3 Reasons to Say No to Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery is a medical procedure that corrects the shape, form or function of a body organ. Cosmetic surgery and aesthetic surgery are the best known forms of plastic surgery but plastic surgery is not just for cosmetic purposes alone. There are other types too such as reconstructive surgery, hand surgery, micro surgery and treatment of burn victims. The unhealthy obsession with the body image, the low self-esteem and the need to look perfect or the need to look like a celebrity has forces a lot of men and women to go for plastic surgery when they really do not need one. Plastic surgery is not a simple procedure but a very complex surgical operation that has to be done by a certified practitioner. Sometimes, a surgery can be fatal and even lead to death. There are so many reasons why one should say no to plastic surgery and here are some.
1. Don’t get plastic surgery done for cosmetic reasons
If you have a serious defect, such as problems with the nose or a ugly burn scar that covers most of your face, then it is ok to go for a reconstructive surgery or a aesthetic surgery. If you want to get a surgery done just for cosmetic purposes, you should think twice about it as you will be altering your features. If for some reason you get bored with what you have got, you may have to undergo another painful surgery. Also it is important to understand that you are going to be stuck with the bone structure that you were born with forever and plastic surgery isn’t going to change that.
2. It can sometimes kill you
If your surgeon says no to surgery, you should stop at that and not compel him to go ahead with it. He may have good reasons for refusing to operate on you. If someone else says yes and operates on you, then you need to be really careful as plastic surgeries that are not really needed or complex should be done with utmost care. If you go to an unauthorized quack, you risk the chances of something going terribly wrong and even dying.
3. Be proud of who you are naturally
Do not fall for what the world wants or what other people think of you. The world is a much bigger place that what you know and your features may be much desired in another part of the world. Be proud of what you are born with. There would be a reason for your body shape. If you think you have small breasts, maybe they are small so your posture would be right. Take pride in your appearance and say no to cosmetic surgery for vanity.
Plastic surgery is expensive and not something that you can get done in a matter of minutes or hours such as Botox injections or laser surgery. It is also complicated and more people have suffered than been really happy with the outcome. Get it done only when it is medically needed and not just because you want to alter your appearances.
