The average millennial will take nearly 25,000 selfies in their lifetime. According to MarketWatch, more than 40 percent of facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons said taking selfies on social media was an incentive for all patients to undergo plastic surgery. More than 200,000 of these patients were found to be millennials. Some people, therefore, invest their time and money in temporary cosmetics to conceal their flaws. Plastic surgery, though, can be a permanent fix to the insecurities that negatively affect one’s daily life.
In today’s society, confidence is an essential ingredient to happiness. Teenagers are constantly reminded of the pressure to look a certain way. Although the importance of loving one’s natural beauty is indispensable, it should not be condemned to boost love for oneself by changing the root of their insecurities.
Experiencing low self-esteem as a result of a physical attribute that a person is not happy with can impact many aspects of their life. If changing this negative feature can stimulate more self-confidence, by all means, one should participate in such actions.
The widely popular TV Personality and Entrepreneur, Kylie Jenner, revealed on an episode of her show, “Life of Kylie”, that she received lip injections due to the name calling and bullying she endured during her adolescence that caused her to feel undesirable. Jenner constantly expresses her gratitude towards lip injections which increased her levels of self-confidence that eventually assisted in the development of her multi-million dollar Lipkit company.
Along with the increase of self-confidence, the social lives of the patients can significantly improve. If the patients were self-conscious enough to go under the knife, there is a high chance that their social lives were negatively impacted through their ability to make relationships with others. This new-found confidence can transform a shy individual into a “social butterfly” due to the lack of anxiety and insecurity. The trickle down effect is one of the most beneficial outcomes of plastic surgery. Most individuals have witnessed the trickle down effect, if not experienced it themselves. A person can undergo a makeover, begin a diet, or any other rewarding action of this sort, and instantly feel as if everything in their life receives an upgrade as well.
To connect this trickle-down effect to plastic surgery procedures, satisfied patients see enormous benefits in nearly every detail in their lives. When you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good, your whole attitude and approach towards life is changed for the better.
