Almost everyone will experience some minor body-image insecurities sooner or later. Whether it’s a hereditary predisposition, the effect of trauma, or the unavoidable changes that come with ageing, some people may experience years of low self-esteem related to aesthetic problems. Unfortunately, no amount of dieting or exercise will alter their breast size, change the contour of their nose, or get rid of stubborn areas of ugly fat. A surgical operation is not suitable for everyone, despite the fact that “going under the knife” with plastic surgery may sound like the quickest and simplest approach to enhance appearance.
Even while the initial “why you want surgery” may seem obvious, actually stop and think about what is causing your uneasiness. Has your present boyfriend been pressuring you to have a more voluptuous form, or have you always wanted larger, more proportionate breasts? Have you been trying unsuccessfully to lose your “muffin top” for years at the gym? Or perhaps you’ve recently gone through a significant life event, like a divorce, breakup, or job loss, and you’re now convinced that a flatter tummy would improve your self-esteem.
Do your homework before choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon. Take your time determining the best course of action for your particular needs and financial situation. Get a second or third opinion if, following your consultation, you feel uncomfortable with the doctor or the clinic. When you are satisfied with the responses to these four important questions, you could be prepared to proceed with plastic surgery.
