Most people get plastic surgery for the same reason: There is something about their appearance that they would like to change. But there are several reasons why someone might talk themselves out of plastic surgery.
It can sometimes take a few months (or even years) to work yourself up to finally taking the big step and booking a procedure. Leading up to that, there is often daydreaming and researching things online. There may also be a few false starts where you are this close to booking an appointment, but change your mind at the last minute.
This is an incredibly important and personal decision. You deserve to take all of the time you need. But if any of these things are stopping you from getting the surgery you’ve always wanted, you should keep reading.
1. The Fear of a Big Change
Even if you truly want a big change, it can still be scary when the time comes to commit to it. You’re very aware of how one surgery can change your entire look in a matter of hours. Even if that’s exactly what you’ve always wanted.
Change can be scary. That’s not always a bad thing. In a lot of cases, it simply means you appreciate the seriousness of the decision, and you’re taking things seriously.
It’s important to know that the overwhelming majority of people that get plastic surgery are ecstatic with the results. They feel better about themselves. The stress from their long-standing insecurities is gone.
The odds are very good that it’s going to be a change for the better, and one you will never look back from.
2. Fear of the Price
You may also just assume that plastic surgery is not attainable for you. It’s just for millionaires and celebrities, right? Wrong.
Plastic surgery is actually surprisingly affordable. There may also be a non-surgical and more affordable alternative. For example, if you’re looking for a rhinoplasty procedure, you could also consider the non-surgical 5-minute nose job using dermal fillers. Or, if you’re thinking about a liposuction procedure, you could also get great results from something like a VelaShape treatment.
3. Fear of the Downtime or Recovery
Or it’s possible that you’re worried about what the recovery process will look like, and of course, that’s fair.
If you’re reading this blog today, the odds are pretty good that you think that you may have a new opportunity to get surgery because you’re currently working from home. And you wouldn’t be alone.
In fact, the plastic surgery industry is in the middle of a mini-boom because of the current work-from-home-world. In fact, a recent survey of facial plastic surgeons revealed that about 70% of them have experienced an increase in business during the COVID-19 lockdown. And another 83% of them attributed this growth to their customers’ new ability to recover while working from home, without using any vacation days.
We hope you found this blog very helpful. Again, this is a very important decision, and you deserve to take as much time as you need. However, if any of these things were holding you back, it could be time to move forward.
