Revenge Plastic Surgery

One of the top romantic songs of all time was written by Dolly Parton and made famous by Whitney Houston: “I Will Always Love You”.

For years it was sung at weddings as a sign of the husband and wife’s undying love for each other. And they did love each other . . . for a time. Unfortunately, life happens, circumstances change, and people change. Divorce rates indicate that half of marriages end with couples going their separate ways.

Despite the break-up, couples often end up seeing each other anyway when visiting children, at family weddings, or in court. This may be the reason why a new wave of visits to plastic surgery centres has taken place. The phenomenon has been tagged “revenge plastic surgery”. Most of the clients whose divorce has been the catalyst for seeking an appointment with the surgeon are women.

“Are You Sure You Made The Right Choice? Look What You’re Missing !”

Making Ex Jealous

There are several theories behind this phenomenon. The first and most obvious reason is because they want to make their ex jealous. These are usually women whose men have run off with someone else. It is their way of saying, “Are you sure you made the right choice? Look what you’re missing!”

Other ladies have been so demoralized by the termination of their relationship that trying to look their best is their way of coping when they’re forced to see their ex again and again. Plastic surgery helps them feel confident enough to continually face their ex-partner.

After years of being married, some women are very nervous about entering the singles dating scene. They want to look younger and have the best look possible to attract another mate.

Other women try to be as positive as possible. They acknowledge the loss, but embrace the new chapter that is about to begin in their lives. Instead of wallowing in self-pity or depression, they suddenly feel inspired to make changes in every area of their lives to better themselves. This includes healthier diets, regular trips to the gym, and visits to the plastic surgeon to make changes to their physical appearance.

Heals People Emotionally And Help Getting Out Of A Slump

Revenge Plastic Surgeries List

Psychologists agree that a divorce or break-up is a traumatic event and the person experiences grief similar to that of a death. Facial cosmetic surgery as well as plastic surgery on their bodies heals people emotionally and often attributes to helping them get out of a slump. Some of the facial procedures that top the list of “revenge plastic surgery” are facelifts, rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, and neck lifts. Non-surgical options such as laser treatments, Botox, and injectable fillers are also popular to make women look as youthful and attractive as possible. The top procedures for the body are tummy tucks, liposuction, and breast implants.

Plastic surgery is a big step, and before making the decision to “go for it”, anyone should step back, take a deep breath, and assess their motives. Are you doing this for yourself or just to get back at your ex? At the end of the day, there is nothing wrong with wanting to boost your self-confidence and look as vibrant and youthful as possible, but doing the right thing at the right time and for the right reason will always be the best guideline for knowing when it is the best time to move forward.
