Plastic Surgery Blog: Wearing Plastic Surgery DesignsPosted on June 5, 2017
A few weeks ago Londons fashion week was all abuzz about a creation that was inspired by the British Plastic Surgery Association. According to recent online article the British Plastic Surgery Association collaborated with a designer to create fashions that encompass pre-surgical markings often used prior to cosmetic plastic surgery. These fashions consist of the markings that are consistent with breast augmentation, liposuction, and even abdominoplasty. Although at first glance the creation may seem tongue-in-cheek the designers claim to have many boutiques interested in the fashion. For many consumers finding a wardrobe that fits,is aesthetically pleasing, and flattering can be difficult enough. The task becomes even more challenging by adding pre-surgical markings; clearly pointing out areas that could be improved, it does cause one to wonder who these fashions were created for. Dr. Kim helps patients understand that while looking better in clothes is an important part of the plastic surgery decision,the majority of the satisfaction patients receive comes as a result of improved self-esteem and self-confidence. Most patients tell Dr. Kim that they are able to begin wearing certain fashions and wardrobe selections that they would have never worn prior to cosmetic surgery. Dr. Kim encourages patients who are considering cosmetic plastic surgery to schedule a consultation to determine which procedures would be best for them.
