With anything, there will be pros and cons. Often, the more drastic or consequential a decision is, the more radical and significant pros and cons tend to be. So you can think of choices that you make that are dramatic regarding price or methodology, and you’ll find that there are directly correlated positives and negatives related to intensity.
Think for a minute about the pros and cons of something like elective surgery. On the pro side, certain types of elective surgery can give a person a huge confidence boost. On the negative side, there are always potential risks with operations. On the positive side, elective surgery after an accident can return a certain sense of normalcy. On the negative hand, the availability of elective surgery often gives people trouble with their self-esteem or self-image.
One of the things that will often come with elective surgery is a boost in confidence. For example, if someone decides to get a facelift to remove some wrinkles as they are aging, the results they get may make them feel like they are much younger again, or potentially even more attractive. They want to make the outside of themselves look like they feel on the inside.
With any surgery, there are risks involved. Some may not even feel as apparent as others. For example, when people get breast implants, they don’t expect to be dealing with a breast implant autoimmune reaction. But it does happen. Anytime surgery occurs on the human body, there is the potential for negative consequences, including things like infections, which are more or less frequent depending on the type of operation.
Recovery After Accidents
Getting cosmetic surgery after an accident is one way that people return to normalcy after a tragic event occurs. For example, if someone is burned in a fire, there are ways to use cosmetic surgery to create more natural aesthetics on the burned parts of the skin. New technology and better techniques are making this kind of operation much more successful these days as well, which gives people a better opportunity to lead a normal life even after something terrible and disfiguring happens.
Again on the negative side of things, the availability of elective cosmetic surgery means that people can sometimes end up with self-image issues. It’s not realistic or possible to look like people on magazine covers. They have been digitally enhanced. Or, it is their job to look a certain way. If you try to look like other people or compare yourself to their bodies or their images, it’s very easy to end up with self-esteem and self-image issues. Simply because surgery is available does not mean that you should assume that it’s something healthy that you can do, especially where vanity is concerned.
