Plastic Planet

Implications - The ongoing quest for perfection means there will always be opportunities for companies to tap into society's insecurities. This year, we saw a rise in rush surgeries -- near instantaneous aesthetic modification such as rhinoplasty surgery that resculpts noses in as little as five minutes and half-hour breast augmentation surgeries. We also saw the world’s first face transplant in France and an under-the-skin bra invented by an Israeli surgeon.
