Effects of Plastic Surgery

Just in case you were unsure of the effects of plastic surgery, this can be a pretty good guide to some of the things that you might not expect after having had surgery…and some things that you probably already knew but haven’t thought all that much about.

Basically having plastic surgery will affect you in three major ways.  The first and possible least important is the effect it will have on your pocketbook.  Plastic surgery, whether it is a face lift, breast enhancement or liposuction will take a hefty chunk out of your wallet.  Now of course how this will effect you depends on how much disposable income you have.  For instance, you may have to take out a loan in order to afford your new look, this will be a little bit of a strain on your finances, but it will also be a reminder of what you had done and you might even not take your new look for granted for quite as long.

There is also the physical effect that having plastic surgery will have on you.  Having plastic surgery is a lot like getting beaten up.  Most doctors will be up front about this…and if they aren’t you probably should start looking for another doctor anyway.  When you leave the hospital the chances are you will look like somebody took a two-by-four to your face. But of course the end result will be something quite wonderful.

But, don’t be surprised if there are some alternative side effects that you had not counted on.  For instance, if you have young children this could be a fairly traumatic experience for them.  When you do get back from the hospital they will be worried that something very terrible has happen to their mother.  If this is the case you need someone, maybe not yourself, to explain to them what happened and that everything will be all right.

There is also the factor that your children might not fully recognize you if you have radical surgery like a major rhinoplasty or a  facelift.  If this is the case, you need to explain to them, with great caution, exactly what plastic surgery is and what you hope to accomplish by having a procedure done.

Lastly, you might also want to consider the emotional and social backlash that some people experience when they undergo plastic surgery.  This is not a big deal for some, but you and rest assured that people will be talking behind your back when they start to get suspicious that you have had some work done.

Your best bet is to tackle this head on.  If you are nervous about people’s reactions, spearhead this by telling people in advance what you are having done, and try to be confident and self effacing about it.  If you do not tell people in advance you might want to be honest with people if they start to ask questions.  Plastic surgery is no longer taboo and you have nothing to be ashamed of.
