Afraid of Plastic Surgery?
It is estimated that approximately 17 million people around the world had plastic surgery in 2015.
These numbers continue to grow year after year and prove that plastic surgery is trending upwards. If you think that 17 million is an incredibly large number, it is also estimated that 14% of the population are too timid to undergo plastic surgery! This means that there are many people seeing the transformation that plastic surgery can produce, either in their co-workers, friends, or in magazines, and wishing they had the nerve to go for it too.
Dr. Cory Torgerson – Facial Cosmetic Surgeon As Well As An Otolaryngologist With This Governing Body
Alleviating The Fear
There may be several reasons why people are timid about plastic surgery. The first and foremost hindrance is fear of going under the knife. Fifty years ago, this might have been a plausible excuse, as plastic surgery was not as common and fly-by-night doctors with little experience set up shop in wealthy neighbourhoods. Strict guidelines are now in effect that govern doctors as well as facilities. In Canada, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons (CPSO) regulates and certifies physicians. Dr. Cory Torgerson has achieved accreditation as a facial cosmetic surgeon as well as an otolaryngologist with this governing body. His surgical facility in Yorkville has also been granted the highest rating (Level 3) that the CPSO offers to private medical clinics. Fear of going under the knife can be alleviated by investigating the amount of experience a surgeon has. Dr. Torgerson has been performing surgeries for many years and has successfully operated from his own Yorkville clinic for several years.
Facial cosmetic surgery is constantly being improved with new technology and techniques. Because of this, safety standards have also improved for any patient considering something in the facial plastics field. Anyone timid about surgery should be able to gain some peace of mind knowing this. Dr. Torgerson is constantly upgrading his knowledge by continual study and attending conferences. He is considered so proficient and skilled in facial cosmetics that he is often called upon to teach at many of these conferences both nationally and internationally.
No One Should Be Fearful Of Wanting To Age Gracefully And Maintain A Fresh Appearance
Feel Confident In Your Surgeon
Fear of not finding the right surgeon is also a cause for procrastinating on surgery. All surgeons conduct an initial consultation with potential clients where you are able to express what your surgical goals are, ask questions, and view previous patient photos. If you don’t feel comfortable with your choice of physician, there is no sense moving forward. After the first appointment, you should feel confident in the surgeon’s ability, at ease in their facility, and excited about your new transformation.
Finally, some people put off surgery out of fear of what others might think. They fear they will be judged by putting unnecessary focus on the outer self. Dr. Torgerson advises that after surgery many people won’t even know you have “had work done” because his goal is to make you look as natural as possible, rather than change your appearance. No one should be fearful of wanting to age gracefully and maintain a fresh appearance. It’s important to maintain and improve who you are, body, soul, and spirit!
