Summary: There are typically some common motivations for plastic surgery procedures. And then there are uncommon motivations.
Surprising Motivations to Get Plastic Surgery
There’s that old saying: looking good is the best revenge. There’s definitely some truth in that. Of course, what that “revenge” is for is open to debate. Sometimes the revenge is for a little thing and sometimes it’s for a big thing. I guess it all depends on how you define “revenge.” When most people talk about plastic surgery motivations, they discuss it in terms of looking like your real self or aligning your body image and your body; in other words, getting plastic surgery so you feel comfortable in your own skin. However, there are some unconventional motivations for plastic surgery as well.
These unconventional motivations run the gamut. And, ultimately, they all involve the same type of motivations discussed above (self improvement, body image, etc). Sometimes, however, the desire to take a bad situation and turn it into a good situation is a also a motivation when it comes to getting a cosmetic or plastic surgery procedure done. So let’s take a look at some surprising motivations for plastic surgery procedures.
One of the most painful steps in anyone’s life can also be one of the most liberating. Look, divorce is no picnic, but if you hire the right divorce lawyer, it can certainly be somewhat liberating. And in that liberation, there’s a perfect opportunity to treat yourself to some plastic surgery. This is especially true if your divorce (or the marriage preceding it) was particularly stressful. Sometimes the best way to relieve that stress is to look great. And there are plenty of procedures you can get that are quick, nearly painless, and lead to a rejuvenated look. Those procedures include:
- Dermal Filler Injections
- Non Surgical Nose Job
- Non Surgical Eyelid Lift
- Laser or Spa Treatments
Living Life to the Fullest
The positivity of a divorce can, sometimes, go both ways. That’s usually not true with a death in the family; in fact, that’s the kind of tragedy that’s certainly hard to spin. However, sometimes a death in the family or of a loved one can inspire you to live life to the fullest. After all, there are certainly those of us who could use a reminder that life is precious and we should do those things that really mean something to us. For many people, that means treating yourself to plastic surgery—taking the time to invest in yourself.
A Mid-Life Crisis
In many cases, a mid-life crisis is seen to be a bad thing; it’s when you suddenly become irresponsible, buy a sports car, and fly off to Europe. However, mid-life crises can actually have some good outcomes as well. In many cases, your mid-life crisis will coincide with exactly that time in your life where plastic surgery or cosmetic procedures might be most potent. So if you have your mid-life crisis when you’re ready for a facelift, the two could actually form a kind of happy accident. Okay, accident isn’t the right word. But the two form a mutually beneficial synthetic relationship. The results of the facelift will last for years, and you’ll look and feel younger.
Spur of the Moment Spontaneity
It’s true that you should probably never get a plastic surgery procedure as a truly spontaneous act. But you can certainly look into plastic surgery spontaneously. What I mean by that is the research involved can be spontaneous. Once you’ve selected your procedure, you can then decide whether to go through with it or not. But you can spur of the moment decide you want to undergo a tummy tuck; as long as you confirm that desire over time. So let the spur of the moment guide you towards a procedure—and then take the time to make sure that’s what you want.
Make Sure You Get What You Want
At the end of the day, whatever guides you towards the surgeon’s office, it’s important to ensure you get what you want out of the experience. Whether it’s a divorce or a mid-life crisis, take the time to make sure you’re getting the final results you really want. Because that’s what really matters: that when you look in the mirror you love what you see.
