Lighthearted Documentary Highlights the Fact that Plastic Surgery is Just Another Aspect of Contemporary Life, says Beverly Hills Physicians

The Southern California-based health and beauty medical group comments on a recent article that, while plastic surgery is serious business, it’s a subject most people are now comfortable with.

Procedures such as a facelift can make a real difference in how women and men are perceived.

The film’s reportedly lighthearted and nonjudgmental approach to plastic surgery underlines a growing acceptance and normalization of plastic surgery in the public mind.

An April 22 article from the Newport Beach Indy reports on a new documentary, “Take My Nose…Please,” covering the reactions of female comics to the subject of plastic surgery. Remarkably, the film’s first-time director is 89 year-old Joan Kron, a former editor of Allure magazine. Southern California based health and beauty medical group Beverly Hills Physicians (BHP) notes that the film’s reportedly lighthearted and nonjudgmental approach to plastic surgery underlines a growing acceptance and normalization of plastic surgery in the public mind. The group notes that more and more of its patients equate plastic surgery and other procedures with many other beauty treatments. The group adds that patients typically cite a number of reasons for obtaining procedures such as rhinoplasty (nose job) or breast augmentation. These include:

Staying Relevant in the Workplace. BHP notes that it’s not just performers who feel they can benefit from an improved or rejuvenated appearance. The medical group notes that many of its patients – from fields as diverse as the law, real estate, and education – feel that appearing older can be a subtle handicap to career advancement. Many of them have reported a noticeable improvement in their fortunes after getting procedures that make them look younger or more attractive; they say that coworkers appear to take them more seriously and somehow their views on current changes in the marketplace are more likely to be considered, perhaps because they are perceived as somehow being more in touch with contemporary trends.

Staying in the Game Socially. As men and women alike are living longer and enjoying better physical health, more and more are finding themselves unexpectedly returning to the dating pool after a divorce or the death of a spouse, says BHP. This means that more and more people in their middle years and beyond are seeking out new ways to keep themselves competitive in the always contentious game of love. BHP says that patients in the older age brackets are seeking out a fully array of procedures that range from injection-based facial rejuvenation procedures, such as Botox, to tummy tucks and breast augmentations for a more youthful bodily appearance.

BHP concludes by noting that more people of all ages are showing up at its offices in growing numbers, and they agree that, while certain aspects of plastic surgery can be as humorous as such great comedians as the late Joan Rivers and Phyllis Diller often pointed out, taking advantage of the latest beauty procedures is no joke.
