Camouflage therapy in aesthetic surgery
The use of makeup has been traced back to antiquity. Today, there are multiple reasons that makeup constitutes an important part of, and is a driving force in, almost every woman's life. The idea of using cosmetics for camouflage therapy, especially in the postoperative period, originates from the illusionary effect, which is thought to diminish the post-traumatic stress frequently seen after facial operations. The patients will feel better following cosmetic application, as they will see themselves better. (C) 2014 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
