Cosmetic Surgery – a way to a better life?

Somewhere deep in our hearts, don’t we all aspire to look like one of the T.V stars or be like  one of our role models in life?

We know that, sometimes, we would look so much better with a sharper nose, or do so well with a more defined chin. But most of the millions inhabiting the Earth, contend with the body and looks they have been naturally gifted with.

Cosmetic Surgery gives us an opportunity to defy both genetics and ageing. It alters the contours of the skin, cartilages and adipose tissues using surgical methods to change the looks and features of a person.

Ever since we are born, we grow up in an environment of unconditional love and unbiased support of our family and friends. However, when we step out into the world, and look at our peers, colleges, competitors and even our audience, we want to look smarter than them, be more elegant than them and feel more comfortable under our skin.

Cosmetic surgery gives us an opportunity to love ourselves more by enhancing our looks and personality so that we can take on the world with confidence and self-esteem. At the same time, it helps in creating an image of ourselves and building a personality, that people in our surroundings can easily associate with and feel more comfortable with.

Cosmetic surgery has come as a boon for those born with physical deformities, who are striving to lead a normal life like their fellow citizens. Even until a century ago, it was impossible for such people to walk straight, sit straight or look straight.

Cosmetic surgery, more popularly known as Plastic Surgery is basically a branch of medicine. The methods of surgery and treatment of severe burns, cuts, scars, and organ transplants were perfected to an art form, leading to a growth in the demand for plastic surgeons in the beauty industry.

Considering the high cost of operation and post operative care and maintenance, plastic surgery has become more popular with the well-to-do, those who have to maintain a public profile, those who aspire to make a mark in the glamor industry and those who wish to find a place in the hearts of their fans and followers.

As all good things in life come with a fair share of difficulties and hazards, so is the case with plastic surgery. Hence,  anybody wanting to take the plunge will have to do a lot of research with respect to :-

the right surgeon –  its important to check upon the surgeon’s credentials and experience in handling such cases.

  1. the part that one would like to transform – it helps to be very precise about exactly which part to change into what, so that the body looks balanced, in shape and further surgeries are not required.
  2. the after effects of the operation – make repeated inquiries about the recuperation time, post operation care, and the duration for which we have to take off from work. One needs the time and support of near and dear ones during this period.
  3. cost – do not hesitate to scout for the best deal. There may be great differences in the cost structure at different places in the world. You may also find centers that offer to do the surgery at half the price! It always pays well to take opinion from ex patients about their experiences. We must not get into the trap of well advertised but cheap clinics that do not have expertise or good manpower to execute the task properly or give proper advice.

Please discuss all the pre-operative and post operative procedures with your surgeon because you will need a lot of psychological support not only from your family and friends but a helluva lot from your surgeon too!

In any case, cosmetic surgery has been transforming lives for many since the past number of decades. Whether we use it to better our life or as a shortcut to stardom, just make sure it does not lead to your ruin. That is simply Look before you Leap.
