It’s no secret Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie aren’t having an easy time getting divorced. Allegedly, Brad has decided to seek plastic surgery to help cope with the divorce and custody battle. His family has voiced their concern over the changes, and believe he’s going too far with it.
Plastic Surgery and Divorce
Everyone copes differently, and some people seek plastic surgery to change their appearance in order to gain confidence they feel they are lacking. Still others may choose to change their appearance so they can change the way they feel.
For people going through an incredible life change that may feel out of their control, being able to decide to change their appearance can not only help them feel different, but also gain some control over their life.
According to the American Psychological Association, “Studies have shown that people report increased satisfaction with the body part they had surgery on…” This increase in satisfaction may not be a long term solution, “…but results are mixed on whether plastic surgery boost their self-esteem, quality of life, self-confidence and interpersonal relationships in the long term.” This poses the question of whether plastic surgery is the right choice during such a difficult time in life.
At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York, we care about our patients. We want them to make the best decision possible when considering plastic surgery. This is why we offer free consultations. During this appointment, we discuss the procedures a patient is interested in seeking, and if there are any challenges or risk factors that need to be considered.
We do want to know if an impending divorce is driving the decision for plastic surgery because we want our patients to be completely satisfied with the results not only temporarily, but permanently. Decisions based on emotionally-charged situations usually do not lead to long-term satisfaction.
Considerations for Divorce Driven Plastic Surgery
If you’re going through a divorce and you just want a change in appearance, consider a cosmetic procedure that won’t change your appearance dramatically. Instead of choosing a rhinoplasty, for example, consider either Smartlipo™ or Brazilian butt lift (BBL). Both of these procedures will simply help you look leaner and enhance your existing natural beauty.
With Smartlipo, you can tighten and tone areas of the body that may be difficult to affect with diet and exercise. BBL removes fat from areas of the body such as the abdomen, waist, back, and thighs and injects it into the buttocks to give the patient a shapelier, curvier appearance.
