Plastic Surgery

Is Plastic Surgery Safe for all People?

The minute your doctor says that plastic surgery is for everyone, warning signals need to be raised. For the simple reason that not everyone in the world is an ideal candidate for plastic surgery; the reasons why plastic surgery is not suitable for everyone is as follows:

  1. You’re doing it for the wrong reasons.
  2. Your past medical history prevents you from undergoing surgery.

Let us first look at reason number 1; most people have the wrong idea that plastic surgery will drastically change their lives. If you’re someone who is looking at plastic surgery as a way to look better or give you that extra bit of confidence, then you would be an ideal candidate. But the big misconception is that people expect one surgery to completely transform their lives. When that result doesn’t appease the person, they tend to go under the knife more often to reach those expected results. But in the end either end up being addicted to plastic surgery or end up facing adverse psychological issues. If your doctor doesn’t ask you why you’re doing this surgery and then doesn’t advice you against doing it while you’re undergoing a massive issue such as losing a job or falling out of a relationship, you need to find a new doctor.

There have been well-documented cases of people falling prey to the addiction of plastic surgeries; after a point, they become extremely unrecognizable and are at a place where they believe that the next surgery will be the answer to all their problems. You as an individual have to understand that a minor change in appearance alone will not get you that dream job nor would it impact your outlook on the world.

The second reason is a lot more serious, considering that your previous medical history can easily cause complications during your surgery. Your doctor needs to look at all past medical records and understand the gravity of the situation. Most people who have had botched surgeries later reveal that they have had a medical condition that would have prevented them from going under the knife. Not only does the doctor have a responsibility, so do you. Therefore disclose all previous conditions that you may have, this would help the doctor to adjust and adapt accordingly. If on the off chance your doctor believes that the surgery would lead to serious complications then refrain from getting it done.

Plastic surgery has its benefits but also its downfalls. So if you’re going to take that step, make sure to be responsible.
