Believe it or not those who first came up with the idea of plastic surgery wanted it used for good. In fact it was originally (and still is) for burn victims and since it’s conception it’s become more well known for it’s “enhancing” techniques.

I want to write this post because I saw some video of a person who has (in my opinion) NOT benefited from plastic surgery. But it’s like she can’t stop….and unfortunately she is the rule rather than the exception, especially in Hollywood.

Walter Yeo is widely known as the first person to benefit from reconstructive surgery. He was in the British Navy and sustained terrible but not fatal injuries. The surgery was done in 1917 and is VERY hard to look at, so you’ve been warned.

Again, reconstructive surgery is “performed to correct functional impairments caused by burns; traumatic injuries, such as facial bone fractures; congenital abnormalities; developmental abnormalities; infection and disease” etc etc but towards the end of the 20th Century it became mostly about “Cosmetic” surgery.
