The Truth About Plastic Surgery: Why It's Okay to Want It

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I have seen countless individuals who have expressed a desire to undergo plastic surgery in order to improve their appearance and quality of life. And let me tell you, there is absolutely no reason to feel embarrassed or ashamed about wanting to make a change. In fact, it is a common and natural desire that many people have. If you are considering plastic surgery, it is important to educate yourself on the benefits and potential procedures that may be right for you. My name is Dr.

Marotta, and I am a double-certified facial plastic surgeon located in Long Island, New York. With degrees from prestigious institutions such as Columbia and Yale universities, I have dedicated my career to helping individuals achieve their desired aesthetic goals through plastic surgery. As a plastic surgeon, it is my responsibility to carefully evaluate each patient and determine if they are a good candidate for the procedure they are seeking. During your consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, like myself, you will be asked to explain your motivation and reasons for wanting cosmetic treatment. This is an important step in the process, as it allows us to understand your goals and expectations for the surgery.

It also helps us determine if you are pursuing plastic surgery for the right reasons. Some individuals may seek plastic surgery after the end of a relationship, in an attempt to make their former partner question their decision or to show off their improved appearance. While this may seem like a valid reason on the surface, it is actually a warning sign that the individual may not be making the decision for themselves. Additionally, if someone tells me they want to look like someone else, it is a red flag that they are not pursuing plastic surgery for the right reasons. It is important to note that a board-certified plastic surgeon will not accept these as valid reasons to undergo surgery. We are committed to ensuring that our patients are making informed and confident decisions about their appearance.

If you are unsure about your motivations for wanting plastic surgery, I highly recommend scheduling a consultation with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon.
