Cosmetic Surgery – What it Can and Cannot do for You

Share Button

Cosmetic SurgeryPeople choose to have cosmetic surgery because they believe that changing something about their appearance that they don’t like will make a positive difference. However, when you are considering a procedure, you must be realistic about what it can and cannot do for you. For instance, while a cosmetic procedure can change your physical appearance, it cannot change who you are. In other words, a qualified and experienced cosmetic surgeon can only help you achieve the look you want, which will reduce your feelings of insecurity and boost your self-confidence. Let’s take a realistic look at what cosmetic surgical treatments can and cannot do for you.

Cosmetic surgeons can correct many physical flaws but cannot change your genetic makeup. We all have certain inherited biological characteristics and cosmetic surgery may not be able to change these successfully. Your facial skeleton, for instance, is unique. So your expectations would be unrealistic if you think that the surgeon can alter your facial appearance to look like someone else.

When it comes to weight loss, the best way to achieve your goals is through diet and exercise. A popular cosmetic surgical procedure, liposuction can help remove only stubborn, localized deposits of fat that refuse to respond to your weight loss efforts. People considering lipolysis should know that it is not a weight loss strategy. Even after you have had the body contouring treatment, it is up to you to maintain the outcome with a healthy lifestyle.

Cosmetic surgery can slow down the signs of aging and conceal flaws. But you are not the right candidate for a procedure if you’re having it to impress someone else or because someone else suggested you do so. The decision to have the procedure should be yours. For instance, other people’s opinions should not be a motivating factor in your decision to have facial plastic surgery.

Having cosmetic surgery can make you feel good about yourself and boost your self-esteem and confidence, but it cannot solve your personal problems or transform your life. Of course, many people find that their newly acquired confidence translates into positive changes such as finding a new job or improved social relationships.

People who are realistic and accept the changes that cosmetic surgery can and cannot achieve are happier about the results of their procedure. It is also important to acknowledge and accept the risks that all surgery involves. The best way to make an informed decision is to consult an experienced cosmetic plastic surgeon. A compassionate surgeon will show patience, strive to understand your goals and expectations, give you a clear idea of what’s actually possible, and help you take the right step.
