The facelift surgery procedure in Beverly Hills is not about vanity
Vanity, it would seem, is not a big problem
for many people in the Los Angeles area, or anywhere in today’s
society. We are consistently in front of the camera, capturing the next
“selfie” to share with friends, family, and followers. While we seem to
have no problem with self-promotion, many people take pause at a
When considering a facelift surgery procedure,
for instance, many who visit our Beverly Hills practice wonder whether
vanity is behind their desire, and if this is acceptable. In our
experience, we have found that there are certain cultures in which the
surgical modification of the body warrants no justification. We purchase
new cars and new clothes to suit our need for self-image. Why shouldn’t
we rejuvenate our facial appearance without feeling guilty?
The facelift is just another part of self-improvement
There are many facets to self-improvement, some of which revolve around
appearance. Men and women who seek plastic surgery may also be doing
other things to improve themselves. They may be eating better and losing
weight. Toning up their muscles at the gym or in a yoga studio, where
the mind is given a reprieve from daily stress.
In many cases, the choice to improve mind, body, and soul occurs in
conjunction with a major life event. Perhaps there has been a divorce,
or the youngest child has left for college. Maybe the event is a big
move across the country or a big move within a company. Whatever marks
the transition to seeking positive changes, the results of improvement –
Including cosmetic surgery – can have a profound impact on emotional wellbeing.
Traditionally, undergoing plastic surgery enhancement in response to any
type of external event has been frowned upon. Clearly, there should not
be an expectation that facelift surgery or any other cosmetic
improvement will make problems vanish. Many surgeons and their patients
have found there are benefits in reconsidering this view. Many people
undergoing changes in their life benefit a great deal from addressing
cosmetic concerns with a compassionate surgeon.
