WHY ARE THERE MORE PEOPLE GETTING COSMETIC SURGERY
There are many reasons why a patient would want to get cosmetic surgery and plastic surgery. Most of them are very personal ones. Some do it to change a particular facial part or feature. The feature that they feel so unhappy about. Some go under the knife so that a younger version of themselves will look back as they look in a mirror. But plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery are very different things. The outcome may be the same, a changed, more improved facet, but one is meant to be pretty the other to be useful.
As with any form of surgery, cosmetically altering your looks present a risk. There will be pain and discomfort prior and after surgery. And remember that no minor can go under without their parent’s permission. But more than these concerns, any person considering cosmetic surgery needs to have a realistic talk with their surgeon.
Cosmetic Surgery VS Plastic Surgery
Cosmetic surgery in a word is ornamental in nature. The principles, processes and approach focuses on beautifying, increasing a patient’s looks. For it to be more proportionate, striking and symmetrical. Cosmetic surgery aims to improve a patient’s appearance through procedures for it to be more appealing. Face and body contouring, augmentation, rejuvenation; these are some of the procedures a person can ask to be done. Modifying parts in order to be more appealing. It is not uncommon that cosmetic surgery can improve the function of a feature like that of a nose lift actually improving the breathing of the patient by happy coincidence.
Plastic surgery, on the other hand, is an operation of a part of the body with the purpose of correcting or reconstructing that dysfunctional area. These are not performing as they should be, hence, needs to be corrected. These could be the result of birth defects, burns, traumas, accidents or disease of some sort.
Cosmetic surgery does not drastically change one’s life. But it does change how one faces everyday. Aligning your natural appearance to your desired one can change how you feel about yourself. Adding confidence and a general feeling of lightness. Advancements in the field have made cosmetic surgery more affordable and acceptable than it once was. Most patients undergoing cosmetic procedures think they owe it to themselves as part of their self care.
