Understanding Negative Opinions About Your Look After Cosmetic Surgery

When you go in for cosmetic surgery, you are taking steps to improve your appearance. It is important to understand that not everyone may be receptive to the changes for petty reasons.

Life goes by quickly, but not when you get up each morning and stare at something on your body you hate. Some say it is vanity that drives us nuts, but the effect builds up over time. You can learn to live with it and try to ignore it or you can do something about it. These days, more and more people are looking to cosmetic surgery to resolve these issues.

There are a lot of factors that go into the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery. Can you afford it since health insurance rarely covers it? Do you have a good surgeon or some hack? Will you look natural or have an artificial look like some overdone celebrities? These are all issues to consider and discuss with your surgeon, but one issue is often overlooked.

Unfortunately, there are some people who will criticize your new appearance regardless of how good you look following cosmetic surgery. There are a number of reasons for this and range from person to person. Jealousy from others is the number one reason, to wit, you look better than them now so they are going to try to knock you down. Regardless of the specific reason, you should prepare yourself for some negative or snide comments.

For some reason, people often criticize others for no objective reason. I was once with a young lady at a party that was criticized for undergoing cosmetic surgery. While that may not sound odd, the situation will make you think twice. This woman had undergone gastric bypass surgery and lost over 200 pounds. This massive weight loss led to excessive skin flaps and a cosmetic surgeon resolved them. How, I wonder, could she possibly be criticized?

As a rule, there is only one person that should influence your decision to have plastic surgery - YOU! If you are annoyed by some aspect of your body, then discuss your options with a cosmetic surgeon if fixing it will make you feel better. Whatever you do, don't rely or fall victim to the opinions of others who are petty or jealous.
