Why Plastic Surgery?
As our lifespan continues to lengthen with advances in health care, our quality of life becomes more important with advancing age. At any given age we feel younger than our parents or grand-parents did and therefore it is quite reasonable to pursue treatment options to improve our quality of life.
Cosmetic Surgery aims to delay or reverse the age related changes or improve those features that contribute to a reduction in quality of life by their impact on the social or psychological well being or relationship with partner or family.
It is important that you examine carefully your reasons for undergoing Plastic Surgery. Plastic Surgery will not resolve any major life problems but should boost your confidence and self-esteem.
If you have Plastic Surgery to please someone else it will rarely be successful. If you are wishing to undergo Plastic Surgery, try to gauge if your expectations are realistic. Your surgeon will advise you as to what can be achieved.
You should consider your decision to undergo Plastic Surgery part of your plan to improve your quality of life, and also examine your Lifestyle, to ensure that your Lifestyle choices are compatible with your goal for a healthy, contented and fulfuling life.
Remember, a fully informed patient is a patient in control.
