A New York Plastic Surgery Reality Check
If you’re a woman considering plastic surgery, get ready to be insulted.
According to News24, a South African online news site, there are four leading reasons why women elect cosmetic surgery, and we’re here to tell you they are not flattering. Let’s take a look.
Self Esteem Challenges
The author of the article posted on News24 says that the first reason women choose cosmetic surgery is poor self-esteem. The typical gal compares herself to women she sees in the media and believes, “plastic surgery is her only hope.”
Trying to Make Someone Else Happy
When women notice their partners admiring someone else’s form, it sends them off to a cosmetic surgeon for breast enlargement. Then, when that doesn’t stop the wandering eye, they elect surgery again for butt augmentation.
Everyone is Doing It
Many gals decide to go under the knife because their friends are doing it. Women show off their enhanced boobs as if they were a new pair of Jimmy Choos, according to this article, and tell how much they enjoy being stared at. That’s enough to send someone in search of those same boobs.
So, almost all women know others who bemoan their excess belly fat. They try diets, they even become bulimic (and depressed), says News24, but nothing works. So they elect liposuction.
Let’s come back to the real world. Allow us to assure you—in our 30 years of performing plastic surgery in New York, these are not the reasons most women come in to talk with us about a procedure. In fact, if we discover a prospective patient has any of these ideas or objectives as key motivators, we’ll suggest she seek counseling instead of cosmetic surgery.
Some of the leading objectives our New York plastic surgery candidates mention include:
• Wanting to even out body proportions
• Rejuvenating their appearance to look as youthful as they feel
• Helping themselves out where Mother Nature goofed
• Getting a confidence boost after pregnancy or in the workplace
Perhaps things are different in South Africa, though we doubt it. If you want to check it out for yourself, you can find the original News24 article here.
The online property posts articles from outside contributors, then says its vision is “To provide innovative multi-platform media products and services created by passionate people to enrich the lives of our customers around the world.” Maybe News24 should give contributed articles a good read before posting them.
