Introduction

Future Career Paths in the Field of Cosmetic Surgery

        People are becoming very interested with enhancing their bodies in order to fit the current beauty standard being set by Hollywood, the media, and the pop culture these days. More and more of them from all walks of life are now turning to the cosmetic surgeons to improve their appearance, which a lot of them believe may enhance career prospects or improve social opportunities. That’s one of the main reasons why cosmetic surgery has become popular in recent years. Many new techniques have been developed with the potential for multiple applications in this field. Interesting, mathematics and computer imaging start to play important roles in cosmetic surgery. In this section, we are going to look at how mathematics and computer science students would actually get involved in this field and how cosmetic surgery can lead to the future career paths in the area of mathematics and computer science.

Cosmetic Surgery—“Computer Aided” Surgery

        Computer technology has affected life in the late 20th century from different ways. It is not surprising that computers can be used in multiple ways in the field of cosmetic surgery. Surgeons use these technological advances in order to simplify complex and historically challenging reconstructive issues.

Computer Imaging of the face allows patient to fully describe to the surgeon what is desired, and for the surgeon to illustrate what is possible. In other words, the main advantage of computer imaging of facial reconstruction is that is enables the doctor and patient to work together on redesigning the part which the patient wants to change.

Conclusion

Conclusion

By looking at the applications of mathematics and computer science in the field of cosmetic surgery, we can find out our experiences with computer and math can be used in a variety of career areas. As cosmetic surgery becomes more and more popular in our society, it brings many great career opportunities to the students who have strong mathematics or computer science backgrounds. We should say, for math and CS students, it is wroth while pursuing a career in cosmetic surgery in the future. And the most important is, math and CS students can use their knowledge to make a big difference in the field of cosmetic surgery.

  2. A logistic model

    Politicians in the area are anxious to show economic benefits from this project and wish to begin the harvest before the fish population reaches its projected steady state. The biologist is called upon to determine how soon fish may be harvested after the initial introduction of 10,000 fish.

    r = 1.5, 2, 2.3, 2.5), it can be said that over time, the population size of fish will settle down and converge at a population of 60000. When we look at higher initial growth rates however, (i.e. r = 2.9, 3.2), the population of fish does not converge towards the sustainable limit, but fluctuates around it.
