Why Do I Want A Procedure ?

There are a number of issues for which people choose to go under the knife. Whether it's to fix a condition or simply to improve a person's appearance, plastic surgery has increased in popularity over the years for a variety of reasons. Now, a new study suggests people could be opting for plastic surgery aimed at a little mood boost. Research published in Clinical Psychological Science reports that plastic surgery patients could experience more joy in life, a higher sense of satisfaction and greater self-esteem (1-3). However, few individuals can become obsessed with the way that they look and worry excessively about small, or imagined, flaws within their appearance leading to a known illness called Body Dysmorphia (4).

 

A Big Descision

Overall, there is a consensus that having a cosmetic procedure is a big decision, so it's important not to rush into anything. All procedures have some risks. If you're disappointed with the outcome, this can also have an impact on your emotional wellbeing. Some people look at a cosmetic procedure to solve life problems, or during difficult times in their lives. Do not assume that a cosmetic procedure will make everything better. How you feel about how you look is only one aspect of your wellbeing. Things like your lifestyle, social life, work and what you eat are also important (5).

Ask Yourself

If you're considering a cosmetic procedure, start by asking yourself:

  • What do I want to change and why do I want to have the procedure I'm considering?
    How long have I thought about this procedure?
    What's my current life situation? Am I expecting the procedure to influence my situation?
    Why am I thinking about a procedure now? What triggered it?
    Are there other ways I can achieve the changes I want?
    Am I expecting the procedure to change my life as well as my appearance?
    Do I want a cosmetic procedure for myself or to please someone else?
    Am I expecting the procedure to improve my relationship, social skills or job prospects?
    Can I afford the costs of the procedure and any future costs to maintain the effect?

The NHS, British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) and all other organisations which are concerned with cosmetic surgery highly recommend that a proper psychological assessment and support should be provided to all individuals seeking cosmetic surgery.

If you think that you ask yourself any of the above questions, please discuss them with your surgeon or clinician. ASET Hospital’s Emotional Well-being Team would offer you their utmost support before, during and after surgery or procedure. Our team wouldn’t take the decision on your behalf. Instead, they would support you to take the right decision even if that decision is not to have surgery or cosmetic procedure. They would also support you to deal with any emotional stress during the time of surgery. More importantly, they would support you to go through the post-op period, handle the dramatic change in facial/body appearance and cope with any unexpected surgical complications or less than favourite cosmetic results.
