Plastic Surgery & Body Positivity:
Can they Co-Exist?

In today's world, the way we look at our bodies is changing. We hear a lot about loving ourselves just the way we are. But, at the same time, more and more people are choosing plastic surgery. Can these two ideas – getting surgery to change how we look and loving our bodies – exist together?

Plastic Surgery & Body Positivity: Can they Co-Exist?

This is a big question. It's about how we see our bodies and how we accept ourselves. Some people think that if you get plastic surgery, you don't love your body. Others say that it's a way to make your body match how you feel inside, which is also a kind of self-love.

Let's look closer. We've talked to different people who have had cosmetic surgery. Their stories show a mix of feelings and reasons. One person might have surgery to feel better about a part of their body they've always been unhappy with. Another person might do it to feel more like themselves after a big life change, like having a baby.

What's really interesting is how plastic surgery is changing. Doctors and patients are discussing how surgery can help people feel good about themselves, not just look a certain way. This new kind of thinking blends the idea of body change with body love. It's not just about fitting into a certain look. It's about each person's unique journey with their body.

Statistics are telling the same story. In recent years, there's been a significant rise in "body-positive plastic surgery." Reports show a 30% increase in surgeries done not for drastic changes but for subtle, personal enhancements. It's a shift from the "one-size-fits-all" idea of beauty to a more individual, self-focused approach.

So, can plastic surgery and body positivity exist together? It seems they can. It's all about why and how people choose surgery. If it's a choice made from self-care and love, then it surely fits into the big picture of body positivity.

This topic isn't black and white. It's full of different shades, just like our individual journeys with our bodies. What's important is that we respect each person's choice and understand that self-love can come in many forms – including, for some, plastic surgery.

I now apply these same principles to cosmetic surgery. For me, it's about making my patients look natural and restoring confidence so that they can be the best version of themselves. Plastic surgery and body positivity can exist in a harmonious way. As a plastic surgeon, we must listen to our patients and find the balance between the patient's desires and their underlying framework. It's a nuanced conversation where the choice of surgery, grounded in self-care and personal growth, aligns with loving and accepting our bodies.

Plastic surgery and body positivity can definitely co-exist. I personally went into plastic surgery because of the relationship I developed with breast cancer patients and aiding them in restoring their bodies as best as possible back to normal. It was life-changing for me, as well as my patients.
