There’s a lot of stigma that accompanies getting any sort of plastic surgery done. Including that it’s only for women and that typically only the self-indulgent will opt to pay that kind of money to have their face or body reworked. However, those types of stigmas are far from the truth. And as the advancements in plastic surgeries have progressed over the past few years, more and more people who once vowed that they would never go under the knife are now signing up themselves. But why?
Life is Just Too Short
Simply put: life is too short not to enjoy every moment that you can. This approach is leading many individuals to go under the knife to fix things about their bodies that they have struggled with for years. From opting to get a rhinoplasty, to simply wanting to undergo a coolsculpting procedure, more and more individuals are embracing the mentality that if it makes you happy, why not do it?
It’s Not Always Permanent
Another reason why people are fleeing to things like facial fillers more and more is because they aren’t exactly permanent— meaning that in order for you to keep that taut forehead, you have to have injections done every 4-6 months. Or if you want that sexy new pout, you might have to get lip injections every 9 months or so. This whole notion of things not being permanent, is fairly freeing to a lot of individuals and leaves them feeling like they can have control over their appearance without too much of a commitment.
Men Can Hop On This Wagon Too
More and more, men are seeking plastic surgery to help accentuate and enhance their personal appearance. As an industry that used to predominantly consist of female patients, more men are realizing the added benefits of plastic surgery. For instance, more men are undergoing Coolsculpting in order to melt away the extra fat around their middle and sides, to give them a leaner and meaner looking physique.
