Rhinoplasty: Plastic Surgery for Your Nose


Rhinoplasty: Plastic Surgery for Your Nose.

Rhinoplasty (also known as „nose job” or nose plastic surgery) is a type of plastic surgery that is used to enhance the function or appearance of a person’s nose.

The technique has a profound history, as it was first developed by Sushruta (often dubbed as the “father of surgery”), who lived in ancient India around 500 BC. Several centuries down the line, his method of forehead flap rhinoplasty is practiced almost unchanged even today. Rhinoplasty can be performed for aesthetic reasons (cosmetic surgery) or to rectify congenital defects or breathing problems (reconstructive surgery).

Microbiome – Beings Who Live in Us, Controlling Our Lives


Microbiome – Beings Who Live in Us, Controlling Our Lives.

Microbes are the dominant life form of Earth. Bacterial organisms living on our planet they outnumbered all others combined. Microbes dominate not only the planet, however, but also new people. Few know that the body of each of us is 10 times more microbial cells than the cells that compose the human body, and the number of microbial genes is 150 times than that of human genes. All these beings living in our body and its surface form an ecosystem that is called „microbiome” and symbiosis of these small beings with human cells creates a true „super-organism”.
