||The Dangers of Plastic Surgery
by Jeff Lakie
There is very little in this life that comes without risk, and
the dangers of plastic surgery are a prime example of this. Most
of us have been reminded by elderly relatives that our lives
could be cut short any day simply by crossing the street; this
adage is usually quoted to remind us to live each day to the
full, and to do the things that will bring fulfilment to our
lives, despite the many risks inherent. While it is true that
the sensible among us put the inevitable risks of daily life to
the back of our minds in order, simply, to stay sane, a balanced
life is perhaps knowing risks to pay attention to, and which to
There is little doubt that the dangers of plastic surgery are
multiple, but its popularity nevertheless continues unabated.
These dangers, clearly, are for many people acceptable one, and
plastic surgery seems to be something that offers potential
benefits significant enough to plough on regardless.
But there is also an element in the human condition that clings
to the tenet that ignorance is bliss, that it won't happen to me
anyway, and perhaps there is something to be said for that
belief. Constantly thinking of the possible dangers of life will
only immobilise us with fear. We would never take a chance on
anything; never seek to better ourselves, or our world. And
while plastic surgery has its detractors as well as its
advocates, surely even those opposed to the surgical alteration
of a healthy body can applaud the willingness to take a leap of
faith towards something believed in?
They say that knowledge is power, and the making of an informed
decision is only possible with all the facts to hand. Perhaps
you will choose to continue on your desired route despite
understanding the risks and dangers of plastic surgery, but you
will be making a decision based on something real, rather than
the foolhardy belief that things cannot go wrong.
