Why Have Plastic Surgery?

Have you ever considered having plastic surgery? Is your reason for having plastic surgery to improve bodily functions caused by developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection or disease, or to improve appearance or self-esteem? This is obviously a personal choice and there probably isn’t a right or wrong answer.

Having plastic surgery to improve bodily functions can be a good option for people who are comfortable with reconstructive surgery and those who can afford it. What’s also helpful is that these types of procedures are covered by most health insurance plans.

For those having surgery to improve their looks, I believe there is a fine line between those who want to improve their self-esteem and those who want to fit what is “ideal” or for other people’s desires. Self-esteem can impact many aspects of life from dating to how you view yourself in public or in the work place. If minor surgery can be performed to reshape a normal structure of the body and improve a person’s positive feelings of their self-worth, that person can be more confident in how she or he interacts with people, manages their personal relationships or how they perform in the work place. If, on the other hand, someone decides to have cosmetic surgery to fulfill another person’s desires, they should really rethink having the procedure done as well as question the other person’s motives.
