How to Overcome the Plastic Surgery Stigma

In today’s society, plastic surgery is becoming increasingly common. Although the practices are safe and can do wonders for patients’ self-esteem, many still struggle with a perceived stigma surrounding the procedures. However, it’s possible to overcome the negative stigma of these surgeries.

Understand the Scale of Plastic Surgery

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 17.5 million cosmetic procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2017, a 2% increase from 2016. This continual growth is reflected in a 3% increase in breast augmentations, a 5% increase in liposuction, and a 2% increase in tummy tucks between the two years. Although there may be a social stigma associated with plastic surgery, the truth is that it is an increasingly popular choice for Americans looking to alter their appearances, and it is becoming more commonplace each day.

Know the Process

Many patients are concerned about plastic surgeries simply because they don’t understand the procedures they may undergo. However, many find this can be easily alleviated by discussing a potential procedure with the certified and experienced doctor who will be performing the procedure. They will be able to walk patients through the steps of the process, as well as the recovery time and financial options, to alleviate some stress.

Be Open With Friends and Loved Ones

Those who feel a stigma surrounding plastic surgery may be tempted to keep their decision to get a procedure a secret. However, this may have the effect of increasing the stigma by feeling it must be kept under wraps. Instead, discuss the possibilities of surgery with friends and loved ones and try to be open about desired outcomes. This is a good way to remember that plastic surgery is a personal choice that no one should feel embarrassed about.

Remember the Reasons

Finally, the best way to overcome the stigma of plastic surgery is to remember the reasons for getting it in the first place. Many choose plastic surgery to reduce self-conscious feelings or self-criticism, whether related to facial features or even their weight. Having these doubts reduced by plastic surgery can be enough to inspire patients to overcome any perceived stigma.

Deciding whether to get plastic surgery is not always an easy choice, but communicating with an informed staff can help. If you’re in the midst of this decision, call William Franckle, MD, FACS’s center at (856) 772-6500 for more information today!

Fillers FAQ: How Is the Recovery Process?⁠

Here we go! >>⁠

As a non-invasive procedure, Dr. Franckle will administer the smooth gel treatment via an injection.⁠

Mild bruising, redness, itching, and swelling are normal reactions at the injection site and should subside in 2-4 weeks or less. ⁠

Once the swelling reduces, patients typically start to notice results 2-3 weeks after treatment. ⁠

" From consultation to surgery and a year worth of follow ups, Dr.Franckle has been amazing. ⁠

He truly listens to his patients and adds his expertise to provide amazing results. I've wanted to have a breast augmentation completed for many years. I've even spoke with other surgeons.⁠

As soon as I had the consultation with Dr. Franckle, I booked the procedure. ⁠

He made me feel at ease, answered every question I had and genuinely cared for my input and how I felt. ⁠

His office staff is also wonderful and very attentive. I'm very satisfied with my results and would highly recommend." - Breast Aug (Jan 2021)⁠
