How To Talk About Cosmetic Surgery With Your Family

talk to family about cosmetic surgery

Cosmetic surgery has become more and more commonplace in our society, as opposed to the past where the majority of the public was extremely negative. However, even today, some people are extremely opinionated about the procedures that people go through, so this is why some clients find it hard to tell family and friends. Many people that have undergone cosmetic surgery have felt afraid to tell those close to them and have hidden up-and-coming surgery to avoid the negative comments. Before you decide to inform your close ones about your plans, you should consider the following factors:

Who Do You Tell?

You really need to weigh up your relationship with your friends or family before you are going to tell them that you want to have cosmetic surgery. It is often unknown that many married people do not let their partners know that they are going to have plastic surgery, and hide it from them. This may well be a good thing though when it comes to co-workers who may be nosy.

When you come to deciding on who to tell, have a good think about how you believe they will react. If you believe they will be judgemental then obviously do not let them know. However, you should be aware that there will be someone among your family and friends that will surprise you; either positively or negatively. Many people also find that people they barely know will offer their opinions on what you are about to undergo.

Post-Surgery Care

If the cosmetic surgery you are due to have is a facelift or rhinoplasty, then you should ensure you have someone to help you through the recovery. Post-surgery, you will need to rest up for as long as possible to help the healing process and the physical and mental drain upon yourself. If you have young children, then make sure your partner is able to assist with the school run, or getting them to sports. You truly need someone that will care for you.

The Results

Common medspa procedures are non-invasive, and they have subtle results that most of your family and friends will not even notice. However, the invasive procedures will have results that will be hard to hide, and people will notice. It really is down to you how you wish to try to cope with this, but remember, your final look will make your self-worth far more important than a negative comment from someone you thought was your friend. At the end of the day, it is your body, your emotions and it has nothing to do with what their opinions may be.

Your Surgeon

One person who certainly not comment and is there purely for your well-being is your certified plastic surgeon. Before you go to see one, make sure you have done some research on them. Make sure your selected cosmetic surgeon is:

  • Fully committed to your safety
  • Belongs to a reputable medical organization
