What Is Your View on Cosmetic Surgery?

Aug 17, 2007
You see advertisements on the television, you see them in the papers and magazines, you are told that slim is beautiful, and that you need perfect skin. You are constantly asked to vote in telephone votes to keep you favorite icon from getting chucked off some television program.

That person is your idol, and in some cases you would love to look like them.

You are told cosmetic surgery can solve all of your problems, and straight away you buy into this thinking, if I get this done my life will be so much better.

Some people will settle with maybe a breast implant and stop there. However, others will become so obsessed with changing nearly everything about themselves, that they will end up looking completely different form what they did.

After surgery there is not telling how it will look, so how do you know that after all the pain and expense, you are going to be happy with your new look? What is causing all of the insecurity, and is the media completely to blame?

The Many Reasons behind Cosmetic Surgery

Whilst cosmetic surgery may enhance some people's looks and it can be great for people with genuine reasons to have the surgery done, it is still over used in my opinion. Too many young people are growing up wanting to change their body and face through cosmetic surgery, because they think that it will make them perfect.

In this day and age there is a lot of pressure on young people, especially young girls, to look good. However, that should not be a reason to go and get cosmetic surgery.

If you are dead set on having cosmetic surgery done, there is not really a lot than can change your mind. However, many young girls do not realize that their bodies will change as they grow, and the body they have now, may not be the same one they will have in a few years time. Too many people rush into the decision of having cosmetic surgery, and it is a shame because if they had waited, they may not have needed it in the end.

You need to really sit down and think about why you want surgery done. Is it because you feel like you do not fit in? Is it because you think you would be more popular if you got surgery done? What ever the reason, you should consider why you think it would be better.

It could be that you need counseling, or if you concentrated on other things like changing dress sense, or experimenting with products it may help to improve your confidence. It is amazing what a bit of make up can do if you know how to apply it properly.

These days there are quite a few different types of cosmetic surgery. You can have practically anything done to your body as long as you have the money. However, it is recommended that you do not let other people influence your decision to have Cosmetic surgery. If you are adamant about having the procedure done, make sure you are doing it for yourself and nobody else. Otherwise, you may well live to regret it!

Is Cosmetic Surgery Safe?

Cosmetic surgery is surgery after all, and all surgery is risky no matter what you are having done. There have been many cases where cosmetic surgery has gone wrong, some are high profile whilst others are never really heard of.

There have been cases of breast implants bursting, lip collagen implants going drastically wrong. Overall, you can never be sure that your Cosmetic Surgery will run completely smoothly. In order to reduce the risks of surgery, you should choose somebody who knows exactly what they are doing. Scarily, there are some really dodgy plastic surgeons out there that are only after the money.

So always make sure you go with a surgeon which you can trust, and who has the right qualifications. After all, it is surgery and you are bargaining with your life!

Remember; try to not let other people influence your decisions, if you feel surgery is what will make you happier, then it has to be done just for you and nobody else.
