fat from one body part to another. The report noted nonsurgical procedures rapidly increased as well due to the fact that not all procedures are done in hospitals.

Cosmetic surgeons help disfigured burn victims in India

A team of volunteer cosmetic surgeons from Britain and a non-governmental organization in Delhi, India worked together on a project to treat individuals with disfigured body parts, an article of Mirror reported on April 20.

The British surgeons, along with former NHS medical practitioner and surgeon Dr. Charles Viva, were in Gurgaon for 12 days for “Project Revive” to treat disfigured victims for free. The team screened severe cases of disfigurement in different parts of India. Many of the disfigured patients were burn victims from dowry attacks or explosions. Dr. Viva stated the project aimed to help these injured individuals who often were left unable to function productively in society due to limitations of movement. Aside from the patients, the medical community was generally helped by the project, Dr. Viva also stated.
