Plastic Surgery: A Sign of Confidence or Low Self Esteem?

When we think of plastic surgery, there can be immediate connotations, positive or negative, that come to our minds: our favorite celebrities, our guilty-pleasure reality TV shows, or even our friends and families who have had procedures. There tends to be an air of negativity around plastic surgery: assumptions about people’s motivations, and judgements about before and after transformations, can make plastic surgery feel like a taboo topic. While this blog focuses on plastic surgery, the same points apply to botox, fillers, and other cosmetic procedures.
