Plastic Surgery - Is It Right for Me?


Plastic surgery may be right for you if you have a particular feature you want to make more appealing or if you are looking to reconstruct your appearance as a result of a birth defect or an issue caused from an injury. Most people who turn to plastic surgery to improve their appearance do so because there is something in particular about their appearance they want to enhance. Those who turn to plastic surgery to correct a defect do so with the goal of making the damaged part of their face or body look and function normally again. There are many forms of plastic surgery that you may be currently considering.

Breast Augmentation (or Breast Job) Breast augmentation is among the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery performed today. Some women have breast augmentation procedures performed because they wish to improve their outer appearance as well as improve their self-esteem. Others may turn to breast augmentation following a surgical procedure like a mastectomy. For these individuals, breast reconstruction with augmentation restores balance to their body and gives them a healthy appearance that allows them to maintain their sense of confidence in social settings as well as maintain their sense of self-esteem.

Rhinoplasty Rhinoplasty (or nose job) is another form of cosmetic surgery that can be done to repair damage or to enhance one’s appearance. Many turn to rhinoplasty because they have difficulties breathing. When rhinoplasty is used to correct functional defects, there is usually an improvement in the appearance of the person's nose as well. After rhinoplasty surgery, many patients can use their nose to its full potential for the first time. Individuals who have a nose that is too large, too small, or crooked are often surprised at how making small changes in the appearance of their nose can have a dramatic impact on the overall look of their face. Since the nose sits in the center of the face, its purpose is to bring harmony to the other facial features. If a person’s nose is too big or too small, it could affect the way that their chin looks in respect to the rest of their face. A slightly crooked nose could make a person who would otherwise be deemed attractive seem less attractive.
