It’s hard to tell these days who has had a cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure unless they flat out tell you. That is because surgical procedures have come a long way over the last 20 years or so. I remember seeing people 20+ years ago and by one look you could tell they had facial work done, or other types of procedures. Now, if they don’t tell you, you just don’t know.
What is Plastic Surgery?
Plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery is a procedure that alters your appearance in many different ways. Most people choose this route because they are unhappy with what they were born with while others choose it to feel better about themselves. Many who have had accidents or health issues that have changed their appearances also choose this route.
Types of Plastic Surgery.
There are many types of plastic surgery these days. If you have a body part, it can be altered with surgery. Face, lips, chin, cheeks, ears, nose, neck, breasts, tummy, arms, butt, etc. It pretty much depends on what you want, and finding a certified plastic surgeon who can help you achieve your end goal. You need to make sure you do your research and choose a qualified Dr. like Farrior Facial Plastic Surgery.
Why Choose to Have Plastic Surgery?
Growing up I knew nobody who had any plastic or cosmetic type surgeries. It was just people on TV that you would see about or read about in magazines. Now days, it’s everywhere and for a good reason too. Because we can! Yup, that is basically why people ultimately choose to alter their bodies, because they can. Like getting your ears pierced, or a tattoo, or any other body modification, it’s a personal choice and one you can make of your own free will.
For me, I have done a few things to alter my body and am proud of every single things I choose to do. I have never asked anyone’s opinion or really cared what they thought. I am happy and that is all that matters.
What Have I Had Done?
I have done some non surgical things like Botox, tattoos, piercings, waxing and laser hair removal. All things that I did because I like the end results. But, I also have had breast augmentation done, 3 times.
Yes, I said 3 times. My first surgery was back in 1998, and the Dr. messed up. I had a redo in 1999 and even though I was not happy I had to wait many years before I could afford or had time to have them redone. They were functional and looked good but I just wasn’t happy with the size.
I just had my 3rd surgery in August 2016, and love my size and look and feel. You can see the new me below. It does take finding a Dr. you gel with and feel confident in that they know what they are doing. My first surgery I didn’t know to research and really, there were not many people I knew that had breast implants or many Dr’s in my area that did it.
Before and After.
As with any surgery, you need to do your homework. Research groups, websites, talk to others, etc. Knowing what you are getting into as far as healing and complications and the final outcome are all very important things to know before you get on the table.
Make your consult appointment with the Dr’s you feel are right for what you are looking to have done. Talk over everything with the Dr. As as many questions as you can because the more informed you are and the more info you give your Dr. the better for you both.
Make a plan before your surgery to have meals prepped, the house clean, laundry done, and enough essentials on hand so you don’t have to leave the house or rely on others to tend to you 24/7.
Find someone who will bring you to the surgery center and home after the procedure. Maybe they can even stay a couple nights/days with you. You will also need someone to bring you in for your follow up appointments until you are given the green light to drive.
After surgery, rest! I can’t stress that enough. A body heals best at rest and so if you want to have the best results listen to your Dr., take time for you and your body to heal.
Plastic surgery is something more and more people choose to do these days. It’s more talked about, and more accepted. Never be ashamed or feel bad for choosing to be the best you you can be. It’s your body, your money and your decision.
