Nip. Tuck. Or Else. Really?

Chances are you know someone who’s had plastic surgery – she might be the girlfriend you grab coffee with on the weekend, he may be the man whose office is right down the hall from yours or she might even be your very own sister who has been complaining of her nose (you were lucky enough to have inherited a nose from your mother’s side) for as long as you can remember. If you truly can’t think of a single person you know who’s had work done, just give it a little time. The number of women (and men) getting cosmetic procedures today is on the rise with no imaginable slowdown in sight. Joel Stein wrote an intriguing cover story piece in TIME Magazine last month titled Nip. Tuck. Or Else. The full article can be found online at TIME Magazine.

The reality, as Stein puts it is that “you’re going to get a cosmetic procedure for the same reason you wear makeup: because every other woman is.” Great, you might say to yourself. Another thing we women can add to the list to try and keep up with our ever-younger looking peers and the new “norm” which is a perfectly refreshed-looking face on a smooth-skinned, effortlessly toned body. Well, our view here at CosMedic Clinic is a little different. We don’t want you to feel like you need to get plastic surgery just because everyone else is. We want you to want to get plastic surgery for YOU and only you. Our rule of thumb is that if there is a part of your body that bothers you every day and every day you wake up wanting to change it, then plastic surgery might just be the very thing for you.

If this is something you’ve been contemplating, you may want to consider a personal consultation with Dr. Platis. If you want to learn more, please give us a call. Kate and Whitney would be happy to answer any questions you may have!
