When it comes to talk of plastic surgery, some people believe it’s all about vanity. This is spoken of in harsh tones, as if it’s a crime to want to improve your aesthetics. While it certainly isn’t a crime, vanity is also quite low on the list of reasons individuals have for seeking out cosmetic surgery. Understanding the reasons why people have these surgeries can help you better understand other people’s motivations and, perhaps, your own wants and desires.
You’re Tired of Looking at Your Imperfection
Many of the people who come to our office say that they themselves are sick of looking at their issue in the mirror. Whether it’s excess fat or unwanted wrinkles, they want it gone simply because they’re tired of it existing on their body. Much like a person can come to hate a regretted tattoo, people can come to despise their imperfections. Plastic surgery takes these things away.
You Know Your Issue Has Consumed Too Much Time or Energy
If you’ve wanted a rhinoplasty for ten years or have wanted breast augmentation since college, there can come a point where you know the circular nature of your thoughts is no longer emotionally healthy. This can drive people to finally take action, once they realize the issue causing their woe is treatable and they’ve gathered the courage to take steps towards that procedure.
You Want to Put It Behind You
Part of plastic surgery is putting the feature that you don’t like about yourself behind you. This doesn’t mean you’ll forget it, but it does mean you can get to a point where you don’t carry it with you all the time anymore. This is especially the case for procedures like labiaplasty. Thanks to plastic surgery, women who get this procedure done are able to make their vaginal issues a distant memory.
