What Is Plastic Surgery?
Plastic surgery encompasses a number of different procedures that give new structure and shape to certain areas of the body. These procedures can help to increase a patient’s self-esteem and improve their appearance as well as correct imperfections due to injury or genetic defect. It’s important to have realistic expectations of the results and to know the limitations of individual surgeries when deciding to have any procedure.
Am I the Right Candidate for Plastic Surgery?
Before considering plastic surgery, you should ask yourself the following questions:
- What are my expectations for plastic surgery overall?
- What are my goals and how can plastic surgery help me achieve them?
- What motivates my desire for surgery?
Candidates for plastic surgery can usually be divided into two categories. Individuals who generally have a strong positive self-image occupy the first category. They simply want to change or improve something about themselves to feel even better. After surgery, these candidates continue to have the high self-esteem they had before surgery.
The second category is comprised of people who feel burdened by flaws or defects that have reduced their self-esteem over many years. After undergoing surgery and gradually adjusting to their new look, their self-esteem begins to improve dramatically.
It’s important to approach cosmetic surgery from a positive point of view. Plastic surgery can dramatically change how you look and increase your self-esteem. You may be disappointed, however, if your reason for getting surgery is to change the opinions of others. It’s important to realize that the surgery is meant to change how you see yourself, not how others see you.Plastic surgery may be an option if you are not completely satisfied with how you look.
