When some people think of plastic surgery, they think of the media or television shows, like Botched, which portray some plastic surgery cases that have gone too far. If you are looking online or in a magazine, you may come across these outrageous images that almost look ridiculous, but surprisingly, surgeons say these images sell. Individuals looking to improve their appearance typically desire more.

Popular Extreme Plastic Surgery Individuals

The current “champions” of extreme plastic surgery are Pixee Fox and Justin Jedlica, who both love plastic surgery so much, they have had approximately 340 procedures altogether. Some examples of why they are so extreme, Fox recently had six ribs removed to slim her waist to look more like a Barbie doll, and both don’t plan to stop soon.

The Contrast & Trend

For celebrities, they typically get plastic surgery as an enhancement of their natural beauty, since it’s not a great marketing tool to get a botched surgery. For first-time patients, plastic surgery may be scary or unappealing. However, double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Shienbaum in Brandon, Florida, sees many people being anxious about getting bad results. The extreme plastic surgery is not a normal desire for the every-day patient.

For the most part, plastic surgeons near Tampa, FL, strive for a more natural look and focus on improving patient’s self-esteem by turning back the aging clock.

Successful Results – Avoids Revision Surgeries

Beauty is truly different for every person. However, extreme plastic surgery isn’t always beautiful. Surgeries that go too far can have very important long-term risks that the patient should be aware of. Cosmetic procedures in Lakeland, FL, should always focus on creating a subtle change that enhances an individual’s natural beauty, not a huge transformation for huge problems for the future. If any area of the body is disproportionate, there’s a higher chance there will be issues, such as scarring or skin laxity, over time. If the procedure is “overdone” or “extreme,” it may cost the patient more for revision surgeries.

Avoiding mistakes in the beginning avoids plenty and can even save your money and health. Find a board-certified plastic surgeon to sit down and have a consultation with, which will lead to a custom-tailored aesthetics plan for your natural anatomy.
