Walter Yeo, a British soldier, is often cited as the first known person to have benefited from successful plastic surgery. The photograph shows him before (left) and after (right) receiving a skin graft performed by Sir Harold Gillies in 1917.
Plastic surgery was being carried out in India by 2000 BC. Sushruta (6th century BC) made important contributions to the field of Plastic and Cataract surgery. The medical works of both Sushruta and Charak were translated into Arabic language during the Abbasid Caliphate (750 AD). These Arabic works made their way into Europe via intermediaries. In Italy the Branca family of Sicily and Gaspare Tagliacozzi (Bologna) became familiar with the techniques of Sushruta.
In modern day cosmetic surgery MYA can be seen as one of those who is continuoing the legacy of an efficient and successful surgery in order to improve one's body and self image. I believe that it is not a luxury to improve oneself if you have the capacity to make it happen. We are what we see and people have the right to decide on whether to undergo this procedure or not.
What's the Mya Advantage? Well simple actually. Their capacity to make successful cosmetic surgery is unsurpassed and you can even apply to finance your procedure. Their website http://www.mya.co.uk/ offers everything you want to know about them.
I am not an expert on these procedures so I highly recommend that you see for yourself. Explore the website, contact them and then decide.
Love yourself for it is a way into how you can love others.
