Cosmetic plastic surgery is unlike traditional surgery which is customarily performed for patients with the physical disease, illness, or injuries. In contrast, cosmetic plastic surgery is intended for physically healthy individuals. Its objective is to relieve emotional or psychological distress resulting from one’s physical appearance. A typical candidate for cosmetic surgery is a person who believes that a specific part of their appearance can be “corrected” and has a strong desire to take advantage of this correction. Whatever the reason for choosing cosmetic plastic surgery, it is important that the patient has realistic expectations. “Correcting” your face or your body can increase your sense of well-being, but it is not a guarantee of happiness. Cosmetic surgical procedures are not miraculous therapies devoid of risk. It is real surgery with all the associated drawbacks and perils of traditional surgery.
With cosmetic plastic surgery, communication between patient and surgeon is essential. The surgeon must assess whether the patient’s desires are feasible and realistic. Similarly, the patient should evaluate the physician’s qualifications, ability, and proficiency to inform.
