The decision to have cosmetic surgery is more than just skin deep. Self-image means different things to different people. You may feel that cosmetic surgery could change the way you feel about your relationship with others. As well as changing your perception of yourself to give you confidence, plastic surgery can be functional and help you achieve your ideal self.
Planning your long-term goals with your consultant, and researching the procedure, will reinforce whether surgery is the right option for you. Surgery is not without risk so you should be sure in your reasons for wanting to go ahead. It is important that your expectations are realistic and that the advantages to you always outweigh the risk of surgery.
Cosmetic surgery should always result in changing your life for the better.
