1. Why some people want to change their look by plastic surgery?

“I especially wanted to identify the psychological and social factors that could be associated with one’s interest in undergoing cosmetic surgery,” says Jávo.

She sent a comprehensive questionnaire to 3500 women aged 18 to 35 years who live in Norway’s three most northerly counties of Nordland, Troms and Finnmark. Fully 1862 women responded to the survey. From these responses, Jávo could see that factors such as lower education, poorer body image and “body dysmorphic disorder”-like symptoms could be used to predict which women would consider cosmetic surgery.

“We also saw that women who had been bullied about their appearance wanted some kind of intervention,” she said.

Her analysis shows that a surgical tummy tuck was particularly attractive to women who had borne children

2.Are there any cons of plastic surgery? What are the risks?

Think carefully about the decision to have cosmetic surgery. Surgery always involves some risk. The risks depend on your health and the type of procedure you have. They can range from slight scarring to infection and even death. Serious problems are rare, but they can occur.

Also, there is no guarantee that you will get the results you want. Results are lasting unless you have surgery again. Talk with your doctor about the possible risks and benefits of the surgery.

3.Is there any consequences after changing one's looking?

Patients opting for plastic surgery, especially cosmetic surgery, should be very well aware that the results they obtain might differ from what they were expecting before they went under the knife. Sometimes these procedures can leave behind scars that may not go away with time. This can have a lasting psychological effect on patients, plunging them into depression. People suffer from intense regret and anger toward themselves and the doctor for a procedure gone horribly wrong, not to mention embarrassment and criticism they might face from friends and family.

It has been observed that many individuals undergoing plastic surgery tend to suffer from an obsession with their look. This can cause an addiction and may impel them to undergo plastic surgery several times. A common psychological disorder in this regard is known as 'body dysmorphic disorder', where people develop such a distorted and weird perception of their body that they can't be satisfied with any look.

But sometimes plastic surgery becomes inevitable, especially for reconstructing damaged parts of the body caused by burns, accidents or any inborn abnormality. Before opting for plastic surgery, patients must be well aware of every risk that is associated with this procedure. It is very essential to discuss every aspect of the method and the cost involved with your plastic surgeon. It is also advisable to research properly before selecting a qualified and certified surgeon. Look for his professional records, affiliations, medical accreditation, etc. to ensure you are in safe hands. Follow the instructions of your surgeon to avoid any surgical and post-surgical complication and be mentally strong and prepared to handle the repercussions, if any.
