Okay, so the title of this post may appear to suggest that I’ve totally lost my mind and that I’m pretty much going against everything I stand for, but I believe everyone’s case is different and should be given the tailored attention to detail it deserves, so yes, there are indeed some instances – many instances in fact, in which you shouldn’t feel guilty about getting some cosmetic surgery done. Of course having said that this does suggest that any and all cosmetic surgery shouldn’t induce feelings of guilt, but either way, once you’ve gone under the knife then it’s something which you can’t undo, so naturally once you’ve reached a stage where you feel as if this is exactly what you want to do, you obviously have some solid grounds for your decision.
So I’m going to walk you through some of these instances in which you really shouldn’t feel guilty about going under the knife, whether it is indeed for some enhancements in your appearances or if it’s more out of a matter of need.
You’ve exhausted all natural avenues
The cosmetic surgery field of the greater medical field has come a long way, in the same way that the medical field as a whole has advanced to levels which will make you wonder just how it must have been in the misty days of yore. Consequently, the results of having gone under the knife for some cosmetic work can in some instances get as close to appearing to be natural as is possible, unlike what you often see in those shows of people for whom their cosmetic work has gone a bit too far or gone wrong in some way.
Things are much, much safer these days and if anything should go wrong it would be more as a result of not fully disclosing any potential risk factors on your part. So for example, if you decide that no amount of work in the gym as a more “natural” avenue to pursue can reduce the amount of belly fat you have, you would naturally look towards cosmetic or reconstructive surgery for a solution. Your responsibility thereof however would come in the form of relaying to the medical professional truthfully what your medical history entails. There’s a reason why you get asked questions such as whether or not you’re on any other medication at the time or if you’ve been on some over the past few years.
So be honest and forthcoming and you should have a safe procedure with no complications.
An illness or injury has severely altered your body
Okay, so the likes of Nina S. Naidu, MD FACS will naturally and justifiably classify cosmetic surgery as falling under the umbrella of plastic and reconstructive surgery, but there is definitely a difference between pure cosmetic surgery (visual enhancements) and reconstructive surgery, the latter of which you should never feel guilty about under any circumstances. You might have been involved in an accident for example or you might have suffered a severe illness which has disfigured a certain part of your body you seek to have restored to its former, natural state, in which case you should definitely not feel guilty, at all.
