Everyone likes to look their best, younger, leaner and prettier. With plastic surgery you can easily shape your body, correct your nostrils or simply take away the double chin you have. But it does not mean that since we can all undergo plastic surgery that we should do it. It is also a procedure that can be expensive at times.
Do you need plastic surgery?
The question always arises whether you are someone who really needs plastic surgery or is psychotherapy a better option for you. That is why plastic surgeons usually thoroughly evaluate a patient to check whether what you want is realistic or if there is an underlying emotional problem driving you to opt for surgery.
A main psychological problem may be body dysmorphic disorder (BDD), where patients are obsessed about the presumed physical defect they have in their appearance and are not convinced even when others reassure them that everything is fine. Such obsessions include moles, freckles, acne or breast size.
There are also relevant reasons for deciding to undertake plastic surgery, like an airhostess wanting to look younger so that she will be retained in her job. In such cases doctors do consent to do the surgery.
Surgery for Teens
Many teenagers are constantly worried about their looks and you can’t hold it against them. Some of them want their noses done and after the surgery they find that their whole personality has changed, this helps them feel more confident and achieve more in life with a better body image.
On the other hand when parents accompany the teenager, then more often the parents are the ones who talk. This is not a healthy practice since the doctor wants to know what the teenager has in mind about their face or body.
Cosmetic surgery is more prevalent among teenagers and even then it constitutes a very less percentage of the total plastic surgeries done in a year.
It is known fact that plastic or cosmetic surgery may make you feel better about yourself, but it is not a magical solution that will change the whole life of a person.
Liposuction is the removal of excess fat from the body so as to reshape the body. Liposuction does not replace weight loss and it is not going to make anyone look thinner. The only thing it does is improve the contours at the same weight. For example if your hips have extra bulges and it affects the way your clothes fit, liposuction can help you remove those bulges and make you fit into your clothes better.
Finally, you can choose plastic surgery only after making sure that the procedure will help you meet your goals in health, looks and life.
