What Is Plastic Surgery?
There are literally hundreds of different procedures that can be defined as plastic surgery. Generally speaking, any procedure that helps reshape certain areas of the body with the hope of improving the patient’s appearance and self-esteem is considered plastic surgery.
If you wish to have plastic surgery, you will first undergo an evaluation to ensure you have the right attitude and expectations for the type of procedure you are looking to have performed.
Am I the Right Candidate for Plastic Surgery?
As previously stated, your attitude and level of expectation will go a long way in determining if you are an ideal candidate for plastic surgery. If this is something you are really serious about, here are three questions you need to ask yourself:
- What are you expecting plastic surgery to do for you?
- What goals are you trying to achieve with plastic surgery?
- What is behind your desire to have plastic surgery?
Most plastic surgery candidates will fall into one of two categories. Individuals who have strong self-esteem and a good body image will usually fall into category one. These are people who have a specific area of their bodies that they want to improve. After surgery, candidates in this category will have the same self-image they had prior to surgery.
Individuals in category two have various flaws and defects that have completely diminished their self-esteem and self-worth. After plastic surgery, they have a renewed sense of self-esteem and are ready to take on the world. Individuals in this category usually have very dramatic results.
If you are seriously considering plastic surgery, understand that it can, and more than likely will, have a huge impact on your self-esteem. However, if your goal is to change the opinions of others, you will be very disappointed. Plastic surgery is not about changing how others see you, it’s about changing how you see yourself.If you are looking for a way to improve how you look and feel, plastic surgery may be a good option for you.
