Modern cosmetic surgery involves using new methods and progressive techniques designed to maximize natural-looking results while minimizing disruptions to patients’ busy lives. For many people, the benefits of cosmetic surgery are related to their reasons for considering the procedures. These reasons often involve a physical issue, or a psychological impression of the physical issue, that the patient hopes will be alleviated by changing or eliminating the physical issue. What does that mean exactly? The answer is best revealed by looking at the kinds of cosmetic surgery that are the most popular: breast augmentation, facelifts, and liposuction.
All of these procedures involve making a major physical change, and the reason for making this change is that the patient wants to change the way they feel about certain physical aspects of the body. This points to the two major kinds of benefits one can receive from having cosmetic surgery: physical benefits and emotional benefits.
Physical Benefits of Cosmetic Surgery
It surprises many people to learn that the physical benefits of cosmetic surgery are often immediate, even though a patient has to go through some healing after surgery. For example, say a woman gets breast augmentation surgery. She does not have to wait until she completely heals from the surgery to see the obvious physical benefit of the procedure. Her breast size has changed, and the physical change in her appearance is immediate. This is also true of liposuction and other forms of cosmetic surgery.
The physical benefits in one’s appearance increase after healing, and this is one reason modern cosmetic surgery seeks to reduce the recovery time as much as possible. Why? Because besides the fact that people like to get done with the surgery as quickly as they can, the sooner they recover, the sooner it enables them to enjoy the other major kind of benefit cosmetic surgery offers: the emotional one.
Emotional Benefits of Cosmetic Surgery
We should say as a kind of disclaimer that the emotional benefit of cosmetic surgery is not 100% guaranteed. If a person has exaggerated expectations for what cosmetic surgery can achieve, or perhaps unrealistic ideas about the extent to which their life will change after the surgery, then disappointment might be experienced.
However, for many people who have struggled with feeling badly about a physical aspect of their body they wish to change, adjusting or eliminating the physical aspect can bring considerable relief and better emotional well-being. Just as with the physical benefits, the emotional benefits are often immediate and dramatic.
