The term “plastic surgery” covers a group of procedures that are designed to change the shape of specific body parts, improve physical appearance or boost a person’s self-esteem. A person having plastic surgery must have a healthy psychological attitude and realistic expectations of what cosmetic procedures can and cannot do. Am I an Appropriate Candidate for Plastic Surgery? If you’re considering plastic surgery, you must complete an honest self-examination first. Ask yourself what is driving you to want the surgery, what your goals are, and what your expectations of plastic surgery really are. Plastic surgery candidates come in two groups. The first group is people who have a positive and strong self-image, but still have concerns about a specific physical characteristic and want that feature changed or improved. After surgery, these patients have the same positive self-image they had coming into the procedure. The second candidate group is people who have cosmetic flaws or defects that have negatively impacted their self-esteem over time. Post-surgery, these patients adjust to their new appearance, and their self-image grows as a result. In these cases, the results are often dramatic. It’s important to note cosmetic procedures change a person’s physical appearance, so they can increase self-esteem. Patients who go into plastic surgery believing the procedure will change how other people view them often end up disappointed. It’s necessary to remember that cosmetic procedures will not change anyone but you.
