Do you really need cosmetic surgery?

A recent study by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery shows that the majority of people considering cosmetic surgery don't want to radically alter their appearance. Rather, they are seeking to they just want to enhance their appearance with natural-looking improvements. In other words: they don't want a total nose job, but a simple tuck that conceals excess skin flaps under the chin would be nice.

It's an interesting trend in cosmetic surgery, but it's also educational in the sense that these same results can typically be achieved without cosmetic surgery in the first place: regular physical exercise and a total diet makeover can subtract years from a person's apparent age while hiding excess skin flaps, too! In fact, there's nothing that makes you look better than regular physical fitness and following an outstanding nutritional strategy.

On the food and diet side, that means avoiding all processed foods and eating only natural, whole foods like fruits, vegetables, organic meats and whole grains. It also means giving yourself the nutritional supplements necessary to provide your body with all the vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, antioxidants and other phytochemicals necessary to keep you healthy from the inside out.

Cosmetic surgery may be the shortcut, no doubt, but for the long haul, nothing beats diet and exercise for looking youthful, healthy and energetic. Because, after all, it's not just for looks. You are youthful, healthy and energetic when you eat right and exercise regularly.

Cosmetic Surgery Options

Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape structures of the body and improve a person’s appearance. A variety of techniques and procedures are used including facelift, eyelift, body contouring, dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing, implants and liposuction. Injections of botulinum toxin Type A (available in Australia as Botox® or Dysport®) or soft tissue (dermal) fillers, such as collagen or fat, may also be used.

Cosmetic surgery is different to reconstructive surgery, which is used to improve or correct areas of the body damaged by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma or injury, infection, tumours or disease.

Like any form of surgery, cosmetic procedures need recovery time, healing and proper care. Risks include problems related to anaesthesia and surgery, excessive bleeding, infection, scarring and failure to heal.

Choose a qualified and experienced surgeon and ask questions about possible side effects and complications. Think carefully about your expectations – in some cases, the results are not what the person anticipated.

Think about your expectations


Before you opt for cosmetic surgery, it is important to think carefully about your expectations and get a full explanation of the anticipated results. Ask about possible side effects or complications and what you can expect after the procedure. The technique or procedure may improve your appearance and self-confidence, but it won’t necessarily deliver your ‘ideal’ body image or change your life.

Don’t be swayed by advertisements that promise amazing results – if they sound too good to be true, they probably are. Think about the impact on your financial situation, as cosmetic surgery does not usually qualify for rebates from Medicare or private health insurance companies. You should have a ‘cooling off’ period after attending your first consultation. This will give you time to think about your decisions.

Choose a qualified plastic surgeon

Choose a qualified and reputable plastic surgeon, over a cosmetic surgeon. Ask them about their specific training and experience in performing the procedure. You may want to ask your local GP for a referral to a suitable professional or hospital.

It’s natural to feel some anxiety, whether it’s excitement for your anticipated new look or stress about the operation. Don’t be shy about discussing these feelings with your plastic surgeon. If you don’t feel comfortable with the surgeon, seek a second opinion.
