Research shows that in 2016, nearly 13.7 million cosmetic surgery procedures were completed in the United States.
In other words, if you’re interested in plastic surgery to get rid of your physical insecurities, you’re not the only one. Here are six major reasons why people turn to plastic surgery.
Let’s dig in!
1. Plastic Surgeons Can Help to Boost Your Self-Confidence
The desire for more confidence is one of the biggest reasons why people turn to plastic surgeons.
According to research, the following are the most powerful and predictors of why people seek out plastic surgery:
- Body dissatisfaction
- Desire for a better physical appearance
- Influence of the media
- Teasing about certain body parts
In many cases, plastic surgery can make you more confident about the shape of your body and/or about how your face looks. In turn, this can make you much more outgoing and thus help you to live life to the fullest from a social perspective.
Research shows that more women than men pursue the services of plastic surgeons, and more younger men desire plastic surgery than older men do. But plastic surgery can be invaluable for both men and women alike, just as it can come in handy whether you’re in your 20s or in your 50s.
The desire to be more attractive is another major reason people turn to plastic surgeons.
Many plastic surgery procedures are designed to reverse aging’s signs. This is why facelifts are especially popular.
With the help of a plastic surgeon, you can be well on your way to looking more attractive and thus reaping the benefits that come with it — such as more love interests or even more job offers.
After all, research shows that attractiveness combined with a winning personality can lead to a higher salary for you.
This is yet another reason to depend on a plastic surgeon. Let’s say you suffered an earlobe injury while playing sports or because an earring got yanked out of your ear. Surgery involving the earlobe may help to correct your earlobe’s damage and thus restore its original appearance.
You might also want to undergo earlobe surgery if you would like to reverse the earring hole created years ago.
4. Healthier Weight
Are you suffering from health risks due to carrying extra weight around? It’s time to get healthy, and believe it or not, a plastic surgeon may be the key to making this happen.
Your plastic surgeon may be able to use a cutting-edge contouring procedure known as SculpSure to eradicate your unnecessary fat.
So, finally bid adieu to the excess fat in your arm, knee, thigh and even chin areas, for instance. With the helping hand — literally — of a plastic surgery, you can kiss your unlovely love handles, banana rolls and double chins goodbye and thus start living a healthier and happier life.
5. Skin Health
In addition to trimming excess fat, you may benefit from a plastic surgeon’s touch when it comes to your skin, too.
According to research, the majority of skin aging is caused by sun damage. Therefore, it’s no surprise that an increasing number of people are taking the use of sunscreen more seriously to protect the skin from damaging ultraviolet rays.
However, if you already have skin damage signs that are visible, plastic surgeons can help you to get rid of them — namely wrinkles.
Injections are a particularly popular way of getting rid of an aging, angry or tired look via a nonsurgical approach. These injections temporarily eliminate or reduce previous skin creasing and help to prevent brand-new skin creasing.
Note that no downtime is required for this treatment — another major perk of getting Botox injections — and the effect typically lasts about three months. At this point, you can simply repeat your Botox treatment as desired.
6. Feature Enhancement
Finally, you may want to undergo plastic surgery to enhance a particular feature. For instance, maybe you want to remove excess skin after losing a large amount of weight.
A plastic surgeon can help you to achieve a physique that is more toned through high-quality skin tightening. The result? You can finally feel more comfortable in your own skin, so to speak.
