The concept of beauty has changed over ages and generations. It varies from country to country, generation to generation, its forms changing with the passage of history and time. The understanding of cosmetic surgery stems from the understanding of beauty.
What is the concept of beauty in Kolkata today? How does it differ from the west? What is beautiful in twenty-first century? How has it changed from twentieth Century? This forms the grass root architecture of cosmetic surgery. As the sculptors of Coomortooli would slowly carve the beauty on clay and mud, plastic surgeons carve this on human body.
Though Kolkata girls are one of the most beautiful in the world, yet there is reluctance on Cosmetic Surgery. Either there is a misconception, that it is expensive or there is a taboo, it is unnecessary. Neither of them is true.
Cosmetic Surgery is an art. With all other surgery, the successful completion of the operation without post-operative complications ends the story. In Cosmetic Surgery, that is where the expertise begins. Anyone can look at it and judge the job is well or not done. That is where the experience and artistic talent of the surgeon comes in.
To understand cosmetic surgery one has to be familiar with the concepts of beauty pertaining to a particular culture at a particular time. Re-modelling a nose or contouring a breast is dependant on concepts of the profile of the individual in relation to her socio-cultural background. Beauty has different forms of embalming on its basic skeletal structure. However its definitions and visualisation varies from country to country, from civilisation to civilisation, from culture to culture and from generation to generation.
Kolkata has a culture of its own and indeed stands uniquely as being the cultural capital of India . Indeed lots of beauties have emerged from this historic soil. To figure, where cosmetic surgery stands in Kolkata one has to understand, what is beautiful in Kolkata?
And giving this concept a human form, with art and sculpture, without taking away the ethnic characteristics, is what cosmetic surgery is all about…..
