With 1.5 million cosmetic procedures were performed last year, it can be easy to overlook that each one of those procedures started with a decision by someone to undergo a cosmetic procedure. Well, what inspired that decision? People get cosmetic surgery for a wide variety of reasons, and that decision shouldn’t be entered into lightly, but here are a few of the more common ones.
When bringing a baby to term, the body goes through a lot of changes, and doesn’t always end the journey as svelte as it started. It can be extremely hard to get back in shape after a pregnancy, even with the most stringent diet and exercise regiments. That’s why a lot of new moms get what are called Mommy Makeovers – a package deal that can include breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tucks, and a few other procedures, as the need may arise.
Major Life Changes
There are any number of life changes that might prompt someone to look at cosmetic surgery. On the job hunt again? A facelift to erase wrinkles may help you stand out in a competitive job market. Moving? Could be a chance to reinvent your look to impress new people. Getting married? A little bit of Botox could help you look your best for the big day (for men, too!). A big change, no matter what it is, can get the wheels turning and have people reevaluate their lives, and their looks.
“You think I’m HOW old?”
One of the biggest inspirations for cosmetic touchups, naturally, centres around aging. When we age, we don’t usually notice it ourselves, since it’s a gradual process. But the change can be more noticeable to an outside party, and if they don’t know you, they might assume you’re older than you are, or at least how old you feel inside. This kind of thing can, for some, be a wake-up call that their appearance isn’t as youthful as it once was, and some opt for surgery, or less invasive procedures.
