3 Wrong Reasons to Get Cosmetic Surgery
Since the early 2000’s, the Korean medical tourism industry has seen a growing popularity in Asia. It is so popular a destination now for girls to have fun and get rejuvenated.
So, you’ve probably already heard about the best destinations in Asia to get cosmetic surgery, or the before and after care tips required for say double eyelid surgery, one of the trendiest procedures in Seoul’s Gangnam plastic surgery practices. But, when is the best time or situation to even consider cosmetic procedures and when is getting cosmetic procedures a sensible investment?
The most common reason why someone chooses to go under the knife includes:
(a) I want to look like this movie star.
(b) My nose still isn’t perfect.
(c) People will love me.
Why are we talking about this, today? We want to remind anyone who is considering this investment, to also consider the potential pitfalls.
There is really no “perfect” nose aside from grotesque deformities. For aesthetic reasons and more importantly, medical ones, too. Okay, maybe the next revision rhinoplasty may just make it look more like what you had envisioned it to be. But what if it doesn’t? This is a reality for many, as evidenced by a study on cosmetic rhinoplasty and its revision rates. In this case, it may be helpful to bring along images for reference to the surgeon. During discussion and consultation – see if your expectations for the surgery’s results are doable and realistic.
Who hasn’t heard of Hang Mioku and her tragic case of cosmetic surgery gone wrong where enough just wasn’t enough? This a potential pitfall for reason B – not being satisfied after surgery, even if the surgery was considered a success, as in the picture shown to the surgeon was what you got at the end.
Finally, the most tragic of all reasons to get cosmetic surgery is the belief that it will make you loveable as a person. It is true that physical appearance is harshly appraised in modern South Korean society, where talent and education is put second place during interviews. A pretty face is attractive, but an ugly personality and character is not. You’ve heard that line a lot. Think about the time where you’ve felt the most free and happy. Was it when someone complimented on your hair, or their showing appreciation for your words and deeds?
Also, an ugly personality does not necessarily mean an ugly heart. Do you skimp on meals to invest towards cosmetic surgery? What we mean here is, we’re not able to perform at our best when we lack energy! That’s your health you’re sacrificing! Remember that you’ll definitely need to be in good health to even undergo surgery!
