Cosmetic surgery has become a very popular anti-aging option for men and women in Alpharetta, Atlanta, Brookhaven, Buckhead, Cumming, Dunwoody, Johns Creek, Gwinnett, Roswell, and Sandy Springs. Offering solutions to lines, wrinkles, unwanted fat and less than perfect features, cosmetic surgery seems to be the magic solution that everyone wants. As you consider cosmetic procedures, Dr. Gerry L. Sotomayor recommends that you carefully consider weigh your options before deciding that cosmetic surgery is right for you.
A 228% Increase in Cosmetic Surgery Procedures
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery estimates that cosmetic procedures have seen a 228% increase since 1997 accounting for almost 7,000,000 procedures since 2002. Cosmetic surgery was once considered a beauty option for women, but more and more men are seeking cosmetic surgery to rejuvenate their appearances.
The Key Factor in Choosing Cosmetic Surgery
The most important aspect of pursuing cosmetic surgery is to have realistic expectations. A cosmetic surgeon needs far more than just surgical skills and an understanding of anatomical structures. Today’s cosmetic surgeons also have to evaluate their patients to determine the underlying motivation behind their choices for cosmetic surgery. You not only have to be realistic about how your appearance will change, but you also have to consider that cosmetic surgery may do little to improve the way you feel about yourself. You should also be reasonable about the significance of your flaws. A small, light mole, for example, does not necessarily make you unattractive.
Another trend in cosmetic surgery is ensuring that men and women achieve “age appropriate” results. The procedures are not intended to make you look like a twentysomething if you are in your 40s, 50s or 60s. If this is your reasoning behind having cosmetic surgery, you may want to reconsider.
If you have a healthy and positive perspective of cosmetic surgery, you can achieve an improved appearance that also benefits you emotionally. You may feel more confident about how you look, and therefore be more at ease in social settings. Anti-aging treatments can make you look your age rather than looking 10 years older. In today’s professional environment, men and women with years of experience can be seen as outdated or obsolete if their appearances reflect being tired, angry or frustrated.
