A Growing Addiction: Plastic Surgery

with 3 comments

The growing trend of plastic or cosmetic surgery, has been on the rise for quite sometime now, as our society becomes more and more visually oriented. Don’t get me wrong, plastic surgery is not always a bad thing. Like anything in life, the benefits of plastic surgery can be over done.

 Children, for example, who are born with severe deformities, can have their entire lives turned around and be given the chance at a good social life as they progress into adulthood.


What about those people who don’t have physical deformities though? All those beautiful women who find so much wrong with themselves?

Studies show that two-thirds of people who get plastic surgery return for a second surgery or more. Some people who feel that they can attain a “perfect” look will turn to plastic surgery again and again after the initial fear is gone.

Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) is often the origin of plastic surgery addiction. BDD can cause people to have a skewed perception of themselves and feel that they look bad aesthetically, no matter how many cosmetic surgeries they undergo.

People who suffer from Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD) often feel the need to be beautiful in order to be happy. However, since people who suffer from BDD have an unattainable or unrealistic sense of beauty, they will often enter into a never ending cycle of plastic surgery addiction.  


Plastic surgeons who are ethically and morally responsible will always look for signs of sexual addiction in patients. Although it may affect their overall income, it is important that surgeons talk to their clients and make sure that they do not suffer from BDD.  

Just like any other Addiction though, it takes time and effort to achieve results. Sticking with your Recovery rountines are very important to overcoming.

Admitting that you have a problem is always the first and most important step towards reaching your Recovery. Enlist the help of your family and friends and let them know that you need help. With the help of those you trust ,you can break the cycle of cosmetic surgery and be on your way to a brighter and more healthier future.
