The number of cosmetic surgeries have increased, according to the Washington Post, by 440% compared to the number in 1997. The side effects and black market society has increased as well.
Today, I brought up a question-should cosmetic surgery be allowed or not? My motion is to restrict cosmetic surgery through the Korean Medical Association(KMA), making qualifications to get plastic surgery harder and limiting outside or private institutes.
I define cosmetic surgery as an operation performed in the beauty industry, not including reconstructive surgery.

Therefore, Cosmetic surgery...
