As the New Year approaches, many of us start contemplating resolutions aimed at self-improvement. While popular choices often revolve around fitness, health, or career goals, some individuals consider cosmetic surgery as a potential avenue for a renewed appearance during the holidays. 

In this blog, Artiste Plastic Surgery will explore the idea of making cosmetic surgery your New Year’s resolution, weighing the pros and cons to provide you with more information you should know.

Pros of Considering Cosmetic Surgery

  1. Physical Improvements: Cosmetic surgery offers the opportunity to address physical features that individuals may be dissatisfied with. From rhinoplasty to facelift, these procedures can help achieve specific aesthetic goals.
  1. Addressing Asymmetry: For some, cosmetic surgery is a means to correct perceived imperfections, such as asymmetry or disproportionate features. This can lead to a sense of satisfaction and alignment with one’s desired appearance.
  1. Improving Quality of Life: For some individuals, cosmetic surgery goes beyond aesthetic improvements and contributes to an improved quality of life. In research to be published we will explore these very reasons.  
  1. For instance, a rhinoplasty can help improve breathing and upper eyelid surgery can help improve vision. This aspect highlights the potential for cosmetic surgery to positively impact not just appearance but also functional aspects of life.

Cons of Making Cosmetic Surgery Your Resolution

  1. Potential Risks: Like any surgical procedure, cosmetic surgery comes with potential risks and complications. It’s crucial to thoroughly research and understand the potential complications associated with the chosen procedure.
  1. Financial Considerations: Cosmetic surgery can be expensive in Sydney and around the world, and not everyone can afford the costs involved. Financial considerations should be carefully weighed against the perceived benefits of the procedure.
  1. Unrealistic Expectations: Setting unrealistic expectations for the outcome of cosmetic surgery can lead to disappointment. It’s essential to have a realistic understanding of what can be achieved through these procedures.

Making cosmetic surgery your New Year’s resolution is a personal choice that requires careful consideration.
