As a plastic surgeon, it’s interesting to see how different our perceptions of beauty can be. For every woman in Houston considering liposuction, there’s another searching for breast augmentation. Since it’s impossible to please everyone, you should always begin by pleasing yourself.
Although trends in plastic surgery can influence a person’s decision to have plastic surgery, they should never determine what procedure you need. This decision is highly personal, and relies on an acute sense of self. Your perception of your body can influence how you interact with others, how successful you are at the workplace, and most importantly, how you feel about yourself.
I’ve seen a number of men and women come into my practice with a clear set of cosmetic goals, and walk out after surgery having exceeded these expectations. What all of these people have in common is a strong idea of what they would like to achieve with surgery.
