Why Cosmetic Surgery?
Why Do You Want A Surgical Or Non Surgical Cosmetic Procedure?
As the title says; Why cosmetic surgery?
These are the three little words that you can be sure to hear uttered by at least one friend or relation, as you open up about your desire for a cosmetic procedure. Even if you are just planning a minor non surgical cosmetic procedure, chances are someone will want to know why.
But to be fair, you have probably asked yourself this question over and over again. All those times looking in the mirror, self evaluating your image in the most personal of ways. We all do it, and in front of a mirror is probably where you first began entertaining the very real consideration of getting a cosmetic procedure done.
Reasons Behind Wanting Cosmetic Surgery And Non Surgical Cosmetic Procedures
These of course can be endless, and everyone will have extremely personal reasons. One thing to remember is that over years of working, cosmetic surgeons (and non surgical cosmetic procedure providers) may have seen hundreds, and even thousands of individuals who all have had individual, and personal reasons for wanting cosmetic work done.
This is the sort of experience can help your provider turn your own evaluation into a very enlightened and helpful process, whilst still keeping your personal issues and needs paramount to the consultation.
In fact it would be worth noting at this point that if your perspective cosmetic provider doesn’t seem to be interested in the personal reasons behind why you have chosen this particular procedure, then it might be worth continuing your search until you find someone who takes the time to learn more about you and your choice.
Having Cosmetic Surgery Is More Than Just Image Change
Image change is obviously one of the main answers to the question of why cosmetic surgery, but it is the reasons that led up to wanting the image change that hold the real answers. These underlying reasons should be evaluated to make sure they are understood and addressed properly, not only by your potential cosmetic provider but more importantly by yourself.
Most of you who are thinking of cosmetic work are probably hoping that the procedure will help you feel better about yourself, by improving on some perceived imperfection. The influence of this perceived imperfection can manifest itself in many ways, such as believing having a cosmetic procedure to improve a physical feature will make you feel happier both personally, and make others respond in a more positive manner - Such as improving your social interactions, gaining more career opportunities, etc.
A Cosmetic Procedure Provider’s Role Is To Advise
Ask any qualified cosmetic surgeon and each one will tell you the same thing; Only you and you alone can make the decision on whether to receive surgery. This goes for all of the non surgical cosmetic procedures, that are so readily available, as well. All properly trained cosmetic providers will tell you that before jumping in and receiving any procedure, you need to fully educate yourself about what you’re about to do.
This self education should always include a thorough research of providers of the cosmetic procedure you want. It is so vitally important to choose professional, fully trained and credentialed providers, such as board certified plastic surgeons, etc.
Just remember that one or more of these qualified cosmetic providers are going to be the single most important provider of knowledge that can help bring you to your answer of whether to go ahead with the desired cosmetic procedure or not.
It is also worth remembering at this point that you are also being sized up and monitored as to your compatibility to undergo the cosmetic process as well. Especially for the more invasive cosmetic surgery procedures, any reliable cosmetic surgeon is going to make sure you are an appropriate match for the elective surgery you are after.
Why Final Cosmetic Procedure Decisions Should Always Be Personal
Renowned oculofacial plastic surgeon Joel E. Kopelman M.D, who has over 30 years of medical experience, recently told the Cosmetic Tourist that ‘whilst a plastic surgeon can offer their professional advice, it is all about the individual receiving it’ and in the end it is the individual who will have to ‘make the final decision’ (read our full article with Dr. Kopelman here)
So even when picking a cosmetic surgeon or clinic with impeccable credentials and solid reviews, remember that they can only offer up potential solutions to the physical manifestation of your decision for contemplating cosmetic surgery and non surgical cosmetic procedures.
So final words in a nutshell? You should never make the mistake of over simplifying any procedure and always, always, always make the final decision yourself.
