For many people, how they look is huge part of how they feel about themselves. Feeling beautiful is an integral part of their self-esteem, and they are willing to go to almost any length to acquire a high level of physical beauty. For this reason, cosmetic surgery has become very popular in recent years. Interestingly, with the development of advanced technology, cosmetic surgery is no longer only based on medical knowledge. Many new techniques have been developed with the potential for multiple applications in the field. In the mean time, it encourages innovation and improvements. Therefore, more mathematics and computer science students are actually becoming involved in this field because cosmetic surgery opens new career paths and creates many great opportunities for them. Thus, it is worthwhile to investigate the applications of mathematics and computer science in the area of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
Our report will focus on four branches: computer modelling, mechanical applications, moral and ethical issues, and future career paths. Computer modelling will focus on the use of technology, particularly computer science and how it offers both convenience and efficiency. The physics behind the mechanical applications, such as prosthetic limbs, will be explored. Moral and ethical issues will attempt to answer the many questions that arise from the use of reconstructive surgery. Should it be morally accepted in to our society or is it only fine when the circumstances are necessary? Finally, future career paths will explore the possibility of new opportunities and new job positions that are being introduced in the field of cosmetic surgery, geared towards both students and professors.
As the demand for cosmetic and reconstructive surgery increases, a new field of study is opening for students. There is a search to find methods of making the surgery process more efficient and organized. Using recent...
