Plastic Surgery and the Social Media Effect

Plastic Surgery in Philadelphia, PA

Now that social media has been around for several years, it’s clear that it’s a trend that will continue. Today, social media is more used than ever before. Celebrities, adults, teens, and even children convene on various social platforms to join the online community. Social media is flooded with images of users, leading some participants to consider plastic surgery to improve their appearance online.

Social Media & Body Image

Some of the most popular accounts on social media are those of models, pop culture icons, and other celebrities. These people are beautiful, thin, and possess many physical traits that others find desirable. This causes other users of social media to want a similar appearance. The fact is many of these popular social media users have used plastic surgery to achieve their look. The Kardashians, for example, are hugely popular on social media. Several of the Kardashians routinely have plastic surgery, and would not look the same if they did not. This causes many people to have unrealistic expectations of how they are supposed to look.

Body Image & You

Your body image is much more than what you post on social media. With social media playing such a large role in our lives, it’s not unreasonable to improve your appearance for your social media presence. However, it’s important to focus on your own appearance and not let others on social media influence how you think you should look. It can be easy to get lost in photos of your favorite celebrities, but you have many beautiful qualities of your own that don’t need any adjustment. In the end, if you want to change the way your body looks, that’s okay. However, it should be because you want to, not because you feel pressured to by social media.

Plastic Surgery & You

If you feel strongly about achieving a certain appearance, plastic surgery can be a great option to help you get there. Plastic surgery can help you look younger, reduce fat, and even change your facial features. If plastic surgery will help you love yourself and your body more, then it is a great tool for self-improvement. As long as you are doing it for you, and not to impress others, you are a good candidate for plastic surgery.
