Beauty is, for certain, in the eye of the beholder, but how does the background change that view? Plastic surgery is becoming more and more prevalent across the United States.

When it comes to hand and face transplants, much is still unknown. The first facial procedure was completed just over five years ago, and since then just seven have been performed in three U.S. hospitals. Twenty patients have undergone hand transplants.

Plastic surgery reports show that some of the most popular procedures include rhinoplasties, tummy tucks, and breast augmentations. But some people are surprised to see that other, more private areas of the body are being targeted by women and their surgeons. Buttock augmentation and vaginal rejuvenation, also known as a labiaplasty, saw tremendous growth last year. In fact, the number of buttock procedures rose by 58% in 2013. Nearly 10,000 buttock augmentations with fat grafting were performed last year. The number of vaginal rejuvenation procedures increased by 44% between 2012 and 2013.

Women with very wide toes are “suffering” from a condition that has been coined, ‘toe-besity’. New York-based podiatrist Dr. Oliver Zong recently interviews with “Good Morning America” about this emerging trend, and shares some insights about this elective surgery.

December 6th is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women. LocateADoc.com would like to recognize the Cosmetic and Reconstructive Support (CRS) Program that the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) offers to survivors of domestic violence. The NCADV has a firm partnership with facial plastic surgery doctors and cosmetic dentistry doctors from across the country that volunteer their services and assist survivors of domestic violence who cannot afford cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and dentistry needed to remove physical scares and injuries received by their spouse or partner.

One of the programs partnered with the NCADV is FACE TO FACE. The FACE TO FACE Program was started by the Educational and Research Foundation for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) in 1994. This program offers facial plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery to survivor victims repairing damages to the face, head, and neck caused by the domestic attacker.
