Is it true that many people are afraid to say that they went through plastic surgery?
There is a belief about plastic surgery which suggests that many people are afraid of people’s negative view on them if they undergo plastic surgery. However, a survey was taken in the UK which showed that 78% of women and 79% of men said that if they had plastic surgery done for beauty purposes, they would not be embarrassed if people outside of their close family and friends knew that they had undergone plastic surgery. This proves that large amounts of the population are not really scared of other people’s negative views on them.
Another way in which plastic surgery has become more acceptable has been that many people on high social media platforms being open about their plastic surgery experiences. Unfortunately, people will give them a lot of hate and harassment due to their choices but why should we care? It is their body, not ours.
Edward Avila, an internet personality, has made many YouTube videos about his experiences. In one video, which is titled ‘My Skin Plastic Surgery Experience’ he states:
“The way my skin looks now makes me feel a lot more comfortable without any makeup on. I can now walk outside without feeling bad about my skin. “
Obviously he is happy with the way he looks now, so why should people hate and harass someone because they are confident in how they look? Is that not a good thing?
