What is a good motivation to undergo plastic surgery?



Modern times are quite difficult for people with a less than perfect appearance. Aesthetic flaws are not easily tolerated these days, and people confronted with them can even face bullying and other severe discomforts. This is one of the reasons why plastic surgery has seen such an increase in demand over the last few decades, also associated with the minimal risks. 

Having breasts that are overly small, large or saggy, having a buttock that is not proportionate to the rest of the body, having a shape of the body that is not overly feminine or alluring can lead to an emotional complex and even a low quality of life in some cases.

Plastic surgery can correct imperfections, improve the physical appearance of the patient, and increase the level of self-esteem and self-confidence. While more and more people resort to plastic surgery nowadays, not all of them have a good motivation to do so. In this article, we will discuss what is good motivation to undergo plastic surgery.


  1.   Feel beautiful

It is a normal desire to look and feel beautiful, so this is one of the main motivations people use when resorting to plastic surgery. It is a valid motivation; however, your request for plastic surgery should be assessed and validated by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon. 

If your breasts are not developed enough to complement your anatomy or if after pregnancy and breastfeeding, the shape of your breasts has been compromised and now they look like empty, droopy bags, it is only natural to choose to undergo plastic surgery to get a beautiful appearance of the breasts once again. 

Our society defines beauty in quite clear terms, and each woman knows her own definition of beauty. For many of us, it is about having a proportionate body with features that are harmonious and complement each other. When one feature of the body is overly developed or underdeveloped, the whole aesthetic appearance of the body can be altered. 

The unsightly appearance of the body can occur over time due to the effects of different factors such as weight fluctuations and even the natural aging process. At the same time, certain imperfections of the body can be congenital or occur as a result of an accident or trauma. Some people will resort to plastic surgery to correct these imperfections in an attempt to regain their beautiful appearance. 

Enhancing certain features of the body can also be motivated by this factor. We all associate big, round, full breasts with femininity and sex appeal, so women who don’t have them will want to undergo surgery to get the breasts of their dreams. 

The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing plastic surgery to feel beautiful is that perfection is not in the scope of aesthetic surgery. These procedures are performed to help patients look their best, not to reach perfection as this is not possible. Having realistic expectations is also important. In other words, it is not a good idea to believe that your whole life and physical appearance will change just because you had liposuction. Some procedures target the body as a whole, while others will just affect certain features. Keep this in mind when scheduling your procedure and ask the plastic surgeon about the final results when going for the initial consultation. 


  1.   Feel younger

There is a tremendous amount of pressure on us nowadays always to look young. Youth is associated with vitality, productivity, and even success, especially if we are talking about certain  professional fields. Nowadays it is easier than ever to keep a youthful appearance, especially if you can resort to plastic surgery. The procedures performed nowadays to help patients feel and look younger don’t target just the facial area, but also the body. The signs of aging are always present on the body too, not just the face, so it is important to correct them as well. 

Common signs of aging on the body are saggy skin and adipose deposits that are difficult to get rid of. For example, even people who are fit and active can develop with aging fat pockets around the midline. This is a common occurrence for both men and women. These fat deposits ruin the beautiful contour of the body and make it look unsightly. Losing the shape and contours of the body is something we associated with old age, just as much as saggy skin. Saggy skin can cause an unappealing appearance of the tummy, arms, legs, and even the breasts. Many women who are after a certain age know fully well that the appearance and shape of the breasts change with the passing of time. Breasts that used to be perky and full end up being saggy on the chest wall. 

Plastic surgery offers different procedures to correct saggy skin. In a vast majority of cases, these are lifting procedures such as the breast lift, butt lift, arm lift, thigh lift, and also the tummy tuck. For patients confronted with thick adipose tissue on different areas of the body, liposuction can be performed as well.

For patients resorting to plastic surgery to regain a more youthful appearance of the body, it is important to understand that plastic surgery can’t stop time. This means that after the procedure, you will have a more youthful appearance compared to people of your age who didn’t have surgery; however, the appearance of your body will be once again affected by the factors that initially caused its unsightly appearance. This means that if you undergo a breast lift in your late 40s, you might need another procedure performed a decade or more later to sustain the beautiful appearance of your breasts. 

To be able to sustain the results for as long as possible, the plastic surgeon will provide you with a list of things to do and things to avoid. Generally speaking, avoiding weight fluctuations is important, and also other habits such as smoking can make all the difference and help you keep a youthful appearance for longer. 


  1.   Feel complete

Plastic surgery can also help patients whose appearance was affected by trauma or accidents. These are the patients that resort to plastic surgery to feel complete once again. We are talking  about women who have lost a breast to mastectomy and who can get a new breast with the help of plastic surgery. 

However, there are other patients who suffer due to the underdevelopment of certain areas of the body such as the buttocks. When the buttocks are very small or look like they don’t even exist, it can be difficult for both men and women to be proud of their appearance and content with it. This is the reason why fat transfer is one of the most popular procedures performed on the buttocks for women nowadays. At the same time, more and more men resort to butt implant surgery to get a butt that is more proportionate to the rest of their body. Many patients declare that they haven’t felt complete until after undergoing plastic surgery. 

This feeling of something missing can trigger emotional complexes before the procedure. So if the patient’s life is affected in different ways, the recommendation is to get plastic surgery to correct the imperfection that is bothering you. 



Having good motivation and reasons to undergo plastic surgery is important not only for the success of your procedure but also your well-being. Undergoing plastic surgery should be a completely personal decision taken only after being fully aware of all the pros and cons and when you are completely comfortable with the plastic surgeon you have selected to perform the procedure. 

A good motivation to undergo plastic surgery is the desire to feel beautiful, young or complete. When asked, these are the reasons most patients interested in undergoing aesthetic procedures talk about. The desire to look beautiful is normal in a society with high beauty standards, and the same goes for feeling young. Nowadays people live longer, and they can start a new family or even a new career late in life. At the same time, there are patients who feel much younger than they look and want to resort to plastic surgery to harmonize their feelings with the physical appearance of their body.

Make sure to discuss your motivation to undergo plastic surgery with the surgeon during the initial consultation.
