Have you been thinking about having a cosmetic procedure done? Perhaps you feel like this is something most people would never consider doing. It actually may surprise you that plastic surgery has been on the rise, especially in the last decade. Check out some of these statistics:

  • Breast augmentation has increased by 41% in the previous ten years
  • More than 129,000 tummy tucks were completed in 2017
  • Over 7 million people have elected a form of Botox in the last decade

Wow! That’s a lot of people. Do you know what this means? Cosmetic procedures are incredibly common! More and more people are interested in such procedures because innovative technology has improved methods that yield beautiful results with less downtime.

Why Do People Have Plastic Surgery?

There are so many reasons that a person may elect to have a procedure to enhance their appearance. Each reason is as unique as the patient having the operation. However, here are a few of the most common reasons people make this choice.

Mommy Makeover

Pregnancy is a beautiful experience, but it does leave lasting impacts on the body. For some women, stretch marks, volume loss in the breasts, or loose sagging skin on the abdomen can really impact their self-esteem. Instead of remaining unhappy, they do something about it. There are surgeons that specialize specifically in Mommy Makeover procedures (namely breast augmentation and tummy tucks) that can help you throughout every phase of the process.

Combat Signs of Aging

With age comes wisdom and self-awareness, but also fine lines and wrinkles. There are numerous cosmetic procedures that help reduce the signs of aging and leave patients looking and feeling their best. Don’t worry; the results look absolutely natural. A skilled surgeon will ensure that you don’t look like you’ve “had something done.” You’ll simply look refreshed and youthful.

Address Deformities

Not all plastic surgery is designed for appearance purposes only. For some people, their body parts simply aren’t developed properly. This can have a significant impact on a person’s life in both a physical and emotional sense. There are numerous plastic surgery options for individuals who wish to address deformities so they can live life to the absolute fullest.

Procedures After Weight Loss

Losing a significant amount of weight is not easy, and it should be celebrated. However, for some people, the loose and sagging skin that remains can make it difficult to be proud of your success. Plastic surgery can remove excess skin and address other areas of concern (such as breasts or target fat removal) to help you finish up those loose ends created by weight loss.


There is such thing as medically necessary plastic surgery. This is when an operation is performed to reconstruct missing body parts. This may happen in the event of an accident or because of cancer.  These types of procedures should be conducted by a skilled professional that can discuss options and realistic outcomes for each procedure.

Is Plastic Surgery Right for You?

In the end, it is up to you if you want to have plastic surgery. While your reasons are your own, just be aware that many people have been exactly where you are. The best way to ease some of those concerns is to discuss them with an esteemed plastic surgeon. You’ll be amazed at how quickly your fears will go away once you see just how many people have the same goals that you do!
