Multiple Cosmetic Surgeries—At what point do I stop?

Cosmetic surgery can be a life-altering event. From the pain of past scars to the emotional baggage of insecurities, cosmetic surgery instills confidence in those who undergo each procedure.

After experiencing your first cosmetic surgery, you will notice a drastic difference in your appearance, attitude, and outlook on life. With a more positive view, you will find that it becomes easier to look to cosmetic surgery to meet emotional needs.

Cosmetic surgery is a benefit to those looking for improvements. For those who have gone through breast cancer, breast implants can give the proportional look you once had, and the confidence, too. On the other end of the spectrum, you might find yourself, or a friend, become addicted to cosmetic surgery. Multiple cosmetic surgeries are not bad, when done properly. Timing, recovery, and necessity are important to keep in mind.

Your body has very specific needs and regulations that multiple cosmetic surgeries can alter. Having multiple cosmetic surgeries over a short period of time can be harmful to your body. It is essential to consult with your doctor and discuss the various side effects of undergoing multiple surgeries in a short amount of time.

In addition to timing, it is imperative that your body gets the proper recovery it needs. Your doctor can discuss timing with you, but proper recovery is up to you. After multiple cosmetic surgeries, your body’s image alters. Of course, that is an obvious side effect of cosmetic surgery. But at what point should you stop? Cosmetic surgery is meant to meet the physical need of an unwanted appearance. This includes arm lifts, breast implants, rhinoplasty, botox, and other various cosmetic surgeries. If you find that your body is altered beyond recognition, it has become an unhealthy addiction. Those are the physical side effects of cosmetic surgeries.

Moderation is the key to healthy cosmetic surgeries. You want to live confidently, but at the same time, your confidence should not be solely based on your physical appearance. The point at which cosmetic surgery becomes too much is when you feel you need another procedure in order to feel good about yourself. That is the emotional side effect of cosmetic surgeries.

Cosmetic surgery should be given consideration before taking place. Because it changes your appearance, it is important that you feel confident in your decision to move forward with a cosmetic surgery. Once your first surgery is complete, remember that your true confidence comes from within, not from your appearance. Multiple cosmetic surgeries can give you the desired look you want, but after you receive what you initially wanted from surgery, it is time to stop. Because the beautiful transformations that come with cosmetic surgery boost your confidence, it is easy to become addicted to having work done. Remember, everything should be done in moderation.

Consult with your doctor and make sure that every cosmetic surgery you undergo is supported with intention. If your reasoning for surgery is habitual or dependency, it is time to stop.
