Phuket cosmetic surgery – Reconstructive versus Vanity

Phuket cosmetic surgery – Reconstructive versus Vanity

Phuket cosmetic surgery

Cosmetic surgery is an elective operation that alters or enhances a part of your face or body that you want to change.  It has only recently become acceptable and popular.  It has taken a while for people to become comfortable with this type of surgery.

When I first heard about Phuket Cosmetic Surgery all I knew about it was that TV personalities were trying to delay the effects of aging, or models who wanted to change the size of their stomach, breasts, or other body parts because they see it done so easily on TV. Women who wanted to have lips like Angelina Jolie or breasts like Pamela Anderson were what I came to associate with Cosmetic Surgery.  There is no physical or medical reason to have the procedure; it is a lifestyle choice for many people.  Vanity – excessive pride in or admiration of one’s own appearance or achievements was the common image of Cosmetic Surgery.  That was my opinion 10 years ago.  I’m guilty.  I am sure there are still a lot of people out there who still share that same opinion that I did in the past.

But what about a 30-year old woman who has never been confident and always hiding what’s under her bra because her breasts were irregular?

One is B-cup, and the other is D-cup, and one is higher than the other. Take for example, a male athlete who has a broken nose and chin and needed it to be fixed, or people with abnormal structures of the body caused by birth defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors, or disease.  Would they be considered vain if they have reconstructive cosmetic surgery to correct the defects on the face or body?  Would people still consider it vain when someone just wanted to feel normal and be accepted by everyone without being the laughing stock?

Phuket cosmetic surgery taught me a lot of things.  I have handled a lot of clients and listened to their stories.  Whether the purpose is vanity or reconstructive, it all boils down to an altered self-esteem, troubled by their appearance.  We know that if they can’t solve this problem, it can contribute to depression or low self-esteem.  Who am I to judge them based on their individual reasoning?  I was wrong for originally thinking that it was vanity which made them decide to have a surgery.  No one is born perfect; we all have that part of our body that we never like.  Everyone wants to be desirable, presentable, confident, and satisfied with our appearance.  Who wants to have an altered self-esteem when we all know that it is how we value ourselves; it is how we perceive our value to the world and how valuable we think we are to others.  Self-esteem affects our trust in others, our relationships, our work-nearly every part of our lives.  Positive self-esteem gives us the strength and flexibility to take charge of our lives and grow without the fear of rejection.

Regardless of the client’s reason for having the surgery, the surgeons here in Phuket will make sure that procedures are fully explained, and will give you a choice as to what they think is best for your situation. I appreciate the fact that surgeons are honest and would tell directly what they know is right, based on their extensive experience in the field. They are considered the best for a reason, and that reason, in my opinion, is their ability to determine what the best course of action is, based on the desires of the client, and coming up with great solutions for some of the most common problems associated with the complex cosmetic surgeries.
