To help guide you, here are some of the key advantages and disadvantages that come with cosmetic surgery:

Let’s Start With the Pros

Enhanced Appearance

One of the main reasons why so many opt to have cosmetic surgery is because they believe that it will enhance their appearance. Usually down to a dislike of one or a few features on their body, it’s seen as a quick and simple way of fixing it – whether that be through Rhinoplasty or another procedure. 

A Confidence Boost

Another key reason and benefit that can comes with a cosmetic treatment is that it can give you a boost in confidence. The moment that you’ve had the surgery done you could start to feel better in yourself and have the confidence to go out and show off the results to all of your family and friends. 

However, at the end of the day, you must do what makes you feel good. Therefore, it’s vital that you only undergo the surgery if it’s something that you think will bring you true joy. Never feel pressured to opt into a trend just because it’s rapidly growing in popularity.

Improved Physical Health 

Another key pro that comes with cosmetic surgery, is that in many cases, it can have a direct improvement in physical health. For example, with Rhinoplasty, not only can it improve the shape of your nose, but it can also help with any respiratory issues that you’ve been facing. 

Now Onto The Cons

The Cost

This might sound like an obvious one, but it’s important to keep in mind before investing in cosmetic surgery. The price of the surgery, will of course, depend on the type of procedure that you have. But to have one undertaken by a reputable surgeon, you’re looking at costs of up to $30,000. 

A Mistake?

Another potential downside to keep in mind is that many people regret the cosmetic surgery that they’ve had done. As many will completely alter your appearance, you might find that you’re not happy with the way that you now look. This is why it’s something that you need to consider thoroughly before taking the leap and going for it.


Depending on the cosmetic surgery you’re looking at, there might be some risks that come with it. From infection to more serious risks, you need to be aware of these before you sign on the dotted line. Of course, a reputable and credible surgeon should inform you of these before you go under the knife. 

An Alternative: Cosmetic Treatments 

Although cosmetic surgery involves procedures that are typically invasive, there are cosmetic treatments available that will enhance your appearance without the need for surgery. For example, you could have microblading, laser hair removal, a VNUS Closure Procedure or dermal fillers.

  1. The best part about microblading is that its low maintenance, so you don’t have to spend a lot of time filling in your eyebrows every day.

  2. I have not really ever considered it seriously. Though I wouldn’t mind having a breast reduction.

    • Girl you and me BOTH!!! I would give anything to be a size or three smaller and not have to scour the ends of the earth to find one that fit properly – ha!
