Commenting on the July 22 op-ed, Beverly Hills Physicians notes that the author does a good job of explaining how plastic surgery is a personal choice that is up to each individual to make.

Two of the biggest motivations, says BHP, are patients who want to look like they used to, and the patients who want the world to see them as they see themselves.

In a piece published July 22 on LinkedIn’s Pulse, author Dan Travis made a case for the personal side of plastic surgery and explained why people should not shy away from their own personal aspirations. The author notes that people should “stop knocking cosmetic surgery for the excesses of the few and celebrate it for the modern wonder that it is.” This is a great approach to the modern discussion of plastic surgery, notes Los Angeles medical group Beverly Hills Physicians (BHP). Both the surgical experts at Beverly Hills Physicians, and the author of the article, note that there are several reasons why someone might aspire to look differently. Two of the biggest motivations, says BHP, are patients who want to look like they used to, and the patients who want the world to see them as they see themselves:

  • “Reclaiming a Past Appearance” – One of the reasons why the term “reconstruction” is used so often in the field of plastic surgery, notes BHP, is that many procedures are done with the motivation of reclaiming and recapturing a past appearance. While people typically think of aging as the most common motivator for wanting to look like a person’s former self, BHP notes that pregnancy and childbirth can also lead to certain unwanted changes with the female form. The mommy makeover, involving a suite of procedures including tummy tucks and breast augmentation surgery, is one of the most requested packages of services, notes BHP.
  • “Achieving an Ideal You” – As the author of the article points out, aspiration is a very important aspect of plastic surgery. BHP notes that many patients simply want others to be able to see them the way they see themselves. One example given by Beverly Hills Physicians is a patient seeking a rhinoplasty procedure in order to make their nose less noticeable, allowing others to see their beautiful more attractive features without being distracted by one that may be less so.

No matter what aspirations a patient may have, Beverly Hills Physicians is ready to help with a variety of cosmetic procedures for men and women. Whether a patient wants to reclaim their past appearance, or achieve a look that they have always wanted, a consultation is a good first step toward achieving that goal.
