Abstract
The authors presented 'A study on the knowledge about the field of plastic surgery(I)' decade ago. Since then, the cognition toward a plastic surgery might be altered by the evolution of internet and social atmosphere taking count of outward appearance. Therefore the authors studied again about the cognition to the plastic surgery. The subjects were total 1812 of high school and college students residing in Seoul, Korea from October through December in 2003 and 1812 students are consisted of 839 male and 973 female. The contents of questionnaire are as follows: 1. The cognition to the plastic surgery. 2. The cognition to the difference between plastic surgery and orthopedic surgery. 3. The cognition to the operation performing in the filed of plastic surgery. 4. The known operation kinds of plastic surgery. 5. The experience of plastic surgery operation. We compared the results of this survey with that in 1992. The results of research showed 15.1% increase in the cognition to the plastic surgery, 5.6% increase in the cognition to the difference between plastic surgery and orthopedic surgery and 9% increase in the cognition to the operation performing in the filed of plastic surgery. In the known operation kinds of plastic surgery, a double-eyelid operation was the most well known and followed by rhinoplasty and augmentation mammoplasty, but in 1992, a double-eyelid operation was followed by rhinoplasty and rhytidectomy. In the experience of plastic surgery operation, the result showed 6.3 %, which has more than doubled in the last 10 years. Increase of the cognition to the plastic surgery is inspired, but that results is localized to aesthetic field.
