Aesthetic beauty is the concept that is associated with appreciation of good taste, beauty or attractiveness. In this case, what is beautiful appeals to the eyes of the viewer and may have emotional aspect. Although there may be certain aspects that are almost universal in terms of aesthetics, some aspects are culture sensitive. From this premise, therefore, what a Chinese man would conceive as beautiful would not necessarily be the same as what an American would. Cultural affiliation have profound impacts one what one may appreciate as beautiful or not.
In the recent past, body modification to enhance beauty has increasingly become common. Many people seek what is commonly known as plastic surgery to enhance their beauty. The current lifestyles and the emergence of fast foods have led to the human body accumulating a lot of fat. Those who may not be able to lose the fat through the conventional ways, such as exercise prefer liposuction. This is a process where excess fats are removed through inserting a tube beneath the skin and sucking it using a vacuum-like machine. Others, especially women undergo breast augmentation where the breasts are enlarged to look more attractive. Others include Rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery, tummy tucking, face lift, breast lift (“American society of plastic surgeons,” n.d), among others. The body alone does not guaranteed beauty. Clothing comes in handy as a supplement of a beautiful body. In this case, many fashion lines have found a dear place in the hearts of the trendy population.
The human beauty aspects have had great impact on the economy, healthcare, and general socio-cultural aspects of the current times. For example, the increasing demand for plastic surgery has led to an increased number of surgeons specializing in the field. In addition, the fashion industry is one key industry in the world contributing to the economic growth of the countries.
