It has been in the back of your head for years, but you can’t make up your mind. It has been at the tip of your tongue for a while, but you’ve never said Yes. Your arrow has hovered over the button, but you’ve never clicked Book an Appointment.
Is this the year you finally get plastic surgery?
This is obviously a major decision and it’s good that you’re not taking it lightly. But if you have put the idea away a few times and it keeps coming back, something keeps bringing it back. Don’t ignore that.
So if you’ve been on the fence about plastic surgery for a few years, here are a few signs that it’s time to take the leap.
1. You’re Hung Up on the Specifics
Let’s say you’ve always wanted to get a nose job. You have browsed countless rhinoplasty before and after photos in your spare time, but you can’t seem to decide what would look best on your face.
If you’re stuck in the weeds on the specifics of your would-be surgery, that’s OK. It’s actually not your job to pull yourself out. If you’re 90% sure you want to get a procedure, but you don’t know exactly what it would look like, you should meet with a surgeon.
It’s their job to show you exactly how a given look would complement your existing features, and even show you a digital preview.
2. You Hate Zoom Calls with a Passion
If you have never liked your chin or nose, you probably can’t stop staring at it on Zoom calls these days. You’re not alone.
People that have never considered plastic surgery before are doing so now, thanks to the COVID-19 lockdown. We’re all staring at our own faces on video calls and obsessing over them. This has actually led to plastic surgeons reporting a 60% increase during the COVID-19 lockdown.
3. You See the Perfect Window
Another reason plastic surgery is booming during the COVID-19 lockdown is the new opportunity to discretely get plastic surgery, then recover from it while working from home.
If you had to be on-site for your job 5 days a week, you might have had to use a week of vacation days to recover. But now, you can work from home and save your vacation days.
4. You’re Tired of Feeling Insecure
Eventually, you just get fed up with feeling insecure and obsessing over the thing that makes you feel insecure. It could be your nose, your hairline, your stomach, or any other part of your body.
You try to hide it in social media pictures, or worry about it when filling out an online dating profile. Every now and then, you will involuntarily see it from a new angle in an elevator mirror or something like that.
Your family and friends insist that they never notice it or think about it. But you do.
Will this be the year you finally take the plunge? It certainly could be. At the very least, you owe it to yourself to make the jump from talking about it with family and friends to talking to a plastic surgeon.
