Share Article

Commenting on the recent article, the Los Angeles plastic surgery center explains that, while being inspired by a certain celebrity can help to explain one’s desired look to their surgeon, patients should always aim to become the best version of themselves.

While celebrities can certainly serve as inspiration for a procedure, looking exactly like them shouldn’t be the end goal.

The best mindset patients can have when approaching the possibility of plastic surgery is to aim to become the best version of themselves, rather than a version of someone else.

According to an article published November 6th on kHou.com, plastic surgeons across the country are seeing what is being called the “Kardashian Effect,” with more and more female patients requesting the curvy features popularized by the first family of reality television. The article explains that, in addition to the ever popular breast augmentation and tummy tuck procedures, combination liposuction and Brazilian butt lift procedures are rising in popularity as women aim to look more like their television and social media idols. According to Beverly Hills Physicians, a health and beauty group specializing in these and many more plastic surgery procedures, celebrities can serve as a good initial inspiration for having a procedure, but trying to look a great deal like them may not be the best ultimate goal for men or women to have. They explain that, while a patient telling a surgeon that he or she wishes to have a certain known attribute associated with a particular celebrity may be a helpful way of communicating the initial desire, if carried too far it risks muddying the true purpose of most plastic surgery procedures. That purpose, they explain, is to help patients look like the best version of themselves.

Beverly Hills Physicians explains that it is certainly normal to admire the looks and the lifestyle of a notable public figure. Yet, some people incorrectly assume that, by undergoing a procedure to look more like that person, they will somehow also attain the glamorous lifestyle that they so admire. Beverly Hills Physicians notes that patients may set themselves up for disappointment if they assume that looking more like a certain celebrity will solve problems in their life that that celebrity does seem to have.

Because of this, Beverly Hills Physicians explains that the best mindset patients can have when approaching the possibility of plastic surgery is to aim to become the best version of themselves, rather than a version of someone else. They explain that this allows patients to get a boost in self-confidence by building on what is already true to them, rather than trying to adopt a new identity. In fact, Beverly Hills Physicians says that many of their patients tell them that their reason for electing plastic surgery is that they want everyone else to be able to see the beauty that they have always found in themselves.

While there are many different reasons why a person may elect a buttock augmentation, a tummy tuck, or any number of plastic surgery procedures, Beverly Hills Physicians says that it should always be a choice that is in the best interest of each patient. They explain that patients can learn more about each individual procedure by scheduling a free consultation at one of BHP’s Southern California locations. Patients interested in scheduling a consultation can call 800-788-1416, or visit BHP online at http://www.BeverlyHillsPhysicians.com.
