A growing trend noticeably increasing in the medical field is plastic surgeon—the practice of restoring or enhancing the physical appearance of the body.

The trend quickly spread to India by 800 B.C. when physicians began using skin grafts (replacing damaged skin with healthy skin) to repair facial injuries, a procedure that spread to Europe by the 1700’s. up until the 1900’s, plastic surgery expanded and improved as physicians began to follow this practice and make many new discoveries and enhancements in the medical field. By 1930, the American Board of Surgeons established a new board—American Board of Plastic Surgery—dedicated specifically to its name. Twenty years later, plastic surgeons designed a form of “internal wiring” to restore damages and deformities. Plastic Surgery made its public debut in the 1960’s when the use of silicone, a material used for the improvement of body imperfections, became widely known; but then banned in 1992 because the safety of the material was questionable. During the 1980’s, plastic surgery continued to expand its popularity with the public and the demand for physicians specialized in the practice snowballed. Toda...

- While writing a fiction novel, I would think that the writer would have to dig deep into their mind and into their heart in order for them to convey realistic emotions through their characters. This process could almost be related to hypnosis where the writer relies on his or her inner thoughts and feelings to effectively add depth to their novel's fictitious characters. In the novel Mrs. Dalloway, Virginia Woolf used a technique called stream-of-consciousness in which she attempted to write the novel in the same patterns as her brain's thought process....
