We are fortunate to live in a society of modern plastic and cosmetic surgery where men and women are free to make changes and feel better about themselves. The increase in the number of procedures performed annually shows that cosmetic surgery has definitely become more acceptable.
No doubt, eating right and exercising regularly will benefit to the healthy and energetic you. However, we still have that excessive cellulite that just will not go away, a face which no longer goes along with that energetic, enthusiastic and confident person. Sagging jowls and a nose which is just not in proportion with the rest of the face, not to mention breasts which may be too large or small.
We continue to diet, colour our hair, whiten our teeth, get facials and fake fingernails. We spend money on over-the-counter skin-care products, pop vitamins and take daily hormone supplements. Hire personal trainers, get hair implants and take Viagra, all these things to look better and feel younger. Yet so many of us hesitate at the prospect of reaching any of these goals through cosmetic surgery.
For some people they still have a dim view of cosmetic surgery, seeing it as frivolous, self-indulgent or vain. They may be reluctant to have a cosmetic procedure because they feel or others will argue about the need to accept aging and to feel comfortable with wrinkles, dark spots and sagging jowls.
Consequently, life changes often motivate people to take control of their looks. For example, a job crisis, with increased pressure not only to perform, but also to look more polished and youthful. Another life change would be following a break-up. We want to feel better and look fresh so we can face the world anew. This is not to say that beauty will provide happiness, make someone a kind person or maintain or repair a relationship. But it can improve physical appearance thus psychologically change a person, it can restore energy and optimism.
Therefore, eliminating bags from under your eyes or getting rid of those embarrassing saddlebags so that you can wear fitted pants. Or for men who grow goatees to cover up a weak chin, and for those who are unhappy with their midsection, there is a solution to your problem.
And the problem for most people is they do not want to radically alter their appearance, they just want natural-looking improvements, and cosmetic surgery’s aim is only to improve one’s appearance.
So, is it really about being vain to look or feel more pleasing and youthful? Perhaps, to some, but it is your body and your decision.
