In spite of the active campaigns that are constantly being mounted in an attempt to discourage people from getting plastic surgery, more and more people are opting to go under the knife than they did before. This increase is certainly interesting to follow as you would understandably be curious as to the reasons why this is happening.
Some of the reasons that this surge in demand can be attributed to include:
Advanced technological use
It is much easier to get the desired results in this day and age with the advancement in technology that is used in these procedures. Specialists keep coming up with new and improved ways to carry out procedures whose outcomes would have been 50-50 and this effectively tilts the probability of the outcome in favor of the best results. Furthermore, the possibility of non-invasive procedures is more palatable to potential candidates and this ultimately increases demand.
With an increase in the number of cosmetic surgery practitioners comes an increase in availability. Plastic surgery is no longer the preserve of the rich and famous in Hollywood as now even the average person can easily access the procedure. More plastic surgeons setting up practices has made this accessibility possible.
An increase in the number of available surgeons has led to increasingly competitive pricing strategies with every one of them wanting to attract clientele. You no longer have to part with an arm and a led to getting plastic surgery. Their surgeons are no longer as rare as they were some years back and getting an appointment is not a nightmare anymore. You can easily access a qualified surgeon at a fair price and on short notice.
The rise of digital albums and the selfie generation
There is no doubt that selfies are the thing currently and everywhere you turn there is probably a person or people taking these photos for their digital albums. With these selfies came filters which enabled people to edit their photos to add and remove whatever they want. Why edit photos when you can actually get the look? This is the thinking that leads even more people towards getting plastic surgery. Getting their desired look is possible and they are willing to go for it.
Normalization of plastic surgery
People are increasingly becoming honest about getting plastic surgery. Before, they would not even want to be seen in plastic surgery centers because of the stigma surrounding people who chose to get any work done on their bodies. There may be people who still look down on these people who choose to go the surgery way but the number is relatively lower. People are more open to accepting that every other person can choose what they want.
If you think about it, if plastic surgery was as bad as it is portrayed on television and on social media, the number of surgeons specializing in the study and getting licenses to practice would have been really low. If anything, regulatory bodies would have shut down all practices a long time ago anyway.
