What Is Plastic Surgery?
‘Plastic surgery’ is a term used to describe a wide variety of treatments and procedures performed as a way of altering a person’s physical appearance, either for cosmetic or medical reasons. The chosen treatment or procedure is done in order to shape or enhance certain areas of a patient’s body in order to increase their self-confidence. This increase in self-esteem and self-image comes as a result of the improvement in their appearance. Individuals considering plastic surgery must have a healthy approach to what can realistically be achieved and be aware of the limitations of their chosen procedure.
Am I the Right Candidate for Plastic Surgery?
If you have thought about undergoing plastic surgery, we urge you to consider your answers to the following questions:
- What are my expectations for plastic surgery and are they realistic?
- What goal am I looking to achieve by undergoing surgery?
- What is my motivation for choosing to undergo plastic surgery?
Plastic surgery candidates can generally be divided into two separate categories. The first category is for those individuals with a strong sense of self-esteem who may have a specific aspect of their appearance they are looking to improve upon. These patients maintain the same level of self-esteem following surgery. The second category is for individuals who are experiencing lowered self-confidence as a result of a flaw or defect in their physical appearance which has bothered them for years. These patients report a vast improvement in their self-esteem after undergoing surgery, as they gradually adjust to their new appearance, which is usually a dramatic change.
As an individual weighing the pros and cons of undergoing such a change as plastic surgery, we advise you to carefully consider how your chosen procedure will change your appearance and affect your level of self-esteem. If you want to undergo plastic surgery as a way of changing others’ opinion of you, you will be disappointed. Plastic surgery is not designed to change how other people see you but how you see and feel about yourself.
